The parents of the Centro Comuntario Otoch Paal Montessori want to introduce themselves, and to let you know about our wonderful school. Otoch Paal is a community school financed by donations and parent work-share whose student body is mostly the children of Akumal pueblo. We all know that education can change a life, especially around here where knowing English and other languages can make the difference between a life of poverty and one of comfort. For the past two years, Otoch Paal has offered education to older children at the 1st and 2nd grade level. The goal is to continue growing the school, eventually offering education to children aged 2 to 12 years.
Despite the fact that the educational level of the 1st and 2nd grade classes are comparable to any private school in Mexico, they are currently under the threat of closure due to lack of classroom facilities.
As parents, the education of our children is our priority, and we are do not want to lose our excellent school here in Akumal. That is why we are asking you to help build an additional classroom for our community school.
Anything you can do will be appreciated. We have a huge task ahead as we need to have the building underway before July 30 this year. It is a tough deadline, but with your help we can do it! Please donate on our Web site where we have a direct link for tax-deductible U.S. dollar donations.
Or if you would prefer, you can visit the school and donate either money or materials directly. We need everything from concrete and blocks to toilets and electrical fixtures.
To arrange a visit, e-mail.
