Gaelson

Grade: Pre-Primary

Birthday: November 10

With the help of Espwa Berlancia, a malnutritional clinic where many of our kids volunteer, Gaelson has overcome severe malnutrition. He later received life-saving care for a previously untreated pulmonary infection through the assistance of a group of generous doctors and volunteers culminating in surgery at Children’s Hospital in Michigan. He was excited to be around children his own age and quickly made friends. He’s very silly and mischievous, and may just be our best dancer.

Delayed Until the Fall, This Year’s Spelling Bee is As Ambitious As Ever!

Can you spell Platyhelminthes?!

This year, our annual Spelling Bee was held in September. Although it’s usually a late spring event, school director Cara Nesser wasn’t able to visit because of COVID-19 restrictions. Held just before the start of our new fall term, the spelling bee thus came with an extra challenge: the students had to remember vocabulary words from last year, and study them again.

What Oscars? We’ve Got Our Own Film Festival

An annual highlight of the school year, our students are treated to a documentary film festival celebrating the work of independent storytellers who provide educational, and thrilling, perspectives to explore. Designed by school director Cara Nesser, the festival takes place at the start of winter term and is guided by different thematic lessons.
