Please share your thoughts about the Ugandan Global Project and I will include them in the presentation!


  1. @ Mrs. Yollis,

    I am very excited to be at the presentation. Will any other people be there? I am very happy that we started the Ugandan Global Project because we have had so many experiences such as, the three mile walk, as well as watching a video of everyone else walk.


  2. Dear Mrs Yollis,

    Congratulations on being accepted into the conference.

    It's so great that you are willing to share your experiences with others.I hope it will inspire others to get involved in great projects like the UGP.

    I look forward to joining you online.

    It will be 4pm Thursday for you and 11am Friday for me!

    Your friend,
    Miss McGeady

  8. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    This is Marty (Adia's dad). Our family is definitely going to be at the presentation.

    I wish you the best of luck. It is great that you started the Ugandan Global Project.

    When I was little, it was my dream to have a chance to communicate with practically the world.

    Now that Adia is in your class, I can finally get to communicate with the world.

    I love being involved and hope to visit this blog again soon.

    Marty (Adia's dad)

  9. Dear Mrs. Yollis,

    I loved being able to go on the special room. It was very cool. My mom had a blast watching it.
    You did a great job doing the presentation. I love blogging and I know that my mom does too. I'm happy to help the Uganda students
    try to help get a place for them to play on. I also can not belive
    that we raised over 20.000 dollers.
    I have a question for you:
    Have you ever done a presentation in a visual room?

    Alexa (mrs. Yollis' student)
