Getting Ready for School to Start!

School starts for the 2011 school year on Monday, Feb. 21st at Centro Escolar LifeLink and I'm really excited!

Over the last week that we've been back in Nicaragua, I've enjoyed catching up with our students and their families as they stop by the base. Everyone is looking forward to the beginning of the school year!

While Wayne has been busy with finishing the Primary School Building, I've been lesson planning, completing registrations and getting all the admin stuff squared away. But yesterday was the most exciting day yet!

Elisa and I got together for some brainstorming and then headed to the bookstore where we purchased our Preschool curriculum for this year! After some feedback from our teachers last year, we felt that changing our curriculum might be a good move for us, so we started researching our options in November. After seeing what the market had to offer and speaking to teachers and Directors of other private schools here in Nica and in the States, we found the perfect curriculum for us! Our students are going to benefit so greatly from this quality platform for learning!

We've also selected our First Grade curriculum and found a bookstore willing to give us an amazing deal on it!

God is blessing our planning and we know that with Him on our side, great things are on the horizon!

Quote Inspiration

Saw this on a friend's fb page and immediately loved it. Great words to kick off the 2011 school year at Centro Escolar LifeLink.
