Bio

Xiomara lives with her mom. Her mom struggles to provide for her daughter as a single mother. She supports her family by washing and ironing clothes for neighbors. Xiomara started 3rd grade in February 2014. Her favorite class is math. She dreams of becoming a teacher when she grows up.

December 2015

Xiomara is so excited to be sponsored and asks about you often! She loves school and works hard to do well. Although she has low grades in some of her classes, she has started attending weekly tutoring sessions to help raise her grades. One concern that her teacher has is that Xiomara writes all of her words together without leaving spaces. We are working to correct this in her tutoring group. At tutoring, Xiomara is given the opportunity to read and practice her language arts. In math, she is learning long division, which can be difficult for many students. Her top grades on her second report card are in civics (80%), physical education (80%), and her vocational class (90%). Xiomara was able to participate in the Independence Day Parade with her school. Through her sponsorship, Xiomara received her uniform, backpack, school shoes, and the materials she needs to be successful in her classes.

April 2016

Xiomara began the new school year 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. She is such a sweet girl who wants to do well. Her science class has been learning about the solar system and the rotation of the earth. She has also been studying maps of Central America and drawing out Nicaragua. Xiomara’s class has been talking about blood types and the importance of donating blood. One of her assignments in class was to draw and diagram the heart. Thank you for your support for Xiomara.

Fall 2016

Xiomara received her second uniform of the year in July. She is halfway through her fifth grade year and is maintaining passing grades in all of her classes. Through her sponsorship, Xiomara has received all of her needed school supplies including notebooks, pens, pencils, and crayons. Her top grades are in her vocational class, physical education, and culture. She has a hard time in her math class but continues to receive passing grades. Her class has been learning about body parts and their functions and how to care for and protect the environment. Xiomara and her family recently moved to another house in the same community. Her school also had a school-wide event celebrating typical Nicaraguan foods. Sponsorship helped provide the funds for this event and the church came together to cook for the school. Xiomara also received her annual dental cleaning and fluoride treatment through the New Song Dental Clinic. Recently, her community was without running water for a couple of weeks. Sponsorship provided the local school with a bucket for every classroom so that the students could have drinking water while in class. In June, Nicaragua experienced a strong earthquake. Xiomara comments that she was afraid but that she learned she should always be prepared with a flashlight.
