This year, at the request of students and parents alike, Starfish held its first ever “Vacacionales”, like sending kids to day camp in the U.S.

Building off of the week of activities during the shorter October break, we spent every day for 2 weeks doing new team-building activities, integrating our morning and afternoon groups, cleaning up and decorating our space, increasing our creativity and having lots of fun with various games and sports. We also had the chance to learn a few new things – like baking cake and cookies, how to make bracelets, how to take care of ourselves, and much more. Overall, it was two weeks full of fun we wish could go on forever!
In the weeks that followed day camp, we finished up visiting all of the homes of Scholars, new & old, and reviewed all of of the applications for the next school year. Stay tuned in the coming weeks to meet our new Starfish Scholars for the 2014-2015 school year which begins in 2 short weeks!
