About 35 eighth graders from our Beveridge Middle School partnership descended on UNO just in time for lunch. Compliments of Service Learning, we were able to eat together in the cafeteria and continue conversations we began the last time we visited Beveridge. The eighth grade students also began asking the questions they had prepped for a day of interviews at Cafe Internationale.
Getting henna painted on our hands, sipping Arabic coffee, looking at ipads loaded with photos of various countries, wearing traditional dress from Oman, peering through Chinese money that was see-through, sharing about our partnership in a room set aside for Service Learning presentations, taking photos, laughing, cheering, celebrating what it means to be alive and actually make friends with people from all over the world!!......that was our day.
Thanks to our Beveridge partners for your energy, questions, knowledge, and humor. It was a great day!!
