Good Day to You, the Supporters of Ocean Academy High School.
It is only through the assistance of good people like yourselves that Ocean Academy Students are able to continue to grow and to learn with a wide variety of activities that serves not just their academic education, but also their physical and emotional well being.
We would also like to thank those who were able to visit Caye Caulker and to bring supplies from the US. Many of these supplies are very expensive here in Belize, not to mention that they are difficult or impossible to find. Your gifts allow our students and teachers to expand their learning and teaching methods. The link to our wish lists is near the bottom of this email. If you are not able to visit Caye Caulker Ocean Academy, message Mrs. Penny Williams to see how you can still help. (Williams.Penny@oaseatide.com)
