In celebration of Arbor Day on June 15, Abriendo Mentes collaborated with the Potrero public school, Villagio, Sugar Beach Hotel and Bahía del Sol Hotel in planting nearly 100 trees around Potrero.
The children were invited to take a break from their regular classes to learn about the significance of trees in Guanacaste. The trees, which were donated by the Costa Rican Tourism Board, included lemon, bitter orange, nance, yucca, cedar, jícaro and almond.
Congratulations to the recent graduates at Gold Coast Learning Center: Dorian Godfrey, Alexandra Godfrey, Elizabeth Guton-Bunn and Raul Fernández. Dorian is going to Palm Beach Atlantic University in Florida, Alexandra is going to Evangel University in Springfield, Missouri, and Raul is attending Santa Barbara City College.
Recent graduates from the Country Day School include Alana Eitman, Morgan Osborn and Amber Rashia. Alana will attend University of Tampa, Morgan Florida Atlantic University and Amber the University of California at Davis. We wish you the best and brightest future!
