Each student traced their hand and wrote their wish for the world. This is a voluntary activity and every student participated! That really shows a commitment to leadership, caring and growth! In February, a team from Free the Children will visit Iles to present an all school assembly and workshops for older students. In April, we will celebrate our O Ambassador activities at our Seventh Annual Iles Writer's Conference entitled, "Me to We". Stay tuned for our continuing adventures!
