Feliz Dia de San Valentin!

Hello friends! I hope you had a happy Valentine’s Day at home, at work, with friends and with family. We certainly celebrated in style!

The elementary students began a soccer tournament, with the first game played between Primero A and Primero B. While the kids are certainly into the game, they’re such good sports too! It’s fun to watch them, and with our new third story, there’s plenty of “stadium” style seating! Some day, I hope you can watch recess soccer tournaments with us!

The middle school and high school students, for their celebration, didn’t organize a soccer tournament, but a school dance! Tercero was in charge of the organization, and put together a wonderful ceremony. The event began with a traditional dance, and did the students look sharp in their traditional clothing instead of their standard uniforms. After the formal dance, there was a mixer, so that students in their first year could get to know students in their last year, and vice versa and every year in between. Finally, there was the part of the night that everyone was waiting for… the dance! There was a good mix of pop, reggaeton and salsa music, and some of the students certainly surprised the staff with their salsa steps.

All in all, we had a great day and everyone had fun!
