We Broke Ground For The New Classes Early.

During the Open House preentation that was held on the 18th of June, we decided to include the ground-breaking ceramony in the program.

We are pleased to anounce that the total cost for the new addition is in the bank. We want to thank one of our supporters who got his friends together and made this project possible. You all know who you are and we thank you very much. Come on over for the September 1st ribon cutting. Every one here at the school would love to shake you hand.

If you click on the picture you can have a better view of the addition and the area in front of the classrooms. This is an important part of the project as it will eliminate a major problem that we have....The controp of the volconic dust that drifts into the classes on both levals. We are still accepting donations for this project. If you would like to help, please feel free to push the donate button below.

Just Completing The Secnd Waterless Bathroom.

The pre-school kiks have been using too much sawdust so we are building their own bathroom righ outside the classroom. Hopefully they will receive more personal attention when they use the toilet.

Vacation Plans

On July 6th we plan to break ground on this project that we have been planning since last October. We hope to have it completed by the first day of the new school year, which is September 7th.

The first pisture is what the area looks like now. The sandy area in front is made up of volcanic ash mixed with fine sand. And when it has not rained for a day or so, is an inexhaustible source of dust which is tracked and blown into the classrooms on both levels.

The lower level houses a small classroom to the right and a bathroom.

This is what this area will look like in September.
On the lower level we will have one more bathroom and two new classrooms which will be the same size as the one at the far left.
