Unit 5: Human beings develop strategies and/or mechanisms to adapt and thrive

In grade 4, we are starting our unit How the World Works with the central idea:  "Human beings develop strategies and/or mechanisms to adapt and thrive." At the beginning of each unit, teachers work on a provocation with the class in order to present the unit. During this week’s provocation, our team of 4th grade teachers invited students into the unit where they will inquire into the G.R.A.P.E.S.: Geography, Religion, Achievements, Politics, Economy, Social Structures of a variety of Ancient Civilizations. We look forward to seeing how they grow their knowledge, understanding, and skills throughout this unit as they prepare to invite their parents to their museum in May to demonstrate their learning. ------------------------------------------  Unidad 5: "Los seres humanos desarrollan estrategias y/o mecanismos para adaptarse y prosperar".

Day of reforestation and delivery of food supplies in the El Obraje community

Last Saturday, March 9, our high school students joined the families of “El Obraje” community for a special day of reforestation. They began the day with a group dynamic called “Fallen Tree,” designed to reflect on our actions and their impact on the environment. During the day, they worked as a team to plant 20 trees in the area, involving children and adults from the community. This experience not only contributes to caring for the environment, but also fosters collaboration and a sense of shared responsibility. As a gesture of recognition for their effort and dedication, the families were given a food pantry at the end of the activity. The 50 pantries were donated by H-E-B. We firmly believe that these types of initiatives strengthen community ties and enrich service experiences, making them even more meaningful for everyone involved.

Bike-a-thon 2024

On Sunday, March 10, our annual "Bike-a-thon" event in support of the Querétaro Food Bank took place, organized with dedication by the National Honor Society students of High School.  It was an event full of joy and participation where children, youth, teachers, and parents joined together for the same purpose.  Each participant sought sponsors willing to contribute a voluntary donation for each lap on the bike or running on our track. We are deeply moved to see the unity, solidarity, enthusiasm, and human quality of all those who make this event possible.  Thanks to the joint effort, we managed to raise nearly $23,000. This achievement shows the collaborative and generous spirit that characterizes our community.  Thank you very much!
