Rosemika

Birthday: September 26

Rosemika is from Aux Cayes, and joined us in the summer of 2021. She is very bright, and her personality is as big as her body is small. You’ll find her posing for the camera like a pro. She also loves telling the other kids what to do.  

Mirlanda

Birthday: September 4

Mirlanda is Chika’s older sister, and joined us at the Mission in 2017. Shy and a bit reserved until she knows you better, Mirlanda is sweet, smart, and competitive. Mirlanda likes to read, and her favorite book is “Greek Gods.” Math is a favorite subject, and she’s thinking about becoming a doctor or a dancer when she grows up. 

Junie-Anna

A voracious reader, Junie-Anna is the proud bookworm of the Mission. She enjoys studying science, especially classifying species within the animal kingdom.

Her favorite subject is cultural geography.

Appoloste

Nickname: Apple Sauce
Birthday: September 6

Appoloste is as sweet as his nickname. His joy is infectious; he loves to crack jokes and make others smile. He values one on one quiet time with the teachers and staff and always offers to help if it means spending quality time with them. His favorite subject is math and he has enjoyed learning about wood working this year. In his free time, he likes to play the piano. His favorite song to play is “Hit the Road Jack” by Ray Charles.
