It seems like human trafficking is starting to make its way into the headlines more each day. It’s been called “modern-day slavery.” The Honorable Zoe Bakoru-Bakoko has spent her life fighting for peace, and advocating for victims, and now you have an opportunity to hear more about why she does what she does on Thursday, March 28th at 7 p.m. at St. Matthew’s By the Sea UMC in Fenwick Island.
Teaching our kids to mind their manners doesn’t seem to be much of a priority for some parents, that’s why one program on Delmarva is working to change that. Response to Intervention Paraprofessional Lucy Dutton and Fourth-Grade Teacher Caitlin Prince of W. Reily Brown Elementary School, stopped by to tell us more about the “Manners in Motion” program. The program teaches students proper manners, such as how to properly sit at a table. For more information on how you can help this program succeed, call the school at 302-697-2101.
