For the month of December we decided to experiment with adding an extra day of “Refuerzo” or Tutoring in each neighborhood in response to parent suggestions during our latest round of evaluations. So far, it’s been a huge success!!
An extra day of tutoring means more time to dedicate the school subjects that our Scholars find difficult. Our “Ayudantes” or employees have been busy helping students review some tough material so that the next time they have exams they’re all set to get even better grades!

This has also allowed us more time for the group presentations on topics important to teens that we told you about in last week’s blog.

Since it’s December we’ve also used the time to bring some Christmas joy to our classroom space too – everything pictured below is hand-made by our Starfish Scholars!!
