Spring Branch Headlines

 

 

 

St. Francis Episcopal School invited students from Spring Branch Middle to hear speaker Salva Dut talk of his experience as one of the Lost Boys of Sudan.   All 6th graders read the book A Long Walk to Water which was about his life fleeing the ravages of war in Sudan in the 1980's.  He spoke about his foundation that raises money for building wells in Africa.  Twenty-six students were able to attend. Spring Branch is very appreciative of the opportunity for our students to hear him talk about his journey and looks forward to Future partnerships with St. Francis. Thank you to our librarian, Mrs. Miller, for organizing this incredible experience for our students.
