A big hello to you all from summer in Guatemala!
Our school, La Academia, which is now coming up on its first anniversary has reopened after the Holidays.
In addtion to the English, Spanish, Psychology, Critical-Thinking and Homework Study classes, we have added to the schedule new classes in English for 5th and 6th graders, and additional classes on Tuesday and Thursdays for our Critical-Thinking students, and a study class on Wednesday of Eckhart Tolle's book, Stillness Speaks, in English for our Teachers-in-Training. There is also new yoga classes and breakout groups for the both the girls and the boys!
So, many new things at La Academia this year!
And much of this is due to the addition of an wonderful, dynamic new volunteer, Sunny Rucker, who originally came just to continue the English classes with our Teachers-in-Training but after a few meetings with Mick Quinn, one of the co-founders, she came up with the idea of adding this whole new array of new classes.
From all accounts, Sunny and our staff, students and ourselves, are really loving it!!
With your help in funding our school, we hope to continue this success throughout the year.
Thank you again for all your help and encouragement,
Mick Quinn and Debora Prieto
