Thank you all for sharing in the excitement over the last couple days announcing our big surprise! For those of you who were wondering, the strike in Surkhet was temporarily lifted and we've been able to run school all week. It's amazing how much better all of our spirits are when we get to come here to this place every day.
Things have been busy kicking off our first month of school. We're still waiting for a few last minute textbooks and other materials to come in and settling logistics and plans for the new year. Our teaching staff is off the hook and I'm really looking forward to introducing them. If I've done my math right, we have a total of seven new teachers! We'll also be welcoming some new administrative members to our team starting next week so we've been busy making preparations to welcome them. Nurse Emily and our visiting health expert volunteer John have been very busy bees in the clinic getting profiles, medical assessments and histories on all of our new students. We've got some big goals for the clinic and our school this year which we'll be sharing with you in the near future!
Love from Kopila Valley Kids and Team!
