Grade 2/3 students from Canyon-Lister Elementary School joined their Chilean buddy class at Santiago’s School No. 121, the former school of CLES principal David Falconer, via Skype to sing John Lennon’s Imagine at one of Monday’s Focus on Youth concerts at Prince Charles Theatre.

Between CLES and Erickson Elementary School, where Falconer used to be principal, students have raised $10,000 for the underprivileged Chilean school.
