Hi Friends, I wish you all the best, full of peace and love. 

After many difficult years, life has given us back what is most valuable to us: our students, at last we are together in the classrooms, on the field, on the stage.
We are positive and receptive to the new opportunities offered to us, we have returned to our creative spaces where we contribute to the search for a better place for all, more just, egalitarian, fraternal, etc. Looking for our students to continue fulfilling their dreams, we are trying to fin more companiescontacting companies to ask for support to this great foundation

We have news!

Our main objective is always to seek funds to support our students to fulfill their dreams, a few weeks ago we had our annual race "The goal is education" where we had the support of hundreds of people contributing to the future of our country through education, there were two categories 5k and 10k, it was a wonderful event full of emotion and happiness, we were accompanied by our students and graduates being a fundamental part of this event.

The good news continues, we participated in an important educational event where our students presented entrepreneurship projects and were very excited with the results. 

Let's make sure that this year we continue to achieve goals and educate leaders.

I bid you a fond farewell.

Best regards our friends,

We started this year with a positive attitude and with all our efforts dedicated to maintaining our current projects.


The situation of the new variant of Covid 19, Omicron is escalating more and more people, our educational authorities are still deciding whether to return to the classroom or not.


For now we are awaiting any instruction and with all the availability to teach in an excellent way, regardless of the modality.

The challenge of online classes could be said to be mastered, last year's experience did not teach much.
However, we face new challenges such as the uncertainty of the face-to-face issue and the maintenance of the scholarships of some of our students. For this we are devising new fundraising projects in the USA and contacting companies to ask for support.

Something worth mentioning is that the state Judo competitions have already started. Our students have participated and have had very good results. These achievements are a sign of the effectiveness of the project.


Every year our students represent us and bring pride to the institution with their deportive achievements. This is thanks to you, our donors, because thanks to your continued belief in this project our students can continue to compete, winning medals, study and achieve their dreams.

Let's make sure that this year we continue to achieve and educate leaders.

I bid you a fond farewell.

Dear friends.

We are about to conclude this year, which represents the halfway point of the school year.
Last October we were able to celebrate our Day of the Dead festival at our Liebres, Tlajomulco and Preparatory campuses. These were festivals where we can appreciate the leadership of our students and how our values and life skills that we teach them materialize and work.


The members of the dance academy delighted us with their presentations where they demonstrate the value of excellence, the music students brought out their musical talents performing classic eve songs such as La Llorona, Amor Eterno, among other songs that require the value of discipline.


We were also able to see the growing creative formation and communication skills of several students when they read their "calaveritas literarias", a traditional Mexican composition in verse, in front of all their classmates, and the exhibition of catrinas and catrines where we saw a great effort in makeup and characterization that implies a strong commitment to the value of love for what they do.

Finally, these festivals ended with the Day of the Dead altar exhibitions, where the students were characterized as the commemorated character and their skills in public speaking, effective communication, discipline and responsibility were shown.

These types of annual recreational events allow us to qualitatively measure, on a small scale, the progress of leadership, creativity and intelligence in different areas of our students as well as the effectiveness of the values and skills of Lisi. Based on this, we can affirm that we are continuously achieving our objective, which is to form leaders in vulnerable communities.

As strategic achievements we have that in September we received our official validation of studies in our 3 campuses, which allows us to continue operating as an educational institution and shows that we are in line with the guidelines of our country.

Without further ado, I bid you a fond farewell.

Octavio Diaz.

Queridos amigos.

Ya estamos a punto de concluir este año que representa la mitad del ciclo escolar.
En el pasado mes de octubre pudimos celebrar nuestro festival del día de muertos en nuestros planteles de Liebres, Tlajomulco y Preparatoria, fueron festivales donde podemos apreciar el liderazgo de nuestros alumnos y como nuestros valores y habilidades para la vida que les enseñamos se materializan y funcionan

.
Los integrantes de la academia de danza nos deleitaron con sus presentaciones donde demuestran el valor de la excelencia, los alumnos de música sacaron a relucir sus dotes musicales interpretando temas clásicos de la víspera como La Llorona, Amor Eterno, entre otras canciones que requieren el valor de la disciplina.


También pudimos ver la creciente formación creativa y habilidad de comunicación de varios alumnos al leer ante todos los compañeros sus "calaveritas literarias" que son una composición en verso tradicional en México y la exposición de catrinas y catrines donde vimos un gran empeño en el maquillaje y caracterización que implica un fuerte compromiso con el valor del amor hacia lo que hacen.

Finalmente terminaron estos festivales con las exposiciones de altares del día de muertos, los alumnos estuvieron caracterizados del personaje conmemorado y sus habilidades de oratoria, comunicación efectiva, disciplina y responsabilidad fueron mostradas.

Este tipo de eventos recreativos anuales nos permite en pequeña escala medir cualitativa mente el avance del liderazgo, la creatividad y la inteligencia en distintos ámbitos de nuestros alumnos así como la efectividad de los valores y habilidades Lisi. En base a esto podemos afirmar que estamos continuamente logrando nuestro objetivo que es formar líderes en comunidades vulnerables.

Como logros estratégicos tenemos que en septiembre recibimos nuestros Refrendo de Validación Oficial de Estudios en nuestros 3 planteles, lo cual nos permite seguir operando como institución educativa y es muestra de que estamos en forma con los lineamientos de nuestro país.

Sin nada más por el momento me despido afectuosa mente.

Octavio Diaz.

Dear friends,

       For Lisi and Friends of Lisi these dates are very important, for schools and educational centers the school year begins in these months.

A year ago we thought we would be living a normal year and a normal time, but the new beginning continues with the same covid-19, but with new motivations, new experiences and new skills in both our teachers and our students.

We begin this school year with recharged energy, with many illusions and now with 800 students.

The school authorities have allowed us to work with 50% of the students, a situation that makes us very happy, because the classrooms are alive again thanks to the students who are the ones who illuminate our institute.

The slight increase in the number of students represents a greater commitment to each family and each member of the community where our LISI Institutes are located.

Thank you very much for supporting education.


Rafael Ortiz.

 


Queridos amigos, 

       Para Lisi y para Friends of Lisi estas fechas son muy importantes, para las escuelas y centros educativos el ciclo escolar comienza en estos meses.

Hace un año pensábamos que ya estaríamos viviendo un año y una época normal, pero el nuevo comenzar continua con el mismo covid-19, pero con nuevas motivaciones, nuevas experiencias y nuevas habilidades tanto en nuestros maestros como en nuestros alumnos.

Comenzamos este ciclo escolar con energías recargadas, con muchas ilusiones y ahora con 800 alumnos.

Las autoridades escolares han permitido trabajar con el 50% de los alumnos, situación que nos pone muy felices, pues las aulas vuelven a tener vida gracias a los estudiantes que son quienes iluminan a nuestro instituto.

El aumentar un poco la cantidad de alumnos representa un mayor compromiso con cada familia y cada miembro de la comunidad donde están nuestros Institutos LISI.

Muchas gracias por apoyar la educación.

Dear Friends:

It is a pleasure and a responsibility to tell you that the year 2020 was hard for the institute, we put everything on our side for the project and the education of our students, hours, work, research, disposition, everything was put in the balance, fortunately we came out ahead and all thanks to the joint effort between you donors who do not leave your commitment to this great project and us as an institution.

As for our achievements, I can say with confidence and pride that now, February 2021:
-The institute is progressively adapting to the new reality hand in hand with our students, becoming more and more expert in the online modality.
-Digital literacy, we have made a great leap in the digitalization of education by including digital tools in our model and in fact we are still looking for ways to solve the situation of some students who cannot have virtual classes due to their lack of access to the Internet, computers and other digital tools.
-We have maintained our commitment to not allow school dropouts, our 715 students continue to receive 100% scholarships and despite the difficulty of covering the scholarships, fortunately we are still standing and we continue to provide education.

We currently have 715 students who remain in virtual mode who like us and you remain committed to their education despite the difficulties, learning something new every day and new ways of learning. It should be noted that there were no pastorelas, nor any other kind of massive or face-to-face events with the students.

Without further ado, my friends, I bid you farewell.

 

 

Es un placer y una responsabilidad decirles que el año 2020 fue duro para el instituto, pusimos todo de nuestra parte por el proyecto y la educación de nuestros estudiante, horas, trabajo, investigación, disposición, todo se puso en la balanza, afortunadamente salimos adelante y todo gracias al esfuerzo conjunto entre ustedes donadores que no dejan tu compromiso con este gran proyecto y nosotros como institución.

En cuanto a nuestros logro puedo decir con seguridad y orgullo que ahora, febrero del 2021:
-El instituto esta progresivamente adaptándose a la nueva realidad de la mano de nuestros alumnos, cada vez haciéndonos más expertos en la modalidad en línea.
-La alfabetización digital, hemos dado un gran salto en la digitalización de la educación al haber incluido herramientas digitales a nuestro modelo y de hecho seguimos buscando como resolver la situación de algunos alumnos que no pueden tener clases virtuales debido a su falta de acceso a Internet, computadoras y otras herramientas digitales.
-Hemos mantenido a nuestro compromiso en no permitir la deserción escolar, nuestros 715 alumnos siguen becados al 100% y a pesar de la dificultad de cubrir las becas, afortunadamente seguimos en pie y seguimos otorgándose educación.

Actualmente tenemos 715 alumnos que permanecen en modalidad virtual los cuales al igual que nosotros y ustedes siguen comprometidos con su educación a pesar de las dificultades, aprendiendo cada día algo nuevo y nuevas formas de aprender. Cabe señalar que no se realizaron pastorelas, ni ninguna otra clase de eventos masivos o presenciales con los alumnos.

Sin más por el momento me despido amigos.
