UPDATE on Ecuadorian Earthquake Donations

Written by Mrs. Estrada

Last June, St. Pius X Regional School came together and donated 680 items to the earthquake victims in Ecuador. The 7.8 earthquake claimed the lives of over 600 people, injured upwards of 28,000 people, and displaced over 26,000 people.  Refresh your memory on this event by reading our past blog post.

Mrs. Estrada, one of our Spanish teachers here at St. Pius X, got involved with this effort when her husband, who is originally from Ecuador, got word that the Ecuadorian Embassy would accept donations and send them to the earthquake victims. St. Pius X families jumped right in to help and donated an assortment of goods.

The General Consul of the Ecuadorian Embassy, Mr. Miguel A. Carbo Bendes, sent a heartfelt letter thanking all of the organizations who took the time to donate to this important humanitarian cause. His letter, along with a translation in English, can be found on the Spanish class bulletin boards that are located in the hallway directly before the 3A classroom. While there, check out the beautiful patterns made by our students. The 5th grade did a cultural lesson on patterns in grammar and related that to the colorful patterns in the weaving designs of the Otavalo Indians from Ecuador.
