A FROM-THE-FIELD EXCLUSIVE FOR AMAYA-FAMILY SPONSORS
AMAYA ACADEMIC CHAMPIONS
Every child needs a champion: someone in their corner, cheering them on, urging them to give their all. It may be most critical with academics, where the pressure to achieve can leave kids feeling overwhelmed. Orlando and Elsy Amaya have found a special way to inspire and support their children as they’ve prepared to take their third quarter exams at Academia La Providencia — their bilingual school has high academic standards and requires the best of the kids.
So, the Amayas let the kids know that at the end of the stressful exam week, they would have a special time as a family to celebrate their dedication. That Friday, they headed out to the treehouse in the evening, having a family picnic for dinner under the stars. They munched on sandwiches and chatted about their challenges, reveling in the moment with their parents, and gathering strength for the final marking period of this year.
