This week we get the chance to hear from our “Ayudantes” in Guasmo about the beginning of the school year there!
“During May and June, we set up a schedule with the parents to help us with snack. So far, everyone has collaborated and the kids are satisfied with the snack they are given.
In the Starfish Foundation in Guasmo we have 2 groups:
Group 1: The students come Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. In the morning we have 7th, 8th and 9th graders, and in the afternoon we have 10th, 11th and 12th grades. In each group they do their homework, and during free time we do ice-breakers. The new students and the old students get along very well, there’s a lot of friendship and everyone helps each other.
Group 2: The students come Tuesday and Friday in the morning and they are in 6th and 7th grade. They do their homework and during free time we do ice-breakers. The new students and the old students get along very well, there’s a lot of friendship and everyone helps each other. They really like the ice-breakers and other activities, and they have a lot of ideas.
We also had a parents meeting to explain the new rules, values and snack system.
In the foundation, we also go on field trips, and one of those was the Integration Day when we spent a morning playing sports with the Scholars.
