ES Jan15

This week, I would like to invite you to look for those special moments where you experience your children’s joy.  Reflecting on how we impact our children’s happiness is such a gift.  Look for how your children smile when they see you after-school, watch them as you cuddle with a book, ask them what they like to do with you, and enjoy these special times.  

So, when you come to Bingo this Friday, pay attention to how they like to be with you, around you and play with you.  Childhood is precious, it goes by fast, and we find that in our busy lives there is more and more time that we are leaving childhood attended by others including TV, games, internet and more…  

All parents received an email with Talent Show information.  To register your child or group, please complete the form at this link by Wednesday, January 23 at 4:00 pm to ensure that your child can audition.  For questions or more information, please contact Gabriel Cadenas at  (Guidelines: Guidelines for Academia Cotopaxi Talent Show 2019).

It is an honor to report that our Elementary School has completed the first phase of the PYP self-study process per the photo above.  This process entailed ALL stakeholders self-reflecting on 73 practices, documenting on 120 pages with evidence, with more than 48 achievements to celebrate, and 14 action plans to continue to grow in.  Thank you for your support and contributions towards this process.  The next step will include a PYP Team Visit to our campus on March 18-19, 2019.
