Today we started the morning off with our morning devotion on the beautiful beach and then drove to the Manny Mota Foundation. While we were there, we sorted all of our donations and items into piles, getting ready to hand them out. Part of our team served the children lunch, while the rest of the team talked to the children. It was really crazy to think that the lunch we served them was the only meal they would get for the day. Later, we played volleyball, tag, and keep away, and the children had joy on their faces the entire time. Our personal experience was with a boy named Alberto. He was very enthusiastic and translated what we had trouble saying in Spanish to the other children, creating a personal bond with us! After the children left we ate our amazing home cooked lunch, made by Melania. Lastly, our team played football together, and toured the foundation. Today we learned to be thankful for the food we eat, and no matter what to be happy through what God has given us.  At the team debrief we talked about how it’s a blessing to bless others… a lesson we hope to never forget.

Tune in next time!

Maddie and Maya A.

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!
