MECC holds culture assemblies to learn about various cultures. This week, students learned about Guatemala. Local Guatemalan moms and daughters provided a presentation that shared their Awakateco language, handmade goods, songs, and customs. Our MECC students and teachers learned the oral differences between numbers, vowel sounds, and words in Awakateco, Spanish, and English. We thank Mrs. Burgherr Shell for organizing a fantastic multicultural experience for all!

Our GO CAPS students are ready to take on their first community project of the year! After their first official Project Pitch from Brett Heman, Chamber of Commerce Director, the students are energized and full of ideas. Since the pitch, students have gathered their thoughts and presented their ideas to local business leaders. Business leaders from diverse industries graciously stepped in to support students with an external viewpoint and guidance. Additionally, it's a golden opportunity for business partners to familiarize themselves with the diligence and dedication of our students. It serves as a platform where business partners can witness the GO CAPS experience in its true essence.
