Northwest Elementary News
Welcome to Northwest Local School, Home of the Mohawks "Preparing students to meet the academic, social, civic and career needs for a global society."
The Imani Milele Ugandan Children's Choir will be performing at Northwest Elementary School on Monday, August 25 @ 2:15 pm for grades Pre-K - 5. Sara and Brett Wilson are hosting them this week at Mt. Hope Bible Camp and it worked out that they were able to get them for the afternoon to come and do a performance for our students. The choir will also be here Monday evening to hold a community performance, starting at 6 PM. We could really use your help in sharing this event with others. A love offering will be received during the evening performance to help with their travel expenses and towards sponsorship. However, they will have their merchandise and sponsorship tables available for teachers to view during afternoon assembly, as well. I encourage each of you to consider supporting this worthy organization and ministry.
"Imani Milele is a Ugandan phrase that literally means “everlasting faith”. It is a registered nonprofit organization based in Uganda working with poor, rural communities especially affected by poverty, disease and ignorance. The organization was established in 1989 and currently serves over 3,000 orphaned and vulnerable children providing housing, education and skill training. Imani Children’s Choir’s purpose is promoting and bringing awareness to the plight of the orphaned and vulnerable children in Uganda through their craft in music and dance. Their performances have earned them recognition as one of the best children’s choirs in the nation. Performance is Traditional African dance, song, and drum routines."
