Escuelita de Verano 2010
By Saskia Ellement and Carrie Anderson

We are proud to report another successful year of Nosara summer school arts and education program. Every year we have record breaking enrollment and this year was no exception with 220 children who attended this year’s program. Thankfully we were able to rent a bus from Empresa Rojas from Nicoya in order to provide transportation. The bus was packed full and so was the school. To make room for everyone we set up extra classrooms outside.

Our program this year included a special dance class taught by Ines, a beautiful and talented instructor from San Jose. We also enjoyed singing classes taught by Chantal, she taught the children songs in French, English and Spanish. The older children practiced karaoke with William. We learned jewelry making from Gabriela and Dianne and special art projects taught by Suzanne, Carrie and Maira. Other activities we offered this year include sports, painting, cooking, sewing, photography, arts and crafts, face painting, horseback riding, boating, lots of fun games and more!

  Escuelita de Verano is made possible by the work and dedication of volunteers and hired teachers and cooks. We have estimated that it costs about $50 per child to run the program. If you would like to make a donation or would like to be involved in next year’s program please contact us at 2.682.0585, or 2.682.5096 or check out our website: www.escuelitadenosara.org.

We wanted to thank all the shops and hotels who helped to sell the calendars. The kids made great new pictures for a next year’s calendar.

Thanks to the people who bought / sold passports and to all the people who have helped and supported us. A special thanks to all the volunteers.

THANK YOU!

Trees destroyed again…

OPINION – The tree ‘trimmers’ came 4 weeks ago to the properties behind mine to trim ‘a couple of branches’…and it makes me sad and disappointed that no thought, care, consideration, supervision, planning or basic common sense was used when the trees were trimmed. As you can see from the photo…this is just one of the trees that were basically destroyed (there are many others). More >

Letter to the Editor

Dear Editor,

I was pleased to see the “water issue” following some of the public discussions that occurred when I last visited Samara from my water starved town of Austin, Texas. I would urge developers and builders (and their deep campaign contribution pockets), to take the lead on enacting legislation at the local, state and/or federal level for mandatory low flow toilets, low flow showers, xeriscape landscaping and grey water sewage systems for all new construction, as well as for additions and any redo of existing construction that exceeds 25% of the value of the structure.
