Cerramos con mucha satisfacción un año escolar difícil donde la ausencia en las aulas y la educación a distancia fueron denominadores comunes a nivel mundial. Pero más del 90% de nuestros niños regresaron a las escuela, llenaron nuestros salones y reciben los beneficios de una alimentación balanceada y los cuidados de salud elementales para cualquier ser humano. 

Durante el año escolar 2021-2022 los alumnos de la U.E. Jenaro Aguirre recibieron clases de manera virtual hasta el mes de abril, cuando paulatinamente y con todas las medidas de bioseguridad se reintegraron a las aulas de clase  En todo momento, la Fundación Madre María Luisa Casar estuvo al lado de la comunidad del 24, familias y docentes  que integran nuestra escuela, para llevar a cabo  con éxito el regreso de los alumnos  a sus actividades curriculares.

La Fundación Madre María Luisa Casar destinó recursos importantes para las nuevas estrategias de alimentación que implementó  el equipo encargado del comedor escolar, continuando así con nuestro programa nutricional, a pesar de las restricciones impuestas por la pandemia. Una vez que los niños  y personal docente se reintegraron a las aulas, el comedor escolar continuó trabajando para ofrecerles un desayuno ligero y un almuerzo balanceado.

El Ambulatorio María Luisa Casar se mantuvo abierto durante todo el año escolar, a pesar de que la escuela estuvo cerrada hasta el mes de abril. Allí se atendió no solo a los alumnos de la U.E. Jenaro Aguirre, sino a sus familias y a todas las personas de la comunidad que requirieron atención médica. Durante los meses de pandemia desde el Ambulatorio, se organizaron jornadas médicas para las personas del Barrio 24 de Marzo.

A partir del mes de abril la UE Jenaro Aguirre reactivó todas las actividades regulares y extra-curriculares, así como los proyectos complementarios que la Fundación MMLC lleva adelante en la comunidad del 24 de Marzo en Petare, permitiendo a todos los alumnos y sus familias retornar a la cotidianidad interrumpida por la pandemia Covid-19.

Cumplimos 25 años de trabajo y crecimiento sostenido; son 25 años donde cada alumno es un propósito de éxito y ustedes forman parte de este equipo. Sin su ayuda, estos proyectos educativos que generan cambios y propician avances en nuestra sociedad, serían imposibles. 

Nuestro compromiso es continuar trabajando con excelencia para seguir generando cambios positivos para nuestros niños; para formar ciudadanos conscientes  Por eso necesitamos de su generoso aporte para que  nuestra escuela Jenaro Aguirre Elorriaga, siga siendo referente para nuestra promociones de egresados, sus familias y las generaciones por venir, porque si queremos adultos íntegros y sanos, no les podemos escamotear en su niñez  educación, salud y alimentación, derechos fundamentales de cualquier ser humano.

We concluded with great satisfaction a challenging school year in which classroom absences and distance learning were commonplace worldwide. But more than 90% of our children returned to school, filled our classrooms and received the benefits of a balanced diet and basic health care for any human being. 

During the 2021-2022 school year, the students of U.E. Jenaro Aguirre received virtual classes until April, when gradually and with all the biosecurity measures, they returned to the classrooms. At all times, the Madre María Luisa Casar Foundation was at the community of the 24’s side, supporting the families and teachers who make up our school, to successfully carry out the return of students to their curricular activities.

The Madre María Luisa Casar Foundation allocated significant resources for the new feeding strategies implemented by the team in charge of the school canteen, thus continuing with our nutritional program, despite the restrictions imposed by the pandemic. Once the children and teaching staff returned to the classrooms, the school canteen continued working to offer them a light breakfast and a balanced lunch.

The María Luisa Casar Outpatient Clinic remained open throughout the school year, even though the school was closed until April. There, not just the students of the Jenaro Aguirre School were seen, but also their families and all the people of the community who required medical attention. During the months of the pandemic, the Outpatient Clinic organized health fairs for the people of Barrio 24 de Marzo.

Starting in April, the UE Jenaro Aguirre reactivated all its regular and extra-curricular activities, as well as the complementary projects that the MMLC Foundation carries out in the community of 24 de Marzo in Petare, allowing all students and their families to return to their daily routine, interrupted by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are celebrating 25 years of work and sustained growth; 25 years where each student is a purpose of success and you are part of this team. Without your help, these educational projects that generate change and promote progress in our society would be impossible. 

Our commitment is to continue working with excellence to continue generating positive changes for our children; to form conscious citizens. That is why we need your generous contribution so that our Jenaro Aguirre Elorriaga school continues to be a reference for our graduating classes, their families and the generations to come, because if we want healthy and integral adults, we cannot deny them education, health and nutrition, fundamental rights of any human being in their childhood.

¡Que alegría volver a ver a todos nuestros alumnos entrando felices por la puerta del Jenaro en su primer día de clases 2022/2023!

Finalmente podrán asistir de lunes a viernes, en su horario habitual de 7:00 am a 12:00pm. Las docentes y auxiliares, inspiradas en lo maravilloso que puede ser este nuevo año escolar, adornaron las aulas con coloridos carteles de bienvenida.

Luego de casi dos años de educación a distancia, podemos reunirnos en el salón de usos múltiples, entonar el Himno Nacional, rezarle a La Virgen María, darle gracias por un nuevo comienzo. Acto seguido, los alumnos suben en silencio a sus aulas y comienzan las actividades académicas programadas.

En ese momento, el salón de usos múltiples se va convirtiendo poco a poco en el comedor escolar, nuestro personal va colocando mesas, sillas, cubiertos, servilletas, y espera en silencio a que los niños de preescolar bajen a recibir su nutritivo y rico almuerzo, que desde muy temprano las señoras de la cocina han preparado.

Así van bajando a almorzar, a partir de las 11:00, por grupos, los más pequeños primero, hasta llegar a los grandes de la escuela, los niños de 6to grado.

Mientras los niños están en sus aulas, las señoras de la cocina están preparando el almuerzo programado para ese día, en el Ambulatorio Médico María Luisa Casar, los médicos van recibiendo a sus pacientes, personas de la comunidad que necesitan atención médica primaria. Los lunes, se llena de niños y bebes el consultorio de Vero, nuestra pediatra, miércoles y jueves Luis, recibe a las embarazadas, y Naileth, todos los días atiende en medicina general. Finalmente, termina la mañana, todo el personal del Ambulatorio disfruta del almuerzo del día, y culminan la jornada.

Y así, día a día el Jenaro abre sus puertas a la comunidad del Barrio 24 de marzo, para atender a los niños brindándoles educación, alimentación y salud, preparándolos para un futuro lleno de oportunidades.

What a joy to see all our students happily walking through the Jenaro's door on their first day of school 2022/2023!

They will finally be able to attend Monday through Friday, in their usual schedule from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm. The teachers and aides, inspired by how wonderful this new school year will be, decorated the classrooms with colorful welcome posters.

After almost two years of distance learning, we can gather in the multipurpose room, sing the National Anthem, pray to the Virgin Mary, and thank her for a new beginning. Then, the students quietly go up to their classrooms and begin the scheduled academic activities.

At that moment, the multipurpose room gradually becomes the school dining room, our staff sets up tables, chairs, silverware, napkins, and waits in silence for the preschool children to come down to receive their nutritious and tasty lunch, which the ladies in the kitchen have been preparing since very early in the morning.

So they go down to lunch, starting at 11:00, in groups, the youngest first, until they reach the oldest kids of the school, the 6th graders.

While the children are in their classrooms, the ladies in charge of the kitchen are preparing the lunch scheduled for that day, at the Maria Luisa Casar Medical Clinic, the doctors are attending to their patients, people from the community who need primary medical attention. On Mondays, Vero, our pediatrician, fills her office with children and babies; on Wednesdays and Thursdays, Luis receives pregnant women; and Naileth, every day she attends to general medicine. Finally, at the end of the morning, all the Medical Clinic staff enjoys the lunch of the day, and the day ends.

And so, day by day Jenaro opens its doors to the community of Barrio 24 de Marzo, to serve the children, providing them with education, food and health, preparing them for a future full of opportunities.

Queremos compartir con ustedes la emoción del aniversario número 25 de la Fundación Madre María Luisa Casar, el cual celebramos el sábado 2 de Julio en el auditorio del Colegio Cristo Rey de Altamira.

Aliados y benefactores nos acompañaron a festejar de la mano de la Coral Núcleo Pequeños Cantores de la Schola Jenaro Aguirre la cual estuvo acompañada de los núcleos: Altagracia, Caicagüita y Chacao. Videos de las alumnas de Colegio Cristo Rey, anécdotas de cada uno de los 3 pilares que conforman la fundación: educación, alimentación y salud, palabras de la Madre María Luisa Casar fueron parte de lo que ocurrió ese día, el cual finalizo con un pequeño brindis.

Este evento fue un homenaje a todos los que han hecho posible esta historia.

Ya son 25 años de ayudar a cientos de familias. Son 25 años que cuentan la historia de cómo la Madre María Luisa pasó…DEL AMOR A LA ACCIÓN.

A continuación, compartimos unas sentidas palabras expresadas el día del evento por nuestra asesora Marisela H:

     “Agradecer 25 años en una hora no es fácil

     Por eso les pido que hagamos un ejercicio de imaginación: Piensen por un momento que no existen las notas musicales ¿Qué sentido tendría la existencia de una coral?

      Ahora imaginen que cada uno representan una de esas notas que juntas constituyen la melodía que mueve a la escuela y la Fundación.

    Son ustedes quienes nos ayudan a crear la belleza a través de la armonía, a descubrir lo sublime dentro del caos; les dan a nuestros niños estructura, compromiso, disciplina, para descubrir su interior y crecer como seres humanos íntegros… ustedes representan esas notas que le dan sustento a toda una sinfonía, o a toda una vida. 

      Si ustedes faltan, la composición podría desafinar; estaría incompleta

     En nombre de Las esclavas de Cristo Rey, la Fundación Madre Maria Luisa Casar, La escuela Jenaro Aguirre y toda la comunidad del 24 de Marzo en Petare, GRACIAS, porque representan ese amor; energía creadora que transforma y les muestra a nuestros niños ese camino de vida con una promesa de superación, con la certeza de formar ciudadanos conscientes, respetuosos de sí mismos, de su entorno y de nuestro país Venezuela.”

We want to share with you the excitement of the 25th anniversary of the Madre Maria Luisa Casar Foundation, which we celebrated on Saturday, July 2 in the auditorium of the Cristo Rey School in Altamira.

Allies and benefactors joined us to celebrate with the Choir Núcleo Pequeños Cantores de la Schola Jenaro Aguirre which was accompanied by the following choirs: Altagracia, Caicagüita and Chacao.  Some of the highlights of the day were the following: Showings of videos of the students of Colegio Cristo Rey, anecdotes of each of the 3 pillars that make up the foundation: Education, Nutrition and Health and words from Madre Maria Luisa Casar, ending with a small toast.

This event was a tribute to all those who have made this story possible.

It has been 25 years of helping hundreds of families. 25 years that tell the story of how Madre Maria Luisa went...FROM LOVE TO ACTION.

Below, we share some heartfelt words expressed on the day of the event by our advisor Marisela H:

      "Giving thanks for 25 years in one hour is not easy.

     That is why I ask you to do an exercise of the imagination: Think for a moment that musical notes do not exist, what sense would there be for the existence of a choir?

      Now, imagine that each one of you represents one of those notes that together create the melody that moves the School and the Foundation.

    You are the ones who help us create beauty through harmony, to discover the sublime within chaos. You give our children the structure, commitment and discipline, to discover their inner self and grow as whole human beings... you represent those notes that give sustenance to a whole symphony, or a whole life. 

      If you are missing, the composition could be out of tune; it would be incomplete.

     On behalf of the order Esclavas de Cristo Rey, the Madre María Luisa Casar Foundation, the Jenaro Aguirre School and the entire community of 24 de Marzo in Petare, THANK YOU, because you represent that love and creative energy that transforms and shows our children that path of life with a promise of improvement, with the certainty of forming conscious citizens, respectful of themselves, of their environment and of our country Venezuela".

      Dos años después del inicio de la pandemia provocada por el Covid 19, el comedor de nuestra escuela Jenaro Aguirre, nuevamente abrió sus puertas para recibir a sus 400 alumnos ofreciéndoles de esta manera la merienda y el almuerzo balanceado al que estaban acostumbrados.

     A lo largo de estos dos años la alimentación de nuestros niños nunca se detuvo; implementamos un sistema para la entrega de bolsas en sus hogares, con comida saludable y balanceada. Gracias al reinicio de las actividades presenciales en el Jenaro, nuestros alumnos ahora reciben una merienda nutritiva a media mañana y un almuerzo balanceado al finalizar la jornada escolar. Estas dos comidas nos permiten garantizar el 50% de los requerimientos nutricionales diarios que necesitan para su sano desarrollo físico y un optimo rendimiento académico.

     Sin descuidar las medidas de bioseguridad, el personal de la cocina prepara diariamente las comidas, vigilando el manejo adecuado de los alimentos para asegurar la higiene en todo el proceso.

     Uno de los objetivos de la FMMLC es que los niños adquieran hábitos alimenticios saludables a través de la educación. Es por ello que para quienes trabajamos en  la escuela Jenaro Aguirre juega un rol fundamental la promoción y aplicación de programas nutricionales que logren modificar conductas alimentarias erróneas; en este  trabajo de formación también incluimos a los representantes.  Nuestro lema: “Educar y prevenir es curar en salud”.

      Para todos nosotros, ver la emoción de nuestros niños al reencontrarse con sus compañeros de clases; sentir que la actividad vuelve a nuestro comedor, dándonos la oportunidad de servirles cada día  un rico y saludable almuerzo en la escuela, en fin, ser testigos de su  sano crecimiento físico e intelectual,  nos llena de entusiasmo para seguir trabajando por ellos y así brindarles un futuro promisorio lleno de oportunidades.

      Two years after the beginning of the pandemic caused by Covid 19, the dining room of our Jenaro Aguirre school reopened its doors to receive its 400 students, offering them the snacks and balanced meals they were used to.

     Throughout these two years, we never stopped feeding the children. We implemented a system for the delivery of bags to their homes, with healthy and balanced food. Thanks to the restart of in-person activities at Jenaro, our students now receive a nutritious mid-morning snack and a balanced lunch at the end of the school day. These two meals allow us to guarantee 50% of the daily nutritional requirements they need for their healthy physical development and optimal academic performance.

     Without neglecting biosecurity measures, the kitchen staff prepares meals daily, monitoring the proper handling of food to ensure hygiene throughout the process.

     One of the FMMLC's objectives is for children to acquire healthy eating habits through education. That is why for those of us who work at the Jenaro Aguirre School, the promotion and development of nutritional programs that manage to modify disordered eating habits plays a fundamental role; in this training work we also include the children's parents or guardians.  Our motto : "To educate and prevent is to cure in  health".

      For all of us, seeing the excitement of our children when they meet their classmates again; feeling that the activity returns to our dining room, giving us the opportunity to serve them every day a delicious and healthy lunch at school, in short, witnessing their healthy physical and intellectual growth, fills us with enthusiasm to continue working for them and thus provide them with a promising future full of opportunities.
