Dates, who has visited Ercole's class several times over the past few years, held a second session targeted to students in seventh and eighth grade focusing on the changes at the Jambo Jipya School since she had last spoken with these students when they were in fifth grade. Dates closed out her presentations by highlighting "our likeness and differences" and sharing a special song written by one of the Jambo Jipya students and performed by that student and Keela's brother, C. J. Dates:
Wherever you may go/Life is good/You can shine like the sun/Run like the rain/Sail like the stars/Despite all your pain.
Ercole's class will hold "Spell-a-thon" in the spring to raise money for the Jambo Jipya School. For more information on the Jambo Jipya School, go to reason2smile.org.
