Guo Jin received a CLP grant to help her start a sister city project between her host school and home school. The sister city project built upon the success of the Chinese Club at Suder Montessori Magnet School by allowing access to Chinese language and culture with more students. The grant was used to obtain Chinese resources for the students to have more firsthand contact with China. The resources included primary sources like books and newspapers, in addition to tools to support students with Chinese cooking, art, dance costumes, and field trips. Students were ultimately able to fundraise a trip to China during April vacation to meet students from Guo Jin’s home school, Deyang NO.5 Middle School, located in Jingyang, Deyang, Sichuan China. A follow up trip of Chinese students to Guo Jin’s U.S. host school was also planned to take place in October 2019.
