Love is in the Air at El Árbol

Welcome to February - a month full of great activities involving the whole community of El Árbol Green School.

This month's Value of the Month is FRIENDSHIP - something we express every day among all members of our community, and something we feel extremely grateful for. Every teacher, staff member, parent and student in our community plays a big role in our success, and this is only possible because the ties that bind us are strong!

On Valentine's Day we will celebrate our love for our school, our friends and healthy living by hosting our annual FUN-RUN FUNDRAISER event. We are Inviting all parents, teachers and students to join us at El Árbol in Playacar on Feb. 14 to participate in a fun effort to raise money for some of the improvements that our school needs around the campus, as well as class materials, classroom libraries, and much more. Starting at 8:30 a.m. at the school, we will walk - or run - together in a pre-planned circuit around Playacar, ending back at the school campus for a fun party where everyone will be able to enjoy games, activities and delicious treats. Activities will end at 12 p.m. after an exciting raffle. Don't forget to stop by the school office before Feb. 5 to purchase your kid's FUN-RUN t-shirt!

In keeping with El Árbol Green School's project-based learning educational philosophy - a teaching method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world projects that are personally meaningful to them - in February, students across all school grades participate in our annual Self-Directed Projects. Every year, students choose a topic they want to research and prepare a presentation to share with their classmates what they learned. Keep an eye for teachers' instructions on presentation dates and project milestones throughout the month!
