Pinwheel Making Event! 12/8 6:30-8:00 pm


Stop by Conant School on Tuesday December 8 between 6:30 pm-8:00 pm to make a pinwheel to donate! For each pinwheel collected the Bezos Family Foundation, in part with Students Rebuild, will donate $2.

The money donated will go to the Healing Classrooms program. The program helps train teachers in special techniques to engage conflict-affected children with social-emotional learning opportunities and to create secure, nurturing learning environments. Some of the pinwheels collected will also be distributed to Healing Classrooms in Lebanon and Iraq. More information about Healing Classrooms can be found here.

The Conant goal is to raise $1500, so we need to make about 350 more pinwheels to go along with the pinwheels that were already made and donated as part of Pinwheels for Peace earlier this year.

If you’d like to make some pinwheels but can’t attend the event, feel free to make them and drop them off – There will be a collection bin in the front lobby for pinwheels – Pinwheels will be sent 12/23, so please drop off your pinwheels before the break!
Here is a short video about the project. It includes how to make a pinwheel at the end.
