For many years, ISP’s Elementary School has made it a tradition to collect school supplies for our sister schools, Gabriel Lewis Galindo, (Las Trancas) and La Mesa, El Valle. Gabriel Lewis Galindo School is a public elementary school located very close to ISP. Over 400 local children attend grades pre-kinder through 6th grade in morning or afternoon shifts. La Mesa in El Valle has 40 students in pre-kinder through 6th grade who attend school in the mornings.
Our collections will be focused during Spirit Week as we seek to share our ISP spirit with the wider community.
Members of the ES Student Representative Council will visit Las Trancas and all of 4th grade will visit La Mesa and deliver these donations at the beginning of the Panamanian school year in March.
We are asking students to write small notes or draw pictures of encouragement, motivation, and/or good luck for the new school year to be delivered with the supplies.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a member of the SRC.
