Nga ban, Parents,
Thank you for your support of AYA’s MOYO Sat. Shule. Our first 2 months have come and gone. We’ve continued to refine our process and are more settled in to our new building. It’s time for our students to raise the roof!
We have set Sat. Dec. 13th (10am -12pm) for all students in both NGOLO and MOYO shules tol demonstrate to parents and community what they’ve learned and accomplished. To facilitate this and to create increased motivation, we’ve assigned each MOYO student demonstration projects that will require them to develop new skills and will reinforce other language arts and math skills. Please support them in making their projects successful.. Projects are:
* Omowale’s Bridge In 1964 Omowale (Malcolm X) returned from Africa with a realization: “In the minds of our people, Africa is too far away. We need to build a bridge between our people there and our people here.” MOYO students are asked to build a bridge of toothpicks and wood glue. It should be able to hold 1-3 kilograms of weight. It will be stress-tested. Each toothpick in the bridge must symbolize what’s needed to build a bridge between Africans on the Continent and Africans in the Diaspora. Academic pathways which can be explored: math, physics, language arts, social studies, international relations, nation building.
