Vida Nueva Elementary School grade four

Your class is learning a lot this year! In Grade 4, the students are learning to recognize their gifts, talents and abilities and to use them for the benefit of others, and to use biblical principles to address conflicts. They continue to learn that God created them and loves them. They are working on their reading comprehension and writing paragraphs with coherence and structure. They are continuing to work on problem solving in math, and recognizing ordinal, Mayan, and Roman numerals. They are learning about national authorities and their roles in the community. They are learning about the senses and their functions, as well as the major organs of the human body, 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 Nueva Elementary School

This class is part of Impact Ministries' Vida Nueva Elementary School. In 2013 the mayor of Purulhá asked us to consider establishing a school in the rural area of Purulhá occupied by two very small villages named Villa Nueva and Tierra Linda. There is great poverty in this area. The homes lack sewer systems and there is no public water. People carry water in buckets to their homes and many bathe and wash laundry in the small creek that runs through the village. The people in the community showed a strong sense of support by gathering funds and seeking us out. They want something better for their children! We built three classrooms as well as washrooms in order to begin a school. The government authorization came in January 2014 and we now have 130 students who are enrolled in Kindergarten through to Grade 7. As the children learn to worship, study God’s Word and put their faith in Him, these communities will be transformed for the Lord.
