The sweet taste of success | Photo of the day 2.1

Second- and fifth-graders at The Island School (at right) watch with anticipation as Ursula Pontieri, the school’s second-grade teacher, opens the box holding a cake to celebrate the successful end of the Kids Can Make A Difference Calendar project.

Sales of the 2018 calendar brought in $9,935, which will used for projects on Bainbridge Island’s sister island of Ometepe in Nicaragua.

The calendar proceeds will help pay for college for Ometepe youth, school books, software readers for the blind, sign language workshops, and other community efforts, including a weekend ambulance driver for Ometepe.

This year’s calendar was put together by The Island School’s second- and fifth-grade students, with the younger students creating the art while the older students did the writing and made the monthly grids for the calendar.

Before the cake, the students presented Paul Carroll, treasurer for the Bainbridge-Ometepe Sister Island Association, with a check for $9,935.
