Raffle Fundraiser Highlights

Just another way we promote healthy life habits at The Sierra School of Todos Santos BCS is that traditional end-of-term hike teachers and students so enjoy. This time, we walked down La Cachora Road to Punto Lobos at the beach. April 7th was a super fun adventure with spectacular desert and Pacific Ocean views here in Todos Santos. Students had a great attitude during our hike, even if they were tired after our long half-term. The day was unforgettable with a pause and games and lunch at La Posa. The hike ended in a well-deserved ice cream at La Paloma and everyone wishing each other a fabulous Semana Santa spring break.
Con la idea de fomentar las buenas actitudes con una Tradición Escolar más al término de cada periodo; nuevamente se realizó la Caminata Estudiantil iniciando en esta ocasión de “La Cachora” con destino a la Playa “Punta Lobos”, una aventura divertida con aprendizaje de nuestro espectacular desierto y vista del mágico océano pacífico de Todos Santos, B.C.S. Los alumnos tuvieron oportunidad de conocerse aún más, realizando diversas actividades recreativas y haciendo de un día quizá cansado pero inolvidable y divertido. Hubo la experiencia de llegar a un punto alto del Cerro de la Posa, para descansar y disfrutar de una hermosa vista donde se reflexiona sobre el camino en nuestras vidas, ejemplificando con la caminata; quizá rigurosa pero al final con una gran recompensa lograd:, la divertida convivencia grupal y el disfrute de una rica nieve para desearles unas felices vacaciones de Semana Santa.
