Buy an ASV Bag for a Kapita School Student

This month we are getting ready for Mr. Gilbert Mwale, Director of Kapita School's visit to ASV December 2-11. When he leaves Valencia to go home to Zambia we would like to give him ASV bags for books so that he can give one to each of the Kapita students when he returns to his school. Our Elementary Student Council is selling the bags for just 2 euros (cost price) during the month of November and if your child would like to buy a bag for a Kapita student he or she can write a personal note to put inside the bag.

Our goal is to sell 350 bags so each student at Kapita can have an American School of Valencia small school bag. This is not a fundraiser, we will make no money off of these sales, but we would love to be able to provide each Kapita student with his or her own small school bag, with a special note inside from one of our ASV students.

Thank you for your continuing support!
