YLI Students on MLK National Day of Service

Blue Ribbon Youth Leadership Institute (YLI) students served with the United Way of the Greater Triangle as part of the MLK National Day of service. The purpose of the "Community Reads" program is to increase childhood literacy (K-3) through reading. YLI students participated in group readings and skill enhancing activities through the Scrap Exchange. Sixteen students dedicated their morning of service and education for youth in our community. In the afternoon, students volunteered in Durham for Book Harvest. Students organized a book drive for communities that do not have access to high quality books.

Thank you to our students and their leaders for setting a great example of service. 

"Everyone can be great because everyone can serve." - MLK

Team Welcomes Chilean Teacher

This week Frank Porter Graham-Bilingue's International Teacher Support Team (ITST) welcomed a new first-grade teacher and her husband from Chile!  Parents, teachers, PTA Thrift Shop, Sweeps, and the team at Visiting International Faculty (VIF) came together to help them. They were able to assist with finding an apartment, connecting utilities, and moving enough donated furniture and household items to furnish the apartment. And it all happened before the snow came!
