  • The International School of Paris, ISP, Supports The Sierra School of Todos Santos!

    ISP, an International Baccalaureate World School that celebrated its 50th anniversary this year, is supporting the creation of The Sierra School of Todos Santos and our scholarship mission. ISP third graders, Zoe D and Jaime F, wrote persuasive letters to their families encouraging donations to our online campaign. Generously contributing 20€ to our scholarship mission, Jaime is the youngest donor so far. Muchisimas Gracias, dear Jaime!

    As part of their unit of inquiry on community organisations, more enterprising ISP third graders, Finn, Arvid, Sasha and Jonathon held an after school bake sale and raised 65€ euros for our campaign! 

    ISP featured news of The Sierra School creation on their website and ISP headmaster, Simon Murray, encouraged ISP community members to contribute to the Sierra School scholarship mission. Thank you Pablo Zoido, of the OECD, and head of the ISP board of directors, for setting such a generous precedent for family donations! Thank you ISP teachers and staff members who have contributed at least €1,000 euros to our campaign! You are right, Mr. Murray, schools should support other schools! Because children in Todos Santos, Mexico deserve an IB education, just like children at the International School of Paris.

  • A celebration of our first crowdfunding victory !

     

    In a summery garden gathering of international friends, we hosted a Fiesta Mexicana celebrating our first crow funding victory for the creation of The Sierra School of Todos Santos. For our gordito dinner, we ate Mexican style: beef, rice and bean burritos, topped with chopped tomatoes, peppers, cheese and home made guacamole. ¡Estaba muy sabroso! Our fiesta mexicana was a perfect occasion to share more about The Sierra School. Molly Lou gave a short, thank you speech, noting pedagogical, logistical, financial and cultural elements of our school creation. Here's a little video.

     

  • Gratitude!

    Phenomenal, big believers, thank you, un énorme merci, muchisimas gracias! 

    In just eleven days, thanks to your extraordinary generosity, we have reached our baseline goal! We have achieved this goal together and we are more than immensely grateful for your donations. With your gifts of belief and support, we will be able to equip our school for our first class of 6th-7th graders and open our doors on September 21, 2015. We will be able to purchase first year teaching and learning materials for our English / Literature, Spanish language, literature, Mexican history and geography course, our ecology course and our maths class. Your gifts of support will enable us to acquire the foundational books for our learning library, and more!

    It takes more than a village: your gifts have streamed in from Todos Santos, Mexico, Homer, Alaska--my beautiful and exceptional home town, Anchorage, and Fairbanks, Alaska, Washington state, New York City, San Francisco and Eureka, California, Paris, France, Bordeaux France, from all over France for that matter, and from Sri Lanka! 

    Thank you for meeting 100% of our goal for our first year creation costs! 

    We will keep this campaign open and will continue to solicit new donors to help us raise more money for scholarships.

She looks forward to getting involved in our organic school garden. Aliya's family has a plant nursery in Todos Santos: La Terra Generosa. Aliya's parents are also actively involved in the Todos Santos Montessori school, where Aliya has attended from preschool through fifth grade. Aliya speaks English, Spanish and loves learning French. Aliya is truly grateful for her tuition waver-scholarship to The Sierra School. We proudly invite you to help underwrite Aliya's scholarship and further the education of an exceptionally promising, curious, generous and committed student.
