Two Weeks Left....And the vacation classes will be history for 2008.

This year we offered Biology, Math, and English to whoever wanted to spend half of their winter vacation in the classroom instead of hanging around their homes where they most likely will be asked to help in the fields. This year we have more than 20 students who are taking all three of the subjects. Classes start at 9:30 in the morning and end at 2:30. We also provide them with a snack in the morning and a hot lunch at noon.

Almost everyday, new kids appear with their moms, sisters or other family members wanting to enroll. It is really sad to have to tell them that it is not possible to take them because we are well into the different subjects and there are only a couple of weeks left.
 

We have three volunteer teachers for the vacation classes. Elizabeth from Ohio, Erika, from Florida and myself, as I am substituting for Ed who had to leave because of illness.
 
Elizabeth, returned for her second year here at Katitawa and is teaching all three subjects.

 
Erika, who is here for three months, is teaching English and math.
