Vida Elementary School Purulhá grade three

Your class is learning a lot this year! In Grade 3, the students are learning to take care of themselves, recognizing their body as the temple of the Holy Spirit. They are learning to understand their uniqueness and purpose within their family and community, acknowledge their mistakes and shortcomings, and show initiative in seeking reconciliation. They are working on effective oral and written expression, including spelling and punctuation, and problem solving, including the addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator. They are continuing to work on recognizing Mayan and Roman numerals. Grade 3 students are learning about the functioning of the major systems of the human body and how that relates to personal hygiene for maintaining health. They are learning about the purposeful creation of everything, recognizing balance and interdependence in the natural environment and assuming responsibility for its care, and how to classify living creatures based on common characteristics. They’re continuing to learn to follow instructions and take care of their classroom.

Vida Elementary School Purulhá

This class is part of Impact Ministries' Vida Elementary School Purulhá in Purulhá, a small town located approximately a 25-minute drive southeast of Tactic. The public schools are filled to capacity with only 1,200 of the 10,000 school aged children from the area. This means that 8,800 school spaces are needed. The mayor of Purulhá implored us to plant a school in his community, and he donated a large piece of land to Impact Ministries for the construction of a school. We opened the doors of the school in January 2007 and provide an elementary program for approximately 150 students from Preschool to Grade 7. Most of these children come from needy and broken homes our hope and goal are to raise them up to be leaders who serve Him and influence the community around them.
