Dear MET Community,
Multiple parents, through our school's Parent Council and classroom representatives, have requested that the school review its hours of operation to analyze the possibility of school dismissing at an earlier time, with the aim of avoiding peak traffic hours and alleviating our students' travel time in the afternoons.
Taking into consideration the traffic concerns we have heard from parents, we have developed a tentative schedule that we would like to share. At this time, before we proceed any further, we would like to gather additional parent input so that we can use your feedback to further inform any decision that we make. At the bottom of this message you will find a link to a google form that will allow you to provide your feedback. We will take this feedback into consideration before any changes are implemented. After we have reviewed your responses, we will make a final decision and inform all parents of the final schedule before the end of June.
Dear MET Parents,
This week we have been celebrating the arts! MET Art Week 2017 has been filled with delightful shows, performances, exhibitions, and even parades! We started and ended this week with the 6th graders parading as "Mascarada" at Monday's Flag Raising ceremony, and dancing through the halls on Thursday. Throughout the days in between we have been treated to the multitude of student talents in drama, visual arts, and music.
On behalf of the Elementary School, I would like to share my gratitude to the Fine Arts Department, Ms. Odette Versailles, Mr. Leonte Bordanea, Ms. Sandra Ramirez, Ms. Gabriela Arosemena, Ms. Juana Pino-Ramos, Mr. Cesar Castillo, and their support team of teachers for the organization, and final showcasing of student talents during Art Week! Such a week brings out the best in students at the MET. As a proud parent, and principal I have been overjoyed to see the excitement and anticipation with all of our students when they have such opportunities to shine on these occasions! Be sure to get out to the Albrook Mall this weekend to have one last tour of the art on display near the Koala entrance.
Our seniors completed their grueling Diploma Program exams this week, and will receive their results in early July. They can now enjoy a week of vacation before they celebrate their graduation next Saturday. Congratulations to all of our 36 members of the Excellent Class of 2017!
Spread peanut butter on whole wheat tortillas and add strawberries in thin slices. Peel a banana and carefully wrap it with the tortilla prepared, place in the oven for about 5 minutes, just enough to make a little crunchy the tortilla. Cut into pieces of the size of a sushi roll and serve immediately!
Banana ice cream.
When the bananas are too ripe to eat chop and freeze in ziplock bags, then put them in the food processor until you get a creamy consistency, make sure all pieces are well mixed; you can add honey if your kids like very sweet and take 1 more hour to the freezer. In separate bowl put a little coconut oil and a few tablespoons of cocoa powder with stevia to taste, mix well and once you have your banana ice cream served add this mixture on top, you'll see as it forms a hard layer of chocolate!
Cake in a mug:
Crush half banana and put in a mug, add an egg, 2 tablespoons of oatmeal or almonds, cinnamon, honey, 1 tablespoon coconut oil or almond oil, 1 tablespoon coconut milk or your choice, pinch of baking powder, pinch of salt and stir well. Put in the microwave for 90 seconds and serve with chopped strawberries or blueberries.
Slice on circles an apple, spread one side with peanut or sunflower butter, a little honey and cinnamon and cover the "sandwich" with another slice on apple.
