Dear Parents,

Human relations are at the core of children’s well being and I am sure that each of you enjoyed this magical time with your sons and daughters. As I walked through classrooms this morning, I was privileged to listen to children’s stories about memorable moments, traditions and activities. Once again, I admired how children listened to each other, welcomed stories warmly, made connections… There was one important thread and it was how powerful engaging with family and friends. It seemed like the best gifts were their experiences with people! 

We send you our very best wishes for the new year. May 2020 be a year filled with wonderful experiences with your children and may the gift of magical, warm and happy moments multiply!

Please note that extracurricular activities (Session II) begin on Monday, January 13. If you have any questions, please contact Damiana at:

We also want to ask for your help with two important school aspects. The first one is related to dress code. All children are expected to attend school wearing the dress code items. Your support with this is critical. The other aspect is related to snack items and snack containers. Please send your children healthy snacks in non-disposable containers.

One of the ways in which we approach home learning is through students’ engagement in personal inspiration projects. Any parent is welcome to our showcases where students in grades 3-5 who are ready with their project, exhibit their learning and design process. Our next showcase will take place on Tuesday, January 14 at 8:15 p.m.

Warm regards,
Paola de Pereira
Elementary School Principal
