Virginia is really enjoying being in fourth grade this year. She is very smart, and is getting excellent grades across the board, although she says Language Arts is still her favorite. Through sponsorship, she was able to get a new uniform, shoes, backpack, and school supplies to start her school year off strong in February. Sponsorship will also help her cover costs for an upcoming school trip to the local swimming hole, which she is very much looking forward to. Virginia and her cousin won 3rd place with their team in a dance competition at the local Casa de Cultura in March, and will be going on to compete again in April. Virginia loved receiving your gift. She was smiling ear-to-ear as she opened it and showed each of her presents to her family.

She was honored as a majorette in the local Independence Day parade in September, and was chosen as one of her school's best dancers to perform traditional Nicaraguan dances at the upcoming graduation ceremony. Sponsorship helps cover the costs of each of these extracurriculars, as well as providing a new pair of shoes, school supplies, and medical attention when she was feeling poorly.

She continues to attend youth group regularly and is growing into a beautiful young lady. Through her sponsorship, Virginia went to the New Song Clinic to see the doctor when she wasn’t feeling well and was given medicine. She is feeling better. Virginia and her family received a water filter and a teaching on water borne illnesses. This will provide them with cleaning drinking water for the next several years.

July 2015

Virginia is working hard this year in school. She has brought up her grades some from her first report card but continues to struggle in math. Her class is learning long division which can be a difficult topic for many students. Through her sponsorship, Virginia received her second uniform and school shoes of the year. She was also able to participate in her school’s events for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, and International Children’s Day. She received funds and extra school supplies to complete several class assignments and projects.

November 2015

Virginia is happy to be on vacation from school until February. She finished her fifth grade year strong and will go on to sixth grade next year. At her school, fifth and sixth grade are held in the same classroom with the same teacher so Virginia will keep the same teacher next year. During the second grading period, Virginia was failing math. She was having some difficulty understanding long division. However, she worked hard to pull her grades up and pass for the year. Her top grades were in science (90%). Virginia’s cousin and friend is graduating from elementary school this year which means that she will go to another school next year. Virginia is not looking forward to not being in the same school as her friend.

April 2016

Virginia began her sixth and final year of elementary school at the beginning of February. Thanks to her sponsorship, she received her uniform, backpack, shoes, school supplies, and an athletic outfit to be able to participate in her physical education class. Virginia’s math class is learning about polygons and is working to calculate the perimeter of these shapes. In her language arts class, Virginia is learning about dialogues and dramas. Her class has gotten to perform some skits for the other students. Virginia’s cousin just moved up to high school last year. She and Virginia are very close and not having her at the same school is hard for Virginia. We are excited for Virginia this year to graduate from elementary school!

Fall 2016

Virginia received her second uniform and pair of school shoes of the year in July. She is halfway through her last year of elementary school and is excited to celebrate her graduation in December. She is looking forward to being a high school student next year. Virginia is struggling to keep her grades up and put forth her best effort in her classes.

While some of Virginia’s grades are lower, from her first report card to her second, she raised her grades in math, culture, her vocational class, science, and social studies. Her teacher comments that she attends class daily and is always on time. Virginia was able to rent a costume to perform a traditional Nicaraguan dance with selected students from her class. In Language Arts, Virginia has been learning about how to read scientific text. Her science class has been studying the effects of HIV/AIDS and in math, they are working on long division.
