According to an ancient Japanese tradition, an individual who folds 1,000 cranes will be granted a wish, such as longevity or healing.
Junior Wilfredo Escobar, who is currently battling cancer in a local hospital, is making origami paper cranes to reach his goal of 1,000 so that he may be granted his wish–to be free from cancer. In a show of love and support, BHS has joined in his efforts, as have students and faculty at other district schools.
Origami paper and instructionsare available for BHS students and staff in the library throughout the day and outside the cafeteria during both lunches. Please consider writing Wilfredo a personal message or wish on your cranes. Need tips on folding your crane? Stop on by the library.
