Winter Practice Giving Challenge 2018

Each December we challenge our students to track the number of days they do both listening and practice. They keep track on a chart that creates a ladder, one side of the ladder is listening, the other is practice. Each day they do both practice and listening they create a rung that takes them higher!
Our studio gives a donation gift to Plan Canada based on the number of rungs generated by the students. This year it was planting trees around schools. Plan Canada says “Planted around the perimeter of school yards, these trees create a living fence for school children. They provide protection and shade, creating beautiful places to play and helping to make schools safer for thousands of girls and boys. Help a thriving, growing legacy take root.”
The challenge was we would donate 1 tree for every 50 rungs.
This December our students tracked their listening and practice for about 3 weeks.  In those few weeks they listened and practiced for a combined total of 406 days and we donated 8 trees.
Thanks you also to the Dong family who added to our studio donation by giving a gift of Medicine for Moms and Babies.
