Falmouth Rotary Club Hands Across Borders Project Connects Falmouth & Guatemalan Students
On October 21,2014 the Falmouth Rotary Club and the Falmouth Elementary Schools will welcome the Consul General of Guatemala to Falmouth. Consul General Patricia Loavagnino and Vice Consul Jorge Archila will pay visits to all four of the Falmouth elementary schools to address the 4th grade classes who have been working this year on a project titled "Hands Across Borders".
The students are engaged in a school to school project with "sister" schools in Guatemala. They are exploring the culture, language , and art of the country. Writing skills are being put to use in correspondence between students and the hope is that lifelong relationships will be established between the children.
The project was conceived by members of the Falmouth Rotary Club And is part of its International and Educational Focus.
The Consul General will also be attending a reception at the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce attended by our Town Manager and Selectmen from 11:30 - 1:00pm .
The day will be completed by her attendance at the Rotary Club's dinner that evening where she will be the quest of honor and the evening's speaker at Atria Woodbriar.
