Adjusting to a New Normal

Students Connect Online

Ecuador has been on strict lockdown since March 16, meaning that for two months now all of our students, parents, teachers, and administrators have been working from home. After a hustle to rearrange our lives, we are pumped and ready to start our new school year on June 1st. Our students are already communicating with teachers using Microsoft Teams and WhatsApp. And we are lucky to say that we have found scholarships for over 25 students! We are so grateful to have such strong support! 

Obviously, all of this means that our Environmental Education Program will change a lot. In addition to their normal school work, students will have one lesson a week online in environemntal studies. To guide us through an online curriculum, we will use TedEd Earth School. Here, we find many short and interesting videos that our students can reflect upon. Although many of our planned projects and excursions would have been more fun with their classmates, students can still plant seeds at home, separate their garbage, or make compost. Things likely won't go back to how they were, so even our Environmental Education Program will adjust to the new normal. 

Coming up soon will be our Virtual Bingo Game! Buy your bingo cards now! On June 6th at 1:00 PM Ecuador time we will live stream the game on the school's Facebook page. All the proceeds will go towards paying our teachers and keeping the school open through this crisis. Bingo cards are $5 for 1 or 3 for $10. You can buy your cards here on GlobalGiving or through the PayPal account on our website.

Thank you so much!
