RSI Celebrates Dia de los Muertos!

Outside the Box – Christy Johnson
Students at the Renascence School International celebrated a Latin holiday, Dia De Los Muertos (Day of the Dead) on November 1st. The students learned that this is not a time to fear, but a time of remembrance for the generations before us and for those who are no longer with us.
There are four things that the Latin culture uses to remember their loved ones: Foto (photo), Vela (candle), Flor (flower) and Altar (altar). Some teachers had an ofrenda memorial set up in their classrooms and students enjoyed a variety of crafts based around this special holiday! Read More

Preparedness is one of the keys to staying safe! The administration and teachers at the Renascence School International are doing everything they can to ensure the safety of their students in case of the event of an earthquake or fire.

RSI participated in the nationwide earthquake safety drill on Oct. 18th and a fire safety drill on Oct. 11th. The teachers were able to practice the emergency procedures that they have been trained to perform, while remaining calm and setting a good example for the students.The students did a great job of following directions while remaining calm and listening to their teachers. When all parties were cleared, the teachers brought all students to the safe zone. The drills were successful and both teachers and students are now better prepared for different types of emergency situations. Read More
