Dear Parents,

And suddenly, February is upon us and out 2020 Discover Ecuador.

Please note that the seniors will be on their traditional retreat at school.

Students who are not going DE are required to come to school and will get involved with different local service-based activities. A form was sent to students to choose a minimum of two activities. Time will also be allocated for students to write their reflections on ManageBac and to do extra work.

  • IMAGINE: 8:45 a.m. - 11:45 a.m. Monday-Friday: Working in IMAGINE classrooms with children and teachers. (18 maximum committed every morning)

Strategic Planning – Be Part of the Process - February 14
On behalf of the Board of Directors I would like to extend an invitation to all parents from IMAGINE and Academia Cotopaxi to participate in a “World Cafe” next Friday, February. 14. This will be an informal meeting of minds of students, faculty and parents to discuss where we are and where we are going as a school and an essential part of our Strategic Planning process.

Thank you,
Fred Bordaguibel
