1. Purpose

Purpose:

The world is shrinking in the digital age. Children can now circle the globe without leaving their homes. It is a big world out there and we want our students to become caring and cognizant global citizens by walking in the shoes of others. We define a “global citizen” as a person with a sense of responsibility to learn about other countries, including the cultural, political, socioeconomic, environmental, and geographical issues that affect them. Our ultimate goal is to have each child answer the question, “Now that you know what is going on around the world, what are you going to do with that information?”
