At The Sierra School of Todos Santos (in Baja California Sur), our parents are super involved and invested in making our education and school a fabulous place. All the parents of the students are involved in making our school a better place with the strongest course offering and vision possible. Zephyr Calisto Flores, mother of Aliya and Jake, worked as support teacher last year and then got accredited as an ESL teacher and now teachers IB Language B (the intensive second language courses); she is a talented gardener and manages our Stewardship project of our organic vegetable, flower and herb garden. Gregorio Flores has helped with transporation to remote places for our school camping trips. Arturo Mendoza, Emiliano's father now helps us with transporation from weekly basketball practice. Christian Kar, father of Sebastian and Bellamy, has years of experience as a youth soccer coach in The United States, he has been a coach for our soccer practices with Marco Montaña and also Lourdès Gallardo, Ana Sofia’s mother is helping with school financial matters.
Arturo Milan, father of Diego and Gustavo, a professional iron worker has built all sorts of things for our school: benches, white boards, shelving and more. He also built safety rails in our school. When my brother and I helped build the rails with my dad, we had to measure, cut, weld, polish the rails with a pinwheel, and, finally, paint them; all of this was a 1 week process of hard work. All the Sierra School of Todos Santos students hope that with the help of all of our parents, our project will grow, we will have more students, teachers and be the most famous in Baja California Sur. Students really want to thank our parents for supporting and participating amazingly in our school.
