We hosted an English Night to end the school year and celebrate with the families. 50 students were present that night (out of 70 total), and the benches were packed with mothers, fathers, grandparents and siblings. For most parents, it was the first time they were watching their children speak in English!
|I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart! The kids sang this and many of their other favorite songs. They did such a fantastic job, I am convinced they could’ve done it without the teachers and cue cards.|
Can you feel the love tonight? I asked the students to give me a hug before they left. I meant they could come up one by one. Instead, they all surrounded me at once!!
Even better, was when the parents lined up and each one took a moment to thank me personally for working with their son or daughter, and to assure me their student would be signed up next year. I pray that these parent-teacher relationships continue to strengthen over time.
To ensure continued success with English in Carpio, we need investors like you! Would you like to sponsor a promising young student?
