A message from our Head of School

Greetings Lions,
May the Grace of our Lord be with you!

Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year. We are glad that you are joining us as we embark on an exciting year of spiritual growth, teaching and learning at MI-EL Christian School. We are thrilled to see you all together back in school as we return to five full days of in-person instruction after more than one year of virtual learning and a month of hybrid classes. 

This year we renew our commitment to excellence in all that we do, as we seek to please God by providing quality instruction with the expectation that all students can learn and succeed. The first weeks of school we will focus on assessing students’ abilities in order to respond to their current needs and we will continue to promote strategies that engage our students in an active, collaborative, and significant learning processes. 

A major initiative for this year is to internalize and get familiarized with our revised mission and vision, as well as to enforce our Student Expected Outcomes (SEO), which will positively impact student’s academic performance and character. We look forward to partnering with you to instill in our students the love for the Word of God and to enhance their development as global citizens who practice transformational leadership. 

We understand your concerns regarding safety measures to continue avoiding the spread of COVID-19. We are adhering to the guidelines of what the President and the Minister of Education have said so far that classes must be in school. In this sense, we are doing our best to keep the biosecurity measures during the school routine regarding mask use, room ventilation, hand sanitization, and temperature check. As for distancing, we have placed the seats with the greatest possible distance. As a team, we will continuously be supervising our students in the different areas. Please read the Pedagogical Guidelines and Biosecurity measures for inschool modality. We trust that we will be able to press forward with God’s help and if there is something to rectify according to the guidelines of our authorities, we will do it as we go.

We will also abide by the Student-Parent Handbook which contains the norms for stakeholders interactions that will help us to develop habits and behaviors according to the guidelines of the Word of God, based on the model of Jesus.

I look forward to building relationships with all stakeholders throughout this year and I encourage you to become active members of the PTC and the MECS family. 

Warm greetings,

Olga Salcedo 
Head of School
