Aldrin has initiated an informal partnership with Riamukurwe Primary School in Nyeri County, Kenya. The partnership has been organized with the help of both the Reston and Nyeri County Rotary Clubs. This year, Sara Spizzirri’s class will partner with fellow second graders in Kenya and will complete a number of projects together in order to foster student understanding of the world through real, human connections. The projects will tie directly to the second grade geography unit, as well as our Positivity Project and Portrait of a Graduate goals. Students of both schools will develop their verbal and written communication skills as well as form friendships with students abroad to increase the cultural awareness of all.
