An invitation to reflect with our parents on what lessons did we learn with Hurricane Irma

September 25, 2017

We created a provocation in the Piazza area with pieces of trunks that were cut from one of our school trees.  We added paper of different sizes with markers. We asked the parents to write a word or a story of what they learned.    Writing our reflections as a community helps us digest the enormity of nature and what happened.  It reminds us of how important our values are; such as,  relationships, love, hope, faith, family, patience, and togetherness.   We are a school family!

Our school was saved with minimal damage to our playground.  Our beautiful trees did not survive but we see this as an opportunity for the children to research with our teachers the effects of strong winds, and rain.  We will look at the importance of nature and how it affects everyone in our City of Miami.

September 1, 2017

Our parents were instrumental in helping us to prepare for Hurricane Irma.   We appreciate the fact that they took time off their own preparations to offer their help.  Coming together as a community in times of not knowing what would happen to us was a testament to the value our parents have for our school.  We want to thank Guy, Pablo, Lester, Yanel and many other parents that offered their support.
