What a beautiful day we had at the Heifer
Global Village!
Focusing on the Guatemalan village was a great way to start off Hispanic Heritage Month and our unit Roots: How our cultural "roots" influence who we are.  Whether Guatemalan, Salvadorian, Filipino, Ethiopian, Cameroonian, etc. we can learn a lot about our own culture and the culture of others by looking at how a culture's beliefs and values can be shown through its housing, games, food and food preparation, music, etc.  I personally enjoyed seeing what serious chefs many of us are and how the older students are already big sisters for the younger students.  It was great seeing everyone work together in such a positive and productive way! =)

Thanks for everyone who came out to Family Night!
There was a GREAT turnout of parents, students, former students, teachers, and little ones.  =) We are truly a family.
Congratulations to Kiana, Oscar, Karen, Vanessa, Nanci, and Eleni who earned awards for their great academic performance in the 2011-2012 school year.
Thank you Daisy, Asenat, and Natna for running our daycare.   I appreciate everyone's help after school to set up for this spectacular event.
Thank you parents for coming after a long day at work.  We truly hope you had a great time, and we look forward to seeing you again.
