All For One, One For All – Children of Puerto Vallarta in Need

Children…does that word of mere 2 syllables mean anything to you? Have we become numb to the needs of the less privileged? Well these are the important questions that we should be addressing today. The Head of Children Protection Services in Coapinole runs a great prevention program for all of those children who are under risk and this organization arranges group sessions for children every week that need help and support in any way.

This program provides sexual education to all the young girls ranging from 11 years of age to 18 who have one child or more. This program in addition to providing sex education to these young women also monitors these juvenile mothers and their respective babies. Vaccinations, hygiene matters and other health advices are provided to the 82 girls who are in this program.

The Child Protection Services also provide aid for all those children who are currently working. These children are those who are seen in the supermarkets, putting the grocery items of customers into bags. They also clean buses and sell flowers and gum to provide for them selves. Currently, there are about 146 children in this program.

There is another program, called the “10-14″ program, in it all the children range from being 10 to 14 years of age. These children are those who have been previously exempted from education or those who have never been educated. 42 children are enrolled in this program.

There are also children who are currently living without their parents under the supervision of their relatives or guardians. They are not living with their parents because they are in prison, and presently about 56 children are registered in this program.

In addition to all of these programs, there is another program called the “Kids At Risk.” These are the children which DIF believes will end up next on to the streets without any support or privilege.

All these children in Puerto Vallarta, despite being separate in different programs have one thing in common. They need your help, your support. All of these young kids are enrolled in the social services system and they are all in fact, children at great risk! These children will now be provided for and it has been decided that food packages would be granted to all of these children in need. DIF would continue working in the benefit of these children and to provide protection services to them. Bless them! So please, feel for these underprivileged children and help them. All they really need is a hand to support them and that could be YOU!

St Louis Schools Implement Mandatory Summer School for All Eighth Graders

For some time within the public schools across the nation, there has been a focus on academic achievement by improving basic skills, decreasing the high school dropout rate, and preparing students to enter both college and the workplace. The schools in St Louis have found that too many ninth graders are unprepared for the crucial years of high school. Many are so far behind in basic skills that they never catch up and eventually drop out of school. Others go on to graduate with only a meager grasp of the core subjects. These St Louis schools students are unprepared to enter college, to merge into the workplace, or even to have a successful life.

The schools believe that the key is to shore up the basic skills of the eighth graders. It is a time in a student’s educational life that can make or break their successful forward progress. The St Louis schools want to ensure eighth graders know the core subjects that are built upon in high school and to motivate these children to learn and to succeed. The St Louis schools intend to put all of their students on the path to success — not failure. This year, the schools implemented what they consider a necessary intervention — it is now mandatory for all eighth graders to attend summer school. Here, students will focus on preparing for success at the high school level. Eighth graders will be expected to achieve proficiency in the communication arts and mathematics, which are crucial to achievement and success in high school, college and the workplace.

Those eighth graders, who do not require remedial work in these subjects, will be enrolled in summer science camp. Is it any wonder that educators were looking forward to summer school with mixed emotions. There were feelings of anticipation, knowing that this move by the St Louis schools would give the students the best boost academically. Yet, there were some concerns that students and parents might rebel against the mandate. Anticipation won out as the first day of summer school arrived. Nearly 80 percent of the eighth graders were enrolled by the week before the start of summer school — that is more than 1,800 students. Many more eighth graders showed up as walk-ins on the first day. St Louis believes that summer school is off to a great start, which is a tribute to both the students and their parents. This is the type of commitment to academic growth that is truly rewarding — for the students, their parents, and the St Louis schools.
