Students participate in 1st annual 4th grade trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum

On October 12, students participated in the first annual 4th grade trip to the Cincinnati Art Museum. At the museum, 10 groups of 15 students were led throughout the museum by docents where they learned about art, history, language and cultures from around the world.

Each group saw collections from all over the planet, including Africa where groups of students connected instantly by locating Sierra Leone on the map and telling the docents all about the schools that are being built there with help from Wyoming students!

Another amazing Wyoming Primary Schools Harvest Fest!

More than 600 community members gathered for the annual Primary Schools Harvest Fest. One hundred sixty-five (165) student and adult volunteers served around 200 pounds of pasta, 800 cups of chili made from 480 tomatoes and other veggies from the primary gardens. The event, along with t-shirt sales and the Spring Plant Sale, brought in more than $7,000 for phase 2 of construction of the new school in Sierra Leone. This is the second school that is being constructed through funding from this Wyoming Primary School Project.

This year-round project starts when students and teachers decide the menu for the community dinner the previous January. Gardens are planted with the produce needed for the menu and student tend the crops throughout the year until harvest.

The lead up to the 2018 Harvest Fest included celebrations at each Primary School with costumes, water balloons, dancing, and some scooter races with special guests.
