Café con Valores y Psicología:
Segundo Grado:
Invitamos a todos los padres y madres de segundo grado este viernes 29 de Enero a las 7:45am (campus Zona Norte) a un café con valores y las psicólogas. En este trataremos puntualmente los contenidos del programa de educación se xual que se trabajará con sus hijos y se dará orientación de cómo manejar el tema en casa.
Cuarto Grado:
El jueves 21 de enero tuvimos un espectacular café con las madres de cuarto grado. ¡Qué bueno fue sentir que estamos trabajando juntos para sacarle el mayor provecho a la tecnología y que estamos reduciendo los riegos al máximo!
Inició Curso de STEP:
Esta semana iniciamos STEP. Estamos esperando que en 8 semanas tengamos 40 familias más certificadas en este programa.
Consejería de Carrera
La semana pasada se realizaron una serie de presentaciones a los cursos 10, 11 y 12 para que entiendan más sobre el proceso de selección de carrera y las diferentes opciones que tienen para ir a la universidad. En ellas se tocaron temas desde los factores que influyen para decidir una carrera, cómo investigar y reunir información sobre las áreas de interés, los requisitos que se tienen en diferentes países hasta los costos de la educación hoy en día. Esta presentación quedó pendiente para grado 9 y se estará realizando en los próximos días.

Posteriormente, realizamos la entrega de las pruebas vocacionales para todos los cursos (incluyendo grado 9), donde se explicó a los estudiantes que éstas pruebas les ayudan a entender cuáles son sus habilidades, aptitudes e intereses; y basado en éstas, se definen áreas profesionales que deben empezar a ver o continuar analizando. Se recomendó a los estudiantes investigar esas carreras que les salieron en la prueba, haciendo entrevistas a profesionales o buscando en páginas web que recomendamos en las presentaciones (https://www.mymajors.com , https://bigfuture.collegeboard.orghttps://www.cacareerzone.org ).

En casa ustedes pueden ayudar a sus hijos a entender más qué son las profesiones que les interesan, ayudarlos a hablar con profesionales en el área y reunir información que los ayude a tomar decisiones fundamentadas. En el colegio continuaremos las diferentes actividades como ferias universitarias, el día de las carreras, visitas a universidades para seguir este difícil pero importante proceso.
English Version:
The translation to the image is below it:
Bearing in mind that the El Niño phenomenon controls “ZIKA
Zika is a viral disease that is only transmitted by being bitten by an infected mosquito (the same species that transmits Dengue and Chikungunya diseases)
Symptoms
  • Neuritis and neurological conditions
  • Red eyes without secretion or itchiness
  • Fever, that may not be very high
  • Muscle aches and joints pain, headache and back pain
  • Skin rash with white or red dots
  • Eliminate water puddles
  • Use mosquito repellent
  • Set a mosquito bednet
Treatment
  • Avoid self-medication
  • You can control the pain with Acetaminophen or paracetamol and the itchiness with antihistamines
  • Drink lots of fluids, the fever, and climate heat make your body loose water through sweat and respiration. Adults must consume between two and three liters a day, children continuously when they feel the need.   
  • Drink water, coconut water, soups, fruit juice or a rehydration drink
  • Use a mosquito bednet in areas where you know there’s a presence of mosquitoes
  • Avoid dehydration because it may have complications, if necessary, rest in bed.
Spread the word!

Psychology and Values:
Eagles doing it Right!: This week the school’s Technology Department sent an email to several High School students asking them to return some items they had borrowed. The morning after the email was sent, ALL the items were returned. This is a great example of what it is to be Responsible.    
Coffee with Values and Psychology:
Second Grade:
We invite all second grade parents to visit the school (Zona Norte) on Friday, January 29th at 7:45am to a Coffee with Carlos and the Psychologists. During this meeting we will talk about the contents of the Se xual Education Program that will be taught to your children, we will also offer help on how to approach this subject at home.
Fourth Grade:
On Thursday, January 21st we had a spectacular coffee with the 4th grade mothers. We are very pleased to know that we are working together to get the most out of technology, and that we are reducing the risks it also presents for our children. 
Start of STEP Program:
This week we started STEP for all areas. We are hoping that after eight weeks we’ll have 40 new families certified in this program.
Career Counseling
Last week 10th, 11th and 12th grade saw a series of presentations to understand more about the career selection process, and the existing different options to attend a university or college. Amongst the presented topics, they learned about the factors that influence to decide on a career, how to research and gather information on areas of interest, the different requirements depending on the country and the costs of education today. This presentation is pending for 9th grade, and they will receive in a couple of days.  
 
Afterwards, we handed out the results of their vocational tests from 9th to 12th grade. We explained to them that these tests help them understand their skills, aptitudes and interests; and based on these, the recommendations of professional careers are made; students must decide if they wish to find out more about the options or if they wish to keep on analyzing other options. We recommended all students to research about the careers they got, to interview professionals on the field, and to search online. The webpages we recommended were: https://www.mymajors.com , https://bigfuture.collegeboard.org , and  https://www.cacareerzone.org

You can help your children at home understand more about the careers they are interested in. Help them speak/ interview professionals of their area of interest, and help them gather information that can guide them in this search, when they must make fundamental decisions. At school, we will continue offering our students different activities, such as college fairs, career day, visits to universities, and counseling support in this difficult, yet very important process.
