A key priority for us at The Sierra School of Todos Santos BCS is to encourage healthy life habits for our students, including healthy eating and regular physical activity and sport. Student participation in local sports events is just another way for us to encourage mental and physical well-being. The school would like to thank and give a warm shout out to our parents community members and students who work with us to promote healthy life styles and well-being for our students. In addition, recent health and well-being workshop participants included a discussion of physical health and healthy life choices with Odile "DeeDee" Muller, physical therapist and massage therapist as well as another wonderfully relaxing meditation and stress-releasing workshop with Marimar Higgins Moreno. Thank you DeeDee, thank you Marimar, thank you parents and kids for making our school lifestyle a healthy, happy success!

A wonderful highlight from the month of February 2017, was a visit from the 8th grade students from Two Rivers School of Colorado. A special thanks to Molly Lou, our school director and Adriana Hire of Two Rivers School for helping to organize this visit! Students of both schools enjoyed geology expeditions with Dr. Marcus Johnson to better the fabulous features of local geology. Then, students from The Sierra School prepared a healthy snack / lunch for everyone for which kids from both schools had brought food. We all sat on the Casa Los Arcos front porch and had a double all-school meeting with both schools. We all sat down and all teachers, students and staff said something about ourselves. Following that, we all walked to the same beach to play capture the flag with all students. The Two Rivers students won.
I think it's really great for other schools to visit us. It's meaningful to see our similarities with other students our age, share activities and meet new friends. Sierra School students learn about other schools. Maybe Two Rivers school will one day might invite us to their school in Colorado. I really enjoyed meeting the kids and connecting with them, both when we were here inside the school as well as playing capture the flag on the beach. Next time a school comes to ours, I would like to again have a shared lunch and afternoon activities!
