- Inspired by security guards Maurice Bonhomme and Jean Cayemitte's support of St. Joseph School in their Haitian hometown of Petit-Goave, Northfield faculty and staff had planned to launch the Haiti Project this March to help the school.
Sadly, Petit-Goave has been destroyed, and St. Joseph School is no longer standing. Now the focus of New Trier's fund-raising and service learning project will be on earthquake relief for Petit-Goave, located just five miles from the earthquake's epicenter. New Trier has partnered with a local nonprofit, Little by Little, a 501 (c) 3 organization that provides aid and support to communities in Haiti. Donations are being accepted through a special Haiti Project Web site, www.newtrier.k12.il.us/haitiproject.aspx.
Tickets are on sale now for New Trier's Turnabout Dance, "Rendezvous in Rio," which will take place Feb. 20on the Winnetka Campus.
