We are so thankful for the way God provides. As the beginning of the school year approached, this room had no floor, windows, or doors, and the walls were unfinished cement block. The classrooms had no floors either. We did not know how we would get the school ready for the new school year. God provided unexpectedly through a group from B.C. in Canada who came with project funds and willing hearts to help us get the school ready.
Mme Carlo started early in the morning to tidy up the grounds and classrooms.
Up it goes as everyone sings the Haitian national anthem.
Now, a prayer to begin the day.
The kindergarten rooms were gaily and colorfully decorated.
Despite that, the kindergarten teachers had their hands full with all the first-year children who were not too sure about this experience called “school.”
The teachers tried to convince the kids that kindergarten was FUN by quickly starting off with some singing.
Some were not impressed.
But there were many happy faces as well.
By September 29, all kids are required to have and wear their uniforms. Then, we will introduce you to each class and its teacher.
Until next time…
