We started this school year with a new member of our staff team, Rosa Ester Vásquez. Rosa is a fully qualified preschool teacher with a degree in Pedagogy and Educational Sciences, and a wealth of experience working with young children. Seño Rosy ("Miss Rosie") brings a great deal of positive energy and creative ideas to her work. Her warmth and enthusiasm inspire children to learn and she has become a very valued and reliable. member of our staff team!
Unfortunately, in Quetzaltenango, Covid numbers are high and schools are all closed. While the Acorn Childcare Center has not been able to open for in-person learning, the students have been very busy with remote learning! Teachers send daily instructional videos and parents pick up material kits to do the activities together at home.
Recently the students had a lot of fun with traditional activities for Carnaval, a holiday celebrated before the start of Lent. In Guatemala there is a tradition that children dress in costumes and fill empty egg shells with confetti and seal with tissue paper to be thrown at friends in this bright, colorful festive day!
