Some events are meant to be continued and then they become a tradition. Since core team leader, Sheila de Leon Tracey left 3 years ago for the United States, her heart to reach out to her country remained. She is one of our 5 core team ambassadors. Welcome to the fourth year of interactive activities and school supply giving called Pen & Paper.

Ate Sheila arrived that same morning- excited and all smiles. She hasn’t been back in the Philippines for more than a year. Greeting her arrival were a number of co-core team members- most she is meeting for the first time. We were glad 20 other volunteers responded and showed up to reach out to 30 kids of Right Start.

Before distributing packs of notebooks, pad paper, colors and pens, we had getting to know and two interactive games with 5 teams. First we played was Cone Me If You Can. Teams show their math answers by raising up cones on their heads. Second was a Quiz Bee made Pen & Paper style. Individuals of each team write down tough answers for different categories. We had English, History, Filipino, Math and Geography categories.

Thank you Ate Sheila for keeping the outreach alive. We look forward for the 5th next year on your special day!
