The 2018-2019 school year is finally here! The American Nicaraguan School once again opened its doors for learning to students old and new, as classes began on August 15.
The day began with the senior parade, as the Class of 2019 happily marched through the entire school celebrating the fact that they are now seniors. They gathered on the Math Lawn, joined by High School and Middle School students, teachers, administrative staff, and senior parents. They gathered for group photos, and then, along with the entire school, sang the Nicaraguan national anthem as the flag was raised by Jenny Icaza on a new flagpole donated by the senior class.
Student leaders Pablo Lacayo and Avis Corea addressed the gathering, evoking patriotic sentiments and encouraging all tigers to make the best out of this fresh school year.
For the rest of the week, High School students participated in team building exercises every morning, to foster student unity and slowly ease into academic life after a long summer vacation. Students played games between themselves and their teachers, and the senior class replacing the senior garden with a 19 to signify who’s graduating now.
