Many thanks to parent Molly Corbett of the Asylee Women's Enterprise (AWE) for helping to make this happen.
Each class of older students is matched with a class of younger students as "prayer partners." The groups meet once a month for crafts, stories, and prayer. Shown here are kindergarten and 8th grade partners working together to prepare for Christmas.
