Fishers Elementary School students learn importance of giving back
By Anna Skinner
Fishers Elementary School first-grade teacher Brooke Daniel received a Mudlove bracelet for Christmas. The spirit of the gift spread through her elementary classroom and into the community.
Mudlove bracelets come from an organization whose mission is to provide clean water to Africa. Daniel was excited by her gift and shared its story with her students.
“I told students how cool it was that they provide clean water, and (the students) were kind of confused by that,” she said. “It just really sparked a lot of conversation with them, and we began brainstorming ways to make a difference in our community.”
