Mrs. Siron and her 3rd graders enjoyed a skype session this morning with Samuel Ebwongu, Samuel's wife, Ruth, two students and a teacher from Soroti, Uganda. Mrs. Siron and Mr. Ebwongu first met through The Pencil Project, where the Langford family shipped two 30 lb. boxes of school supplies and playground toys, to Samuel's school, and are preparing to send two more similar boxes. Mrs. Siron and Mr. Ebwongu have continued to grow their relationship through Skype, where today, the students were able to share the traditions and holidays we celebrate in the U.S., while learning about the traditions in Uganda. Students were able to ask Mr. Ebwongu's students about their favorite food and recreational activities.
