This next year Saint John School students will be starting a pilot program with an organization called Corazon. In this program, students in each class from first through eighth grade will be paired with a student in Tijuana. They will be writing letters and raising money for kids in need of financial help in Tijuana. A group of seventh graders who will be eighth graders as of next year are working with Mrs. Teresa Roberts, the Faith in Action teacher, to make the program happen. Since most of the kids that students will be interacting with speak only Spanish, bilingual seventh grader Antonia Pareja will work as a translator/consultant for the letters.

“When people need me to translate something for their letters, I would be more than willing to help, and I also will be helping to write the letters for them, too,” said Antonia.

There is also a possibility that students will be able to video-chat with the kids.

Olivia Hansen, one of the project leaders, stated, “I think that it would be great for the students to be able to interact with the kids in Tijuana and be able to make new friends that they probably would not have without the program.”

This program is a special opportunity for both the students at Saint John’s and for the children in Tijuana. The committee in charge of this is looking to create new experiences for both students at Saint John School and the kids in Tijuana, while still raising money for the kids.
