Back to school time - Miss Francis update

September 7, 2008

Dear Friends,  We survived the first week of school - yea!!  The days proceeding September 1st were wild and crazy as we worked 'round the clock to have everything ready.  Thanks be to God and with your prayers almost 500 children found a safe haven and a place of learning ready and waiting...two new classrooms, computer lab(!!), school supplies, seventeen teachers, Feeding Program, nurse/councilor, textbooks, uniforms, soccer balls, library books, toilet paper, purified water and much, much more!!!  Many thanks on behalf of those who are still too young to thank you themselves - smile!

Wish you could all be here with us this Friday at 10am for the official Dedication, Blessing and Opening of our new Computer Lab...Bishop Philip Wright will say the prayers and our guests will represent the local, national and international (that's you!) communities.  Many, many thanks to all those who made this dream a reality!!!!!!!

Please enjoy a few photos of our first day of school on Monday, September 1st.  The first children (picture one) arrived at 7:05am!!! Also, please check out the following blog spot from Michele who recently came on a tour of the school.  She is from Playa Del Carmen and the post below has pics and a write up of her visit.  You need to scroll through the first few pictures to get to Holy Cross!!

As always, we count on your support to make this miracle continue to happen.  Please send checks made payable to 'Holy Cross Anglican School' to:

Holy Cross Anglican School
San Pedro Town
Ambergris Caye, Belize

Oh behalf of our 495 students and staff...THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!  
Blessings, Francis
