Today Denise and I went top do some art work with Mr Darwin Tun's class and had a great time with the kids - split them up into 3 groups - boys made planes and 2 tables of girls doing coloring and crafts.To help boost what we brought with us. Miss Grace and Miss Lara let is go through the supply closet for some glue, markers, colored pencils, and paper. If you would like to help the kids get creative, art supplies are a very welcome donation.
Anyone interested in participating in art, drama or any skill set they might have to offer please call the School office 226-3456 or email me at the address in my tacogirlblog profile - this can be a one time thing or on a part time basis.
We are also looking for valentine cards if anyone reading this is coming down soon.

Making cards and puppets
Denise and I went up tp the school today so she could volunteer to do arts and crafts with the kids a couple of times a week - we came up with the idea to make things that they can use in drama and putting on plays.
While there we did part of the tour and met another really nice couple who was looking to see how they could do something with the school.
If you want to add a new experience to your vacation I highly recomend you make plans to drop by the school and see the kids. - they are a great bunch.
Anyone arriving before Valentines that has room to bring candy it would be greatly appreciated. I am also looking for people interested to speak at career day Monday Feb 25th. DCG is the first volunteer for that.
