We had the pleasure of hosting 2 government officials from Bolivia today.  They had seen our work with the tortilla art project and writing and delivering letters of our immigration stories to the "Gang of 8" senators working on immigration reform before our participation in the "Time is Now" march.  The purpose of the visit was to see how schools engage students with work in the community.  After introductions we presented one of the news reports done on our work by univision.  Then we showed some photos from the event, and afterwards students shared some of the content of the letters that had been delivered to the senators.  We also presented our anti-bullying music video and had a long discussion afterwards about the challenges faced in the teenage years.  Finally, we did a tour of the work we have done improving Paul's environment which included the huge mural we painted and the pollinator garden we created this year.  We made some very good friends from Boliva today and we wish them the best of luck in their travels!
