Marty Online   happy
School starts Monday September 5 and the San Pedro RC School needs your help.

The teachers and volunteers are working to replace the school’s old
blackboards with new dry-erase, whiteboards and has launched an
“Adopt-A-Whiteboard” campaign.

These new whiteboards are better for children’s learning AND health.
As you know, the classrooms at the RC School classrooms are open to the
air, with lots of dust and sand coming into the rooms from the beach and
streets. Add the humidity and chalk dust and, by the afternoons, you can
actually see the air in classrooms.

Over the years, many children and their teachers have complained about
breathing problems.

To combat the sneezing, coughing, and breathing problems, the teachers set
a goal to get whiteboards for the school’s classrooms for the 2011-12
school year.

For BZ$350, your business, organization or even you, as an individual,
can “adopt” a whiteboard for the children of the RC School.

Already Mr. Curt Fisher, owner of the Blue Tang Resort, has “adopted” 10
classrooms. Exotic Caye Resort and SEAduced have each adopted a
classroom.

For the betterment of the students of the RC School, please make a donation.

LET's DO THIS!!!!! Message Boarders STEP UP!!!!



Summer vacations are almost over and everybody is in the ‘back-to-school’ rush. Parents and students are making sure that they have all their textbooks, pencils, school bags and much need school supplies. Teachers and school principals are also busy preparing classrooms, school grounds and lesson plans for this coming Monday, September 5, 2011.

This week, teachers and volunteers at the San Pedro Roman Catholic School are working to replace the school’s old blackboards with new dry-erase whiteboards and have launched an “Adopt-a-Whiteboard” Campaign.

These new whiteboards are better for children’s learning and most importantly their health. The RC School classrooms are open to the air and are exposed to lots of dust and sand coming into the rooms from the beach and streets. By the afternoon, with the humidity and chalk dust, you can actually see clouds of dust in the classroom.

Over the years, many children and their teachers have complained about breathing problems. So to combat the sneezing, coughing, and breathing problems, the teachers set a goal to get whiteboards for the school’s classrooms for the 2011-12 school year.

For BZ$350, your business, organization or even you, as an individual, can “adopt” a whiteboard for the children of the RC School. Much thanks and appreciation is in order for Mr. Curt Fisher, owner of the Blue Tang Resort who has “adopted” 10 classrooms, Exotic Caye Resort and SEAduced by Belize, The Palms Resort and Wil & Susan Lala, have each adopted a classroom.

A total of 14 whiteboards have been adopted and there are 16 more left for adoption. For the betterment of the students of the RC School, please make a donation. Kindly contact: Ms. Roxani Kay, Principal, San Pedro Roman Catholic Primary School, 226-2550 (school office) or 622-3266 (cell phone) or email: roxanicruz@yahoo.com.
