We are inviting all of the families in our homsechool cooperative and the members of the Boys and Girls Club where we meet weekly to add to our Roots and Shoots "Making a Difference" chain. It is Roots and Shoots goal to do things that support our human community, the animal community and the environment. Each time anyone participates in an activity that accomplishes one of those goals we are going to invite them to add it to our chain. It is a good way to see how every individual makes a difference. We are going to display the completed chain at our showcase at the end of this semester.

ECMS-Inglewood Green Ambassador program will connect students to their community through the cultivating of a community vegetable garden. Over the course of the spring, students in their classes, will plan, cultivate, maintain, and curate the garden, and the harvest will be shared with community, both within and outside of the school, at a fall harvest-environmental festival. At this festival, students will give harvested food away to parents as well as local neighbors. They will grow seedlings and teach families how to plant and grow their own home gardens. Throughout the spring, volunteer guest speakers will work with students to understand and analyze food-related issues facing urban communities.

Our project will bring happiness and joy to the children. We plan on designing our own unique 55mm badges that will say 'Bersama Mu' which translates to 'We Are With You' in the Malaysian Language. We will print them out and put them on the soft toys and pencil cases. We have written this so that we could bring hope and to encourage them to rebuild their lives. After collecting the toys, we will be sending them off in March 2015.

My son volunteers once a week to play the piano. He has developed a loyal following of residents whom he considers his fans. He looks forward to going each week and dresses up nicely for each performance. He is encouraging his sister (who plays violin) to join him, but thus far she is too apprehensive believing she isn't good enough. This opportunity has thereby provided more than we expected as it is building his self confidence and his role as a mentor to other young musicians.
