Ugandan Global Project a Success!

Our Ugandan Global Project has come to an end.

It has been a terrific success!

We worked together and raised more money for our new Ugandan friends than we could have ever hoped!

Mrs. Yollis' class collected $1142 Mrs. Ranney's class collected $800 Mr. Salsich class collected $970 2KM and 2KJ collected $1680 Team Toa's School collected $15,000


We have been able to purchase the land for the ABC Divine Foundation Primary School, ensuring they now have somewhere to play. We have also provided enough money for the school to start building a sheltered kitchen and dining hall.

All About American Money

The students  living in America have been collecting pledge money for the Ugandan Global Project.

They are proud to announce that:

Mrs. Yollis' class collected          $1142
Mrs. Ranney's class collected       $800
Mr. Salsich class collected            $970

We are very proud that we were able to help our Ugandan friends!

Below is a VoiceThread created by the American students. 

In it, you will learn a little about the value of each coin and bill, and what can be seen on the currency.

What did you learn from the VoiceThread?

Do you have any questions about the American currency?

How is the money like your money? How is it different?

Chinese Currency

In China our money is called Renminbi or RMB for short

Our class raised
8,679 RMB
which is about
US$ 1,300

What an AMAZING effort.

Our school had a bake sale and all 23 classes came out to walk also
We ended up raising more than
That's more than
US$ 15,000

Can you believe it?

Here is a picture of our Chinese notes and coins.

We researched facts about Chinese money and put together a movie.

Have you ever seen Chinese yuan (also called renminbi, or kuai)?
How is our money similar or different to yours?
What did you find interesting?
