February 4 - February 8

We hope you enjoyed your weekend! We have many exciting events for this week, so please read everything below!

This month your child will have the opportunity to purchase books through the International Scholastic Book Clubs. This is an optional activity offered by the school, in case you want to motivate your child to read at home and to increase their own library. With you purchase, our library will accumulate points to redeem for more books for the benefit of you children in our school. The due date to purchase the books online is February 8th The books will arrive to the school in one single delivery, and we will distribute them to the students according to their orders, approximately three weeks after the purchase due date. 

This Friday February 8th, Early Childhood will be going on a fieldtrip to AGAFAM. We will leave school at 8:00 a.m. and be back by 11:00 a.m. Permission slips went home on Friday. Please fill it out and send 100 Lempiras. This fee will cover transportation and a snack.

As Valentine´s Day is around the corner, we are requesting you to help your child decorate a shoe box to be used as their mailbox. Be creative, and let your child brainstorm the ideas that he/she would like their box to look like. We are going to display all these lovely mailboxes on Thursday, February 14th for your child to deliver their valentine cards for their friends. This is a voluntary activity. However, if you decide to participate, the only request that we have is that the students should bring one card or treat to each one of the First Grade students. This mailbox should be in school on Wednesday, February 13th.
