Welcome November! The holiday season is upon us! What a wonderful time of year to give gratitude for life, health, and all of the small daily wins!
As we approach the end of our second 6 weeks and begin our final fall semester units! We love being able to witness your child's growth mentally and physically! We are grateful to be part of your child's life journey!
This month we kick off one of our most special months called Peru-giving. Last year as a studio we raised $600 that directly impacted the children in Peru through the Warrior organization. Money raised will directly go towards sustainable energy investment for the jungle village by using the money to purchase solar panels on their homes and business as the village currently run electricity for 3 hours a day using a generator. Money will also help purchase supplies and clothing for the All Girls Orphanage in Cusco. This orphanage is a safe haven for young girls ages 11 - 17 that are victims of sex trafficking. Finally, supplies and resources such as diapers, cleaning supplies, and food are delivered to the refuge home of Mother Teresa where they take in all ages that have been left abandoned due to their needs.
360 students last year participated not only in monetary donations but also by leaving a lasting imprint on each child that we served in Peru. Rubber band bracelets that are made by our students are passed out to each person that interact with while in Peru. This became a simple but yet lasting imprint on their hearts.
This year our goal is to raise $1000 as a studio and also send over 1000 bracelets by November 20th! If your child attends a Prairie elementary school, in their Spanish classes they will also be participating in bracelet making and learning about the Peruvian culture! We love being able to team up with the College Community World Language Staff to make this mission make an impact this month!
IF we meet our goal by November 20th of $1000 and 1000 bracelets, Studio 360 is going to put on a FREE GLOW party for the entire studio on Friday, January 27th! This will be a fun time that will include glow sticks, dancing and fun for FREE AND to up it even MORE we will have a PIE your teacher time during the party where selected students will pie a teacher!
