It took a long time to get the five kids registered, placed and starting school. By the time the day came, they were so excited! Organizing the logistics of 5 kids at three different schools in three different quadrants of the city was a feat. After a few months, we were able to arrange bussing and soon the family settled into a rhythm of getting to and from school each day with more ease. School has been a much needed structure, a way to learn English and a source of social integration for everyone, including the parents who are attending classes at Columbia College.. The family highly values education. They are bright, motivated and keen to learn.
