We continue to support la Puerta Abierta’s “Forever School” Campaign with our spare change collection. Children enjoy dropping coins in the jar and watching our efforts grow!
Stay tuned for our pop-up Global Market featuring artisan products handmade by the mothers at la Puerta Abierta in Guatemala. Market bags, coasters, dog toys, and more! All proceeds benefit our sister school.
More Than Words
Unfortunately, due to COVID – 19 we did not host our annual book drive for More than Words in 2020.
However, this organization continues to be active and is taking donations. If you wish to donate books, DVD’s and CD’s you can drop off at their facility @ 56 Felton Street, Waltham MA 02453.
A bin is also located at The District in Burlington between buildings 1200 and 1400.
Also, Town of Arlington 51 Grove Street one Saturday a month.
All items must be in great condition as they will be resold. Thank you for your support.
La Puerta Abierta, Guatemala
In March 2021, Great Expectations hosted an online pop up market for our school community. On sale were hand made items by the La Puerta Abierta mothers artisan group. We sold market bags, napkins, coasters and masks. We have raised over $200 so far and still have items for sale.
In January 2021 the school held a Nut Butter Drive for the Arlington Food Pantry. We collected 64 jars of various nut butters for this very worthy organization. We wish to thank all our families for their support.
