The school commemorated Independence Day with a beautiful program. Students, teachers, Staff and, especially, our Parents' Association made a great effort to celebrate our freedom. ¡Viva la República Dominicana!
Today we had a special flag raising with the National Army Band playing the Himno Nacional to commemorate our Independence Day.
We rejoiced yesterday during chapel, as we gave away awards to the Middle School Students of the Month. These awards are given once a month to students who exemplify the Personas Integras traits. These are the traits that are emphasized and encouraged in Middle School in their quest to become people like Jesus in character, wisdom and influence. Traits such as respect, advocacy, perseverance, servant leadership, critical thinking are encouraged. Congratulations, dear students!
In 7th and 8th grade last week we used the Sun's Energy to cook delicious treats in Science class.
From February 2 to 6, a group of 14 high school students had the opportunity to participate in the MUNUC 2017 Conference in the city of Chicago. The event was organized by the students of the University of Chicago, where discussions were held simultaneously in 19 different commissions and councils of the United Nations. Our students had the opportunity to interact with around 2,600 students from different parts of the world, discuss issues of the current UN agenda, and visit a city as impressive as it is Chicago.
