Enjoy a little peak into the first day of school this year! The Makarios family is excited to begin a new school year! Behold our 5th, 6th and 7th graders in their pristine Adonai uniforms (the partner school where we are sending these grades to while we work on getting our Dominican school code). We know you will be as captivated as we are by the cute characters we have been entrusted with this year.
Thank you to Richie Sparling, Outreach Coordinator, for capturing the photos and videos for this snapshot into Day 1, 2015.

From my observation, teaching a bunch of 3 year olds is like herding kittens. Just when you manage to get them all in a huddle, or a line, one or two run off. Profe Gabrielle and Profe Gloria (along with our other Makarios teachers) need to be recommended for some sort of amazing prize, medal, reward, certificate. Something. They don't do what they do for the prize or the recognition, but a standing ovation might be nice every once and a while! Certainly they will have lots of jewels on their crowns in heaven! The patience level of teachers anywhere is something to be marvled at, but Makarios teachers take it up a notch.
It's the end of a school year and the children have made a lot of progress. Water is a big deal. Playing in water is a luxury that most don't have the opportunity to enjoy. So to celebrate the end of the year, the Pre K 3 class had a water day at the Makarios house. What a sight to behold . . .
They embraced the water with WILD abandon!
From the pool to the slip-n-slide to the popsicle treats, they had a BLAST!
Cuteness + el agua = Good times!
