School year 2017-18 is off to a phenomenal start in the Middle School! Everyone is energized by our new MS division and delighted to be part of the Academia Cotopaxi mission. All students and teachers spent time on the first day of school interacting with the school’s mission statement. I encourage you to read it and talk to your child about what his/her group did to enact their part of the statement. The mission statement is at the foundation of everything we do and will guide us as we build a cohesive MS culture.
An enormous THANK YOU to everyone who registered and paid for Discover Ecuador! We only have a few missing families, which is a big gain over last year. Please take the time to carefully look at the packing list and itinerary sent home in my earlier communication. All students are responsible to bring EVERYTHING on the packing list. We are very excited for this week of experiential learning!
