School's Out for Summer!

The school year in Guatemala runs from January to October, so today is the very last day of school at NPHG. Can you believe it???

The kids have pure vacation these next few weeks, and then they take Cursos de Verano (summer courses) in November. For kids who need to make up failing grades, they take real classes during this time, and everyone else takes fun classes -- like jewelrymaking. When December arrives, it's the Christmas season, so kids who can go home to their families leave the house for three weeks. Everyone comes back right before New Year's, and classes resume in January.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves. For now, WOOHOO!! NO MORE SCHOOL! :)
