English Class Participates in Cultural Exchange with Students From Ghana
Mrs. Evansâ€™ English III Honors class is participating in a cultural exchange with students from the Asanteman Senior High School in Ghana, Africa. The students from Ghana are the same age as the Juniors in English III and have communicated with Mrs. Evans and her students via Skype and Edmodo.
The students in Ghana have sent gifts including handmade bracelets, scarves, shirts, photos, and letters describing themselves, their school, and their families. Mrs. Evansâ€™ students have sent videos and a package containing scrapbooks and letters describing many aspects of our educational system, food, entertainment, and school life here at Sun Valley. The Asanteman students have applied for a government grant to help them visit our school next year. Hopefully, this visit will actually take place for a wonderful educational opportunity!
