Congratualtions Emma Gomes
A Duniway 8th grader who represented our McMinnville Rotary in the State Rotary Speech Competition held in Pendleton on May 15, won this state competition. The message of her speech was the negative impact of being selfish and how it affects others; she infused humor and examples to engage her audience. Congratulations, Emma, for representing yourself, your school, and our community beautifully!
This was the 4-Way Speech Contest based on the Rotary 4-Way test- both middle schools participated at the school level and then the three finalists from each school participated at the McMinnville noon Rotary level and the winner, Emma, went on to the district competition and won! Hooray Emma!
Is it the Truth?
Is it Fair to all concerned?
Will it build Goodwill and better Friendships?
Will it be Beneficial to all concerned?
7th Grade Service Day
This year, the 7th grade Social Studies classes- after learning about regions of the world that experience hardships that are not a part of our Western lives- conducted the Global Empathy Project. Along with being a tangible way for kids to give back and embrace the needs of a larger, less fortunate, global community, this project also naturally grew out of the empathetic spirit that we hope all humanities classes intrinsically inspire. Additionally, this project was an organic response to our Medical Teams International field trip- that all 7th graders attended.
This year, students donated 31 "Hope Kits" (ziplock bags filled with toiletry supplies to be shipped to disaster zones) and $566 to two deserving charities.
$414 was donated to Medical Teams International (for mosquito nets and the cost of shipping medicine) and $152 went to Heifer International (for flocks of chicks and geese to be sent impoverished villages)
