2.Family Events

We celebrate a variety of holidays in a meaningful way for children:

            10.2.c Club Café 
Welcome Amigos International School invites parents to join our “Club Café” on a            Wednesday of every month. As a supportive and collaborative community, our desire is   to build trust and enthusiastic to bring any questions and comments regarding the school practices, upcoming events, curriculum and volunteering opportunities. We use             our topics of discussion to consider the staff and families with opportunities to assist in         making decision to the program (for improvement or changes of a given subject) or        simply to get together as a friendly community to have fun enjoying each other’s           company. Details on each Club Café meetings are sent out to parents via e-mail.
