ALPHARETTA, Ga. – Joana Seawel’s kindergarten class at Manning Oaks Elementary in Alpharetta has become pen pals with a kindergarten class in Costa Rica.

“We are becoming globally minded citizens with a curiosity and appreciation for other cultures,” said Seawel.

In addition to writing letters back and forth, the kindergarten class also used Skype to connect with their pen pal class in Costa Rica.

The pen pals in Costa Rica received a package April 18 with letters about the animals and habitats Seawel’s students have been learning about in science. After visiting via Skype, students from both countries decided they wanted to write letters about their own superheroes and how they are leaders.
