Pen Pal Program
Our newest Board Member, Forest Borie, a teacher at Longfellow Middle School, is very interested in setting up a Pen Pal program between Berkeley 7th grade students and similar-aged Sakai students. His idea is for students to exchange letters containing drawings/stories about everyday life to help promote understanding and friendships, and to practice language skills. We are currently looking for an equivalent to a "Forest Borie" in Sakai who would be interested in starting such a program.
Forest has also started a 7th grade student Pen Pal program with Ibara, in Okayama Prefecture.
