What is Roots & Shoots?

What is Roots & Shoots?

Roots creep underground everywhere and make a firm foundation. Shoots seem very weak, but to reach the light, they can break open brick walls. Imagine that the brick walls are all the problems we have inflicted on our planet. Hundreds of thousands of roots & shoots, hundreds of thousands of young people around the world, can break through these walls. We CAN change the world.

- Dr. Jane

The Roots & Shoots program is about making positive change happen—for our communities, for animals and for the environment. With tens of thousands of young people in almost 100 countries, the Roots & Shoots network connects youth of all ages who share a desire to create a better world. Young people identify problems in their communities and take action. Through service projects, youth-led campaigns and an interactive website, Roots & Shoots members are making a difference across the globe.

Spaghetti Dinner Tomorrow Night!

Spaghetti Dinner

We would like to bring your attention to the water shortage in South Sudan and the rest of Africa. We heard about a challenge and took it on. Now we are trying to raise one thousand dollars towards purchasing a well drilling rig. The challenge is called the Iron Giraffe Challenge.

Our 7th grade class is having a spaghetti dinner on Wednesday April 8th, 2015 at 6pm at the waterford school gymnasium to help raise money to purchase a new well drilling rig for South Sudan. We hope you can help us so we can give as many people as possible fresh drinking water!!!!!

Adults $7 / Children 8 and under $4

Make checks out to: The Waterford School.  
Memo: “Water For South Sudan - Spaghetti Dinner”
