Green Lake Elementary School students make dresses for Ugandan orphans

Students at Green Lake Elementary School (2400 N 65th St) recently made dresses for orphaned Ugandan girls. The project was headed up by Kate Sipe, the school’s PE and Swimming Teacher. When Ms. Sipe’s mother passed away, she left a large collection of fabric. The dresses were made from the fabric in her honor. Trina Gadsden, Executive Director of Sister Schools, distributed the dresses to girls at an orphanage in Kampala, Uganda. “When the girls put [the dresses] on, their faces and sparkle in their eyes could light the sky, they were so happy,” Gadsden writes. You can read more about Gadsden’s visit to the orphanage here,…
