PUERTO VALLARTA, MEXICO
Alma Yates recently went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to bring school supplies to a small town elementary school. The school has 74 students spread across grades 1-5 and two teachers. Many of the students do not have school uniforms to wear because the district did not have any available or the students grew out of their old one. Alma coordinated with the school director to get them new school uniforms.
Colt also purchased many basic school supply items such as pens, pencils, paper, colored pencils, scissors and glue for the students. In addition, one of the thing the teachers asked for was a printer, so they could print out worksheets and activities for the students.
Colt Builders would be thrilled to return in the next school year and provide the children with some recreational equipment such as a slide, see-saw, monkey bars and soccer nets and balls, as well as updating some worn out school supplies for both the students and teachers.
