Operation Cooperation

In United States of America by zeinab



Operation Cooperation brings together third grade students and their teachers and parents from four different religious schools in west St. Louis County: Al-Manara Academy (Muslim), St. Monica Catholic School, Kirk Day School (Christian) and Mirowitz. The program hopes to break down barriers by encouraging the children to play problem-solving games collaboratively. They meet at four workshops a year and enjoy snacks at “get-to-know-you” periods. The four schools take turns hosting the events. Last Thursday, Mirowitz hosted one of the workshops for their Christian and Muslim friends — about 100 third graders in all. The school lunchroom was filled with tables and pint-sized chairs for the kids’ important work.
