End of the school year in San Pedro

(para leer en español, dele clíc aquí)

This time of year, we celebrate the end of the school year and graduations, either from ninth grade or high school, in most of the communities. In San Pedro, we had our last scholarship meeting of the year on November 24, and the students presented a skit about their academic experiences to their parents and other adults in their community as a way of opening a dialogue about education among the generations.

The middle schoolers from San Pedro go to middle school in the neighboring community of El Limón, in the municiplaity of Joateca, Morazán. On November 27, we celebrated the graduation of Clarisa, Antonio, and Leonarda, three ninth graders from the community of San Pedro. We are so proud of these young people and the effort and dedication that they and their families have put towards their education.

  1. We are so proud of these fine young ladies and gentlemen! They look so handsome, beautiful, and proud of themselves. These pictures make me wish I had been there in person to shake hands with each one of them. Thank you for posting these. Congratulations from Central New York.
