The ninth grade Spanish curriculum is composed of several units, one of which revolves around the values and benefits of solidarity; therefore, buildOn’s solidary actions fit well into the concept studied in class. If you have any questions regarding buildOn donations or if you would like to participate in the buildOn club and “trek”, you may contact Sonia Rabahi or Zahra Boudaoui.
 
Thank you to Hudson Rogers, Karolina Skrastina, Emma MacGregor, and Alessandra Varnes for taking the time to make a difference in our community by talking to DIS students about their experience. A final thanks to Mrs. Jade de Rios for dedicating one of her classes to the presentation.

 
La clase de español del noveno grado ha invitado a los estudiantes que han participado en la aventura organizada por la organización sin fines de lucro buildOn. Los alumnos presentaron el viaje que hicieron a Haití y las experiencias que tuvieron con los extranjeros y su cultura. Explicaron que buildOn es una organización que permite educar a niños gracias al dinero y al soporte de las personas voluntarias que se comprometen a ayudar a construir escuelas.
 
El currículum de español del noveno grado consiste en varias unidades, una de ellas se centra en el tema de la solidaridad; por consiguiente, las acciones solidarias de buildOn son adecuadas a los conceptos estudiados en clase. Si tienen preguntas sobre la iniciativa de buildOn o si quieren participar en el club y el viaje de buildOn, pueden contactar a Sonia Rabahi o a Zahra Boudaoui.
 
Igualmente agradecemos a Hudson Rogers, Karolina Skrastina, Emma MacGregor, y Alessandra Varnes por darnos un poco de su tiempo en beneficio de la comunidad de DIS compartiendo sus experiencias con los estudiantes de la escuela. Gracias a la Señora Jade de Ríos por dar una hora de su tiempo para que los estudiantes presentaran sus experiencias.
