2016 School Year is Over

As the school year has been winding down, we have had a lot of great celebrations and events here at Centro Educativo Tecnico Chixot (CETC) and excitement is definitely in the air. The kids have worked hard in projects to beautify the campus. The primary school kids have planted more flowers along our tire retaining walls along the road and painted fun new characters in front of the classrooms. They also learned about plants in class, and began planting pine trees around the school grounds, including along the edge of the fences. Our 8th graders constructed an outdoor stove, which will be a great addition to the school. The middle school P.E. finals were held, and the kids presented their routines, that they had been working on for months, to their peers. Everyone had a lot of fun and some of the volunteers participated in learning the routines with the kids prior to the final presentation. Dia del Ninos had a performance from all the teachers as well, and the children got to see their teachers dance and celebrate. The fun teachers' performances were followed by pinatas which most students got a chance at whacking and everyone enjoyed the candy. Final exams were completed and there was a ceremony for our graduating Kindergarten and 6th grade students.
