Your class is learning a lot this year! In Grade 1, the students are learning to express worship and praise to the Lord voluntarily in their devotions, demonstrating gratitude through their attitudes. They are learning to recognize the Lord as their creator, and they exhibit a keen interest in discovering and developing the gifts bestowed upon them by God. They are learning that obedience is reflected in their positive behavior both within and outside the school, and they are learning compassion and repentance in the face of mistakes. In Grade 1, the students are exploring the initial stages of literacy and mathematical operations. They are learning to recognize and write numbers from 1 to 100, identify and trace alphabet letters, and understand consonant and vowel combinations. They are continuing to learn aspects of personal care and hygiene

Vida Elementary School Mocohán

This class is part of Impact Ministries' Vida Elementary School Mocohán. The community of Mocohán has over 1,000 school age children and yet only one small public school. This leaves 750 children without the opportunity to go to school. Impact Ministries was given a piece of property by the community council and invited to open a school project. The Mocohán Vida School opened January 2007 and we provide an elementary program for approximately 200 students from Preschool to Grade 7. This community is known for infighting and poverty. The majority of adults are unable to read or write. Even many of the pastors only teach by repeating what they have heard because they can't read the Bible for themselves. A large majority of the children don't have a father figure in their home. Out of the tragedy of this situation God is doing a beautiful work in this school. Students are learning to seek God. Bible memorization is a priority and lives are being changed. There is a feeling of love and peace among the students and teachers. They are very thankful for everything that God is providing them through the school.
