Vida Elementary School Mocohán grade five

Your class is learning a lot this year! In Grade 5, the students are discovering what it means to belong to the Body of Christ and learning to rely on the power of God to face daily challenges. They demonstrate a keen interest in learning to live according to biblical principles and moral, ethical and civic values, and they are also learning to understand the Bible’s structure. In Grade 5, students are continuing to work on math concepts such as fractions, ratios, proportions and decimals. They are learning to write well-structured paragraphs and to express emotions, feelings and thoughts through oral presentations, dramas and songs. They are learning to use science and technology, previous knowledge and research to creatively propose solutions for real-world issues.

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.
