Decidedly Academic. Distinctively Christian.

DR Trip 2 | Day 2

Hello, this is Zachary Reid, Riley, and Dayton. Today was our first day at the foundation and we were greeted with quite the welcoming. Today we saw a home run derby and handed out awards to the winners. There were about 200 Dominican teens who were there to watch the derby and cheer on the players. But the really big show came before the events started with a huge helicopter on the baseball field at the foundation. Manny called his friends from the Dominican Air Force to show up and they flew up in the sky and had 6 people sky dive down into the stadium. The last person to land had a parachute that was the Dominican flag. Everyone was cheering. It was so cool!

Next we sorted donations for our trip to Azua tomorrow. We made about 300 bags full of shirts, pants, toys, candy, and hygiene products for each person we meet tomorrow. It took a while to sort everything, but we had a really good system down between parents and students.

We had a delicious lunch and Ms. Rychen, Ms. Dow, and Izzy’s grandpa went to the supermarket and bought a ton of food for 15 families in the community. They bought rice, chicken, vinegar, oil, pasta, salt, beans, bread, and so much more! We walked around El Tamarindo where we passed out bags of groceries. During the walk a student, Cassie Martinez, performed a moving prayer in Spanish. The people truly appreciated the groceries and the prayers. More people asked for items, so we told them that we will pass out donations on Monday.

Online giving day is TODAY! We need 100% participation from FCS families to reach our goal. Your student is coming home with a red bracelet on his/her wrist to remind you to go online and give today! Link in profile. 18,000 hearts were glued together in the last 36 hours for one of our exhibit installations! Hats off to our 50+ volunteers who made it happen. This installation captures the beauty of community, a compilation of unique individuals (i.e. hearts) coming together as a whole. We are all made by God, in His image, therefore each and every person is valuable. Imagine if we treated everyone with that in mind! Visit the exhibit next Thursday and Friday to see more. @oneschoolsresponse We’re a little over a week away for Foothill’s largest event of the year! Please plan on visiting the @oneschoolsresponse art exhibit on Thurs, Oct 26 or Fri, Oct 27 anytime from 6:00 - 9:00 PM. Mark your calendar October 26 or 27 to visit the @oneschoolsresponse art exhibit on bias, bigotry, bullying. Free and open to the public!
