International Valentines’s Day Exchange

Half a world apart, students from the Kanana Township in South Africa were brought together with students from the Jackson County School District in Arkansas. On Valentine’s Day, phone calls were placed between the schools, one between students in the third grade and again for high school students. We found that we are not so different in what we eat, how we play, and our hopes for the future. The South African students, sweltering in the 90 degree plus summer weather, were fascinated by the fact that the Arkansas students had been dismissed early on the previous day due to snow and ice. We look forward to being able to continue this exchange in the future.
