A Singing Sharing
Many of the young women you supportrd last year are still meeting and learning. Two new young women joined the continuing students in 2013. The all still need your support.
At our July meeting, we tried a new technique. Mishel Cutzal, interning with the Kateri Fund to get some work experience, presented an entertainig way to share learning. The theme was Personal Hygiene. The young women were divided into groups. Each group was given part of an article on Personal Hygiene to read. The group was asked to report on what they had read using their creativity. Two groups reported with a song. Another presented a funny skit that was very entertaining. Mishel awarded points according to a scale that had been explained to the group at the beginning. They included smiles, level of participation, initiative, and creativity. There was a tie for first place with 95 points, so the two groups were declared the winners and will receive a prize at the meeting next month. Everyone enjoyed participating in a new way. In their individual interviews they shared the new things that they learned about personal hygiene and its importance in daily life.
Francisca Sirin is finishing up her student teaching and will graduate in October. She is very busy as she does her student teaching in the morning and is attending her own classes in the afternoon.
Silvia Sian Quiej also will graduate this year as a teacher. She is preparing her seminar presentation and then will do her student teaching. The last year of studies is always very demanding, but she expects all to go well.
Blanca Surec, Aura Curruchiche, Lily Garcia Alvarado, Reina Cuxil, Sandra Lopez Cotji, and Paula del Carmen Cali all have averages in the 80's. They are good students working hard to succeed.
Adela Surec is doing even better with an average of 91%. She wants to keep it above 90%. Her parents are very proud of her and are giving her the support that she needs to do well
Clara Ecomac To, Glenda Tum To, Barbara Tarton, and Marilena Patzan are all working hard to maintain their average of 70%.
The young women appreciate the confidence their supporters show in them. They often say that they do not want to let their supporters down and that it gives them an extra incentive to keep at their studies. Thank you for your past support. Think about giving again.
