Pen pals in El Salvador

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, in Oxford, got a helping hand from Spanish teachers and many students from the Norwich Middle School. Recently, St. Paul’s Youth Program, called Genesis, began a pen pal program with several Episcopal Churches in the country of El Salvador. The Genesis Program received dozens of letters from their Salvadorean counterparts, ranging in ages from 3-years-old to teenagers. Delaney and Sophia Root, both members of the Norwich Middle School and the Genesis program, took these letters to their Spanish teachers, Señora Brooks and Señora Ratnayake both of the Norwich Middle School, who without hesitation worked with their Middle School students and the children of the Genesis program to help facilitate an accurate translation of these letters. This allowed the Genesis program children a chance to read, understand, and respond to their Salvadorean pen pals. A special thanks to all who have been involved thus far. There have been two separate writing groups in the Genesis Youth program, pictured is the second Genesis Writing group as well as the students of the Norwich Middle School with their Spanish Teachers Señora Brooks and Señora Ratnayake.
