School News


Today we will celebrate this value by sharing this words from our school director:

¨We don't have to use other areas of the school to work in our daily activities (we encourage it, but it is up to the teacher to do so!) After only 1 week of being with us (and you know how scary it is at the beginning!) Ms. Aurora, a teacher who I see lives her profession as a teacher with so much passion took the risk of doing something different and took her class to the hallway next to my office, covered it with paper and let students explore with crayons, markers, and much more! I appreciate her doing it after just a couple of days with us and with all the nervousness of leading a new classroom!¨ #BeTheChangeLiveVESS

Dear parents, just to let you know, we are working on our agreements for the classroom!

We had fun sharing, huging and collaborating with a mutual purpose and common goals! #BeTheChangeLiveVESS


It fills us with happiness and pride to see our teachers living with passion and going beyond! Ms. Sandra is our Infants Teacher; she has been working with us since we first opened the school. She has become an amazing coach and trainer in our VESS Curriculum. She has helped and supported our new teachers in their process of learning about VESS. Her love, patience, and passion has truly made a difference in our team! Thank you, Ms. Sandra for Living with Passion and Going Beyond!
