Coyote Ridge Fundraiser Day

DSC_002596ca58This spring, Coyote Ridge Elementary held a multifaceted fundraiser for their partner school, St. Paul Primary School, in Uganda. Throughout the day, Dale Peterson and Devaki Douillard from the Mwebaza Foundation, updated classes about this year’s progress at their African partner school. This day was also “Hat Day”, where students were given permission to wear a hat all day long if they donate one dollar or more to their partner school. At the end of the day, student and parent volunteers sold beautiful African beaded jewelry and other small gifts, donated by the Wandishin Family from Coyote Ridge Elementary. In total, Coyote Ridge Elementary raised $2,180.86 to be used to finish construction of the new school building at St. Paul!
