About 85 students showed up for the first day of school. Many students don’t come at the beginning because they lack shoes or books. Although these things are technically required by the Haitian Government, they are not required by the Community School of Bellevue. Education is the most important thing – shoes or no shoes! Maxo will be visiting the parents to make sure they understand that their children can come back. He believes that there might be as many as 250 coming to school this year.
In Maxo’s words ” Life becomes more and more difficult in Haiti!!!”
