1,000 cranes

1,000 cranes folded in love

1,000 cranesThe Miller Grove 6th grade World History class is currently studying the continent of Asia.  In Asia,  origami cranes have become a symbol of hope and healing and traditionally it is believed that if you fold 1,000 origami cranes your wish will come true.  The students, under the direction of their teacher, Rolanda Hasten, decided to turn this tradition into a service learning project.  The class folded 1,000 origami cranes and students at the elementary “adopted the cranes” to raise money for a fellow student who has experienced substantial medical issues this school year.  The cranes have the name of each person who adopted them written on the bottom and are hanging in the library as a symbol of hope and healing for their fellow Hornet!
