On October 17th, we launched the program to our school through an assembly. Stokes and Mrs. Jacobson, two teachers at our school who are part of the Women Who Care program spoke to us, as well as our principal Mrs. Galt about helping change the world. Instantly, the program was a success! When the assembly let out, there was a line up in front of the bulletin board where the sign up sheet was. Our next meeting will be on in the U.
