SISTER SCHOOL APPLICATION
Sister Schools involves a friendly relationship of steady communication and exchange of information about each other, and the contribution of only approved items such as used crayons, used chalk, used pencils, erasers or pens if you chose. Schools here can do crayons collections or collect caps and rings (see Caps that Count - -colored plastic bottle caps and the rings around the bottles) for their classroom in an African school, and enjoy pen pal relationships for pairs of students. In some cases, classrooms here may be able to view their classroom in their sister school if the classroom there has a computer set up like Skype. The cost of this program is $50.00 per year for each classroom. Communication from off-continent does not flow for them they way it does here, and takes constant oversight to ensure a smooth exchange with the schools. Making in-person contact for participating schools on the African continent is often needed, and explains much of the cost for participating in the program.
