This week, to mix things up a bit, the sisters all met on the Castilleja campus. Down in the Bourne Lab, big sisters helped clear up the mysterious ways of the brain. Then, we split into groups to write iPad books on everything we had been taught. From learning about the cerebellum to the spinal cord, we all learned something new. Finally, we had a chance to practice our public speaking skills as we showed our new books to the entire group. With both Halford sisters and Castilleja’s STEMx club present, it was quite a crowd. We had so much fun and who knows, maybe there’s a new neuroscientist in our midst!
Months and months of preparation and excitement finally came together in the best Castilleja arts show yet! Arts with a Heart: The Future’s So Bright was a success by any standards. Halford sisters big and small put on three stellar sold-out performances. Decked out in colorful costumes, the girls danced and sang beneath bright stage lights. Each girl inspired the audience and everybody’s hard work helped to raise crucial funds for Building Futures Now. With these donations this organization will continue to thrive, providing opportunities for these girls and making the futures truly bright.
