SONG FEST – Please do not forget that this Friday, December 11 we will hold our Songfest. This year, the theme is the AWESOME 80’s, and our students have been working very hard in preparing their presentations for our school community. The show will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. Since traffic tends to be very hectic at this time of the year, and especially on Fridays, we recommend you try to be here early. We are inviting you to come at 5:00 p.m. and enjoy the delicious food that will be sold by the DPTO, the drinks sold by the Seniors, and the tasty pastry sold by the Community Service, and do a little bit of Christmas shopping with selected vendors from the Xmas Bazaar.
NPH GIVING TREE- Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos (NPH) is an international organization that takes in abandoned and orphaned children, providing a home and education. Here in Honduras, the NPH organization provides for over 500 children in at large ranch near La Venta and home in Tegucigalpa for severely handicapped children. While many children at the ranch have aunts, uncles, or grandparents that come to visit them and can provide some Christmas gifts, some children at a ranch have no family to visit. It is these children, whom we would like to provide for this Christmas. On the second floor of the secondary building, a NPH Giving Tree will be set up. If you wish to participate, choose a paper tree that has a child’s information about his/her size for shoes or socks. Purchase the new item and return it to Mrs. Agurcia’s Room (Rm. 7) by Tuesday, December 8th, with the tree tag taped to it. Thank you for giving this Christmas!
