Summer is upon us! And many of our HOLD schools have started their summer break. At our Onaville School in Port au Prince, Haiti a graduation service was held for the younger students for their completion of Kindergarten, moving up to first grade. The children looked precious dressed in their matching coral dresses for the girls and coral shirts and ties for the boys. At our Capva School, also in Port au Prince, classes have wrapped up and a wonderful summer Vacation Bible School program is underway. Up on the northern coast, in Port de Paix and in Cap Haitien, our schools successfully completed their end of year testing and students were excited to spend some time at home. The teachers look forward to some much needed training taking place this summer. It will help better prepare them for the coming school year.
Down in Jamaica, students just recently wrapped up school for the summer and are on their way home to reunite with family. Mission Discovery teams have been there at JCSD for the past month working on the school building and adding on more classrooms. And in Guatemala, the recent volcanic activity near Kairos Christian School caused school to be closed for a few days. But they were able to finish out the school year strong despite the interruption from the volcano.
Thank you for making it possible for students in all 12 of our schools to receive a life changing education that will be instrumental in breaking their cycle of poverty.
