The International School Nido de Aguilas



The 2017-2018 academic year brought about a few changes for the EYS. We welcomed Grade 1 into our division and we received a new name, Early Years School instead of ECC (Early Childhood Center). The students physically, mentally, and emotionally changed, sometimes right before our eyes.

The PK students arrived to the EYS wide-eyed and uncertain of what to expect as they began their educational journey. They learned about their own bodies and emotions at the beginning of the year to expanding to learning about the neighborhood around them. The smiles, laughter, tears, and unstoppable spoken words have shown the growth that happened within PK this year.

Students in K1 began the year, most of them with some familiarity of Nido, yet faced with new teachers and classmates. They gained more body awareness amongst themselves and their peers. They sang, explored, counted, learned new vocabulary, and expanded their views that the world is bigger than just their own bubble. I am always amazed at how much physical growth takes place in the years from 4 to 5...especially those legs they just keep stretching out!

Moving up to the second floor, the K2 students expanded their minds, as they became writers, readers, and mathematicians. They explored and discovered new concepts from their own inquiry, or prompted by their teachers, and peers. The inquisitive nature of the K2 students was contagious, as you saw through the Earth Protectors Project.

Welcoming Grade 1 into the EYS has been a fulfilling experience for the students, teachers, and community. The students made giant leaps with their academic abilities, as they became fluent readers, authors that published written works, and explored number sense to greater depths. They improved the playground by designing, creating and implementing their designs after a thorough process that included parents.

These are simply a few highlights of the past year. As I consistently say, parents, we could not do what we do without the support you all give us in the EYS. The commitment and involvement from you all has been noticed and appreciated!

I wish the best of luck to all the families that are departing Nido. Grade 1 families, I wish you well as you transition into the ES. Mr. James and Mr. Penhollow and all the Grade 2 teachers are eagerly awaiting your entry into the Elementary School. The rest of you, I look forward to welcoming you back for the 2018-2019 academic year! Enjoy your winter vacations!
