A New School Year!

Andrea Arrivillaga teaches Norse mythology to her class of 4th and 5th graders.















Last week, on 25 January 2016, Escuela Caracol began its 9th school year with 80 children between kindergarten and sixth grade. The campus is buzzing with lively activity once again! This is a special year because all of our teachers and teaching assistants have been at Escuela Caracol for at least three years, which brings an important sense of stability to school life. This year we want to celebrate the loving and dedicated team of teachers and staff at Escuela Caracol that continues to bless our community. Keep an eye out for special profiles on these wonderful people.

Below are a few images taken during the first day of classes by Eric Mencher, professional photographer, supporter and friend of Escuela Caracol. Included among these photos are images from the first grade induction ceremony, where the first graders with their parents pass through a «rainbow tunnel» made by the rest of the primary school to receive a rose from their new teacher, who guides them to the classroom. Thanks, Eric, for accompanying us on this special day! Please check out Eric’s site to see some of his amazing photos from around the world: www.ericmencher.com
