Pen Pals

For the past 3 months, the Level 5-6 class has been writing letters back and forth with their pen pals. (Volunteers from the Arlington Hills Church). Every Friday the class studies writing with their teacher, Jon. They have practiced letter writing style and how to respond to questions from their pen pals.

Last Thursday, we had a Meet and Greet with the students and pen pals. MLC volunteer Jon planned a great mixer that let all the students converse with the volunteers. Then, over refreshments, the pen pal pairs were able to sit down and talk with each other. It was a great event and we are so happy to be able to partner more with the church!
