Sarah and Brad brought with them soccer balls and pumps for the Pessare schools. When classes started last week, I went and distributed the balls. The kids were soooo excited! Thank you so much Sarah and Brad and everyone who contributed to the purchase. They will be well used and appreciated. And as the elementary school principal said "We're going to the finals this year!" Go Togo!
Here is the elementary boys team captain along with the girls captain. Don't they look excited? hehe
Here are the elementary kids lining up for announcements. They need to stay equal spaced or someone might bother someone else ;-)
Here is the middle school director with two teachers holding up the new balls for the students.
Here are all the middle school students listening to announcements and seeing the balls!
Letters take 2-5 weeks to arrive; packages a bit longer. I believe the postage for a letter 1st class, air mail will be $.98. As for packages, be careful...the cost will quickly sky rocket. Use this to estimate the price. Flatrate boxes are $42. I promise I'll appreciate a letter just as much as lots of chocolate ;-) Make sure you send all mail by airmail and it is under 5lbs. Don't insure it...They say it's not worth it!
