The Newman School in the month of July is very busy with many activities. This is the time when many pictures of students are taken because of graduation. We are so thankful, with many of you for faithfully supporting many of our students with scholarships. You had made it possible for children without opportunity go to school and help them get achieve their academic dreams. They have been enjoying the blessings of the learning process. This year we have 7 students that are finishing the 6th grade and 9 students finishing kindergarten, ready to start first grade. This is a great blessing for us and for the country.
Also in July we celebrate the anniversary of our great national hero, Lempira. Lempira came from the Lenca Indian tribe. On the 20th of July our school celebrated his life. Lempira day is a day when students dress up and reenact the past by dressing up in clothes that remind us of those days when the Lempira fought the Spaniards.
We are very excited for the funds that were received from the Greenville Baptist Church in Rhode Island. The funds will be used for the construction of the church building at Cofradia, Cortes. We hope that by February 2018, we can dedicate this beautiful building Pastor Wendy Kiefer-O’brien and the group from her church comes to visit.
Finally we are so happy to welcome the newest member of our donkey family, Boston. She was born on July 17. She is a beautiful!
