A Parent's Message to the Teachers - Patricia Adamo
It's amazing how much the children have learned. Many started the school years not knowing how to read, or even recognize words. They have progressed from being read to by their parents to now reading to their parents, to themselves, and to others. They are able to write and they could do some early math. As parents, we had enjoyed seeing their works on the hallways, their beautiful artwork, their interesting projects, and their very first book report. We are grateful not only for what they have learned, but how they have learned it. The teachers have provided a warm, caring and nurturing environment that was a lot of fun. The kids enjoyed learning and they enjoyed you as their teachers. I did get a chance to tack with some of the students to get some feedback on what they thought about this past year. So I am going to share with you some of their thoughts. When I asked them what they liked most about their teacher, here is what some of them said:
"I like my teacher because she taught me reading."
"I like my teacher because she gave me fun work."
"I like my teacher because she took me to field day."
"I like my teacher because she gave me extra recess."
Then I asked them what they learned the most.
One said, "I learned the most in math and reading."
Another said, "I learned the most about animals."
And this one is my favorite, "I learned to work hard."
Thank you again so much for a wonderful school year. You have prepared our children well for next year. Thank you.

President Obama has been touting a school in New York City. It is a school in Brooklyn called " Pathways in Technology Early College High School ". It is a school that offers Grades 9-14, six years of high school. It is a program that adds career or college-readiness to the United States K-12 education system. The school's additional two years are heavy on co-op and internships. Mentors from industry like International Business Machines (IBM) are part of Grades 13 and 14. Above is a screen capture of the New York Daily News http://www.nydailynews.com/new-york/education/obama-heads-brooklyn-tour-p-tech-school-article-1.1496651 When the high school graduation rate is an issue of concern, adding years to basic education must come with a strong incentive. The additional years must provide sufficient reason for parents and students to bear the additional years. For taxpayers, additional years in public schools must be justified as well. The school still has to graduate it

Hapag ng Pag-asa, Painting by Joey A. Velasco The following is an article written by Fr. James B. Reuter, S.J., originally published on the Philippine Star . HAPAG NG PAG-ASA. By Fr. James B. Reuter, S.J. The Philippine Star 04/21/2007 At the entrance of the Major Seminary of the University of Santo Tomas , in Manila , you will see a painting. It is the "Last Supper" of Joey A. Velasco. It portrays poor children from Metro Manila, all between the ages of 4 and 14, at the Last Supper with Christ Our Lord. He has called it "Hapag ng Pag-asa", the table of hope. To start with, it is not really a table. It is a big delivery box, knocked apart and nailed together again as a table. Joey Velasco himself has said: "This painting reveals a story of greater hunger than a plate of rice could satisfy. What these children are starved for is love." Realizing that his little models were real persons, he investigated the life of each of them, and wrote
