We hope you enjoyed your Thanksgiving weekend!

Don't forget to send in your 5lbs of sugar. These food items are part of the Christmas food baskets given to our support staff.

Songfest will shortly be upon us. The students will perform a Guillermo Anderson song called “El Jardin”. For Songfest, the girls must wear green or brown clothes. The flowers are going to be done in school. Our only boy will be performing as a gardener so he must come dressed as one.
Date, Time and Location – Our Songfest this year will take place in MACC - on Friday, December 9 at 6:00 p.m. A map will be sent to your email with specific directions on how to get there. This day we will be releasing our students at 11: 45 a.m. so our teachers and music department can transport all the necessary instruments and do the appropriate set up for the event.
Performances and Parent Collaboration – Parents are asked to cooperate with our Song Fest in making sure their students are dressed properly for their presentations, and making sure the students are at the venue no later that 5:30 p.m. Please note the descriptions below.

The gift should not be more that 200 Lps. Please bring the gift wrapped and labeled with your child´s name as soon as possible. Please do not show your child the gift since we want this to be a surprise for them.

Our annual Christmas bazaar is taking soon! For additional information if you´d like to participate send an email to

Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas. In the main office, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes and socks. 
Purchase the new items and return  to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Rm. 7) by Wednesday, December 7th, unwrapped, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!
