NationalPresbyterian Schooland Buddy Bison Take Two Trips Already!
Though school just started a month ago, Buddy Bison has already visited Echo Hill Camp with National Presbyterian School 5th and 6th graders AND Homestead Farms with three kindergarten classes. At Echo Hill Buddy Bison also made it to the zip line!
If that wasn’t enough fun, students and teachers at the school joined forces to create a school power point presentation that was shown at an assembly highlighting Buddy Bison’s Summer Adventures (which can also be seen on Buddy Bison’s website)!
Remembering Haiti’s Earthquake and Forests
So many of us watched news coverage of Haiti’s earthquake and wondered what we could do to help. Many kids worked with their classmates to raise money to help rebuild. What some people don’t realize is that Haiti’s forests have been in trouble for a long time.
Ninety years ago, well over half of Haiti was covered in forest. Now just 2% of the land is forested. Some third-graders from The Bullis School recently created Buddy Bison Park dioramas, depicting American and Haitian Parks.
Dioramas made by Paris, Rotimi and Preston were showcased at a special presentation to one 16-year-old earthquake survivor named Ruthnie at the Haitian Flag Day event, at the White House Old Executive Office Building.
Paris’s dioramas depicted “Buddy Bison at Rock Creek National Park” and Rotimi’s featured “Buddy Bison at Yellowstone National Park.” Preston’s piece, entitled “Buddy Bison Dreams of a Reforested Haiti,” was presented along with Buddy Bison to Ruthnie by fifth-grader Alexander, who attends National Presbyterian School, another Buddy Bison School.
In his speech, Alexander said, "We only see the devastation on TV," said Alexander, "but there are so many beautiful things about Haiti, too, and I want people to know that."
