Update from Holy Cross

Welcome to another jam-packed newsletter from Holy Cross School. We are delighted to bring you these stories from the last busy - and chilly - few months here in San Pedro, Belize.

We'd also like to thank all those who have visited us, donated to support projects and students and continued to tell others the incredible story of our little school.
Volunteers and visitors help out
St Luke's Episcopal Church
Every February, a team from St. Luke's Episcopal Church in North Carolina returns to Holy Cross to assist in many ways including tutoring, medical checks, painting and surveying the heights and weights of our students.

They have also sponsored various students over the years, students who are now graduating, continuing their studies through to university and starting families of their own. This year's visit gave a glimpse into the many lives they have touched.
Visitors repaint library
You don't have to be part of a church team to make a difference, as a group of holiday makers proved. They toured the school four years ago and returned last week, giving up two days of their holiday to repaint our library in vibrant tropical colors.
Dentists have returned to Holy Cross! Our first dentists this year are Dr. Roggow and the Dental students from Minnesota State University.

Thank you for your help.
Bliss Out in Belize Yoga
Belize is a popular destination for Yoga retreats. One visiting yoga team wanted to pass their skills on to the local community. They visited our upper division students to teach breathing and relaxation skills.
St. Valentine's day fair fun 
Every year we hold a St. Valentine's day fair to raise money for our feeding program. It's a fun day for the students to play games, eat great food and have fun with their friends.

Improving Technology
We have a new Facebook page
We've finally taken the step of updating our Facebook page from a group to an organization. Please click and join our new page now to keep up to date with the many day to day stories of life at Holy Cross Primary School. Thank you!
Shop our wish list on Amazon
Amazon may not be a thing in Belize, but we've heard it's kind of a big deal everywhere else. So to make donating supplies even easier, we've set up our wish list on Amazon Smile. You'll see exactly what we need. If you sign up for Amazon Smile you can buy anything on the Amazon site AND Amazon will donate 0.5% of the value of your purchase to Holy Cross. Take a look now!
Thank you for taking the time to read this newsletter and keeping up to date with what we're doing. And thank you for your ongoing support and interest.

As always, if you know of anyone coming to Belize, please mention our name. We love visitors and would gladly give them a tour and introduce them to our amazing little school.

Enjoy the spring.
