This year Bumpe students were able to find distant friends with students at Vistamar School in California. The pen pal program allowed students to connect with one another on a personal level as they shared their interests, hobbies, and daily lives. The students received the letters via email, and for Bumpe students, whose lives have been ravaged by civil war, the letters were a real snapshot of life here in America.
We are grateful for the success of the program and hope to continue the correspondence between students here in America and Sierra Leone. We would like to especially thank the students, faculty, and staff of Vistamar for their involvement and participation.
