The Orphan Bike Project

11 Apr

Students,

If you enjoyed STEM, like biking, and want to help others, this project might be for you! Here is a video I created last year for the project. More information is in the student bulletin!

Did you know bikes are one of the most efficient machines in the world? Are you interested in helping local kids? Mr. Ryan (8th grade) is putting together a team of students to pair up with a local orphan. You can work together with another kid to rebuild their bike. Don’t know how to work with bikes? No problem. We can learn together! The Orphan Bike Project will take place on 4 Saturdays here on campus. Here is the schedule:

April 23rd- Introductions, Clean bikes, Note what needs to be replaced, pictures and interviews           

May 14th- refurbish bicycles (brake pads, brake cables)

May 7th- refurbish bicycles 

May 21st – Bikeathon! To raise money for the orphan’s school costs.

Please e-mail Ms. Heidi sheidi@aisch.org if you are interested. Fill out this form, get it signed, and turn it into Ms. Heidi (Room 2123) by Friday, April 15.

The AISC Chennai Flood Relief (see their Facebook page, or tell your parents) have created a donation system in which people have the ability to donate a variety of different products and/or goods to aid the people of Chennai in their fight for safety and shelter. We are currently asking for foods, clothes, sundries, and items such as blankets, sheets, and mats. We already have a total of 12 boxes around the school in which you can donate these items including the main reception, the elementary entrance, and the HS and MS cafeteria.

When considering items to donate, please keep in mind the quality in which you plan to give to our campaign. When donating clothes, make sure that they are culturally appropriate and are able to be used by children from 3 to 18. As well when donating food to keep all items in good quality. Thank you for supporting your community.
