General Director

Colegio El Camino, a non-profit learning community, is celebrating 33 years of educational service and continues to expand its educational programs to offer them to the Los Cabos community.“Our mission is to develop honorable, inquiring and caring life-long learners with intercultural understanding and respect for others who, through creativity and a rigorous curriculum, become passionate leaders and participants in a global community”

Our school has a rich history providing quality education for people of all socioeconomic levels and lifestyles. We open our doors to the community in general but also extend our support to several low-income students. We are affiliated with the Galento Foundation that identifies talented students who need financial support. Together, El Camino College and Galento Foundation give them an opportunity to receive an education that will change their lives.

El Camino is the only bilingual and non-profit school that runs from kindergarten through 12th grade in Cabo San Lucas. At the same time, we have been awarded the lofty status an International Baccalaureate World School in the Diploma Program for high school, and as a candidate school for the Primary Years Program, avant-garde programs of preparation for university and life in the 21st century. These programs come with worldwide recognition. One of the requirements to be accredited with IB is to provide a student-centered learning environment that provides opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills in real-life situations and community interaction beyond our school.

As a private, non-profit organization, the school is self-sufficient in its operating and maintenance costs which are covered by tuition and enrollment of our students. Notwithstanding, in order to comply with our mission and continuous improvments, we require additional income, which we seek to generate in various forms, which is why we are carrying out a campaign to raise funds for the expansion of our library which will allow us to have 4 rooms which include one for reading and another for inquiry and Multimedia presentations.

Our budget for this area is $ 600,000 pesos for the expansion of the library. We are approaching our goal through resources generated by sponsorships, donations and events such as the students’ marathon on March 26th. But nevertheless, we need more resources to finish the library so we would like to invite your company to be part of our development, with a tax deductible monetary donation. This donation as a main sponsor would come with the opportunity of your company´s promotion in our school, as well as in our school newsletter, social networks and events. Details of the promotion are here.

Your generosity will make a difference in our community, allowing us to continue doing our work, and laying the groundwork for future projects as a whole.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

“Perfect friendship is that of good and equal men in virtue; For in so far as they are good, so do they want good from one another, and such men are good in themselves; And those who want the good of their friends, and are thus disposed because of these are the best friends, and are thus disposed because of what they are and not by accident; So that their friendship remains as long as they are good, and virtue is stable. ”

-Aristotle

IB Primary Years Programme

ACTION AS A RESULT OF LEARNING

The Primary Years Program (PYP) helps to enable students to acquire knowledge through conceptual understanding. The PYP helps to develop skills that respond to different needs, exhibit attitudes about their learning, environment and people, but above all act as a result of the learning process initiated by inquiry.

As the action is evidence of the learning outcome in the students, it is important that the learning community, parents and teachers, encourage, accompany and motivate students in this process.

Action is an integral part of the inquiry cycle, which students achieve during the development of inquiry units throughout the school year. Through action, students are able advance in both personal and social growth.

As a result of the transdisciplinary theme “How we share the planet”, our fourth grade students presented the initiative to commence a cleaning campaign in a local community area. During their research students focused their attention on understanding the importance of maintaining the balance of ecosystems. For this reason, a group of students accompanied by parents and teachers worked collaboratively after school to work on this process.

 


Psychology

On Friday, February 24th we hosted the Learning in Family Program with the participation of Psychologist Ernesto Salcido. He presented the workshop “How to develop socialization during childhood.”

Included below is the information on the relevant subject in the preschool age that favors sociability for a healthy coexistence.

There are a great variety of factors involved so giving a direct response is not a simple task. These are some examples:

  • Who do they live with? Is it only the mother? Maybe it’s a big family
  • If they attend school?
  • Who watches after them?
  • The relationship between them and their parents?
  • What is their place in the family?
  • If they have cousins, neighbors, or friends of the same age?
  • If they are over-protected?
  • Their own character, environment, and first year experiences.

How do we help young children to socialize?

  • From 0 to 1 year old, show them books with children’s illustrations, smile, if possible maintain contact with other babies.
  • 1 year old, if your child is relating to other child, introduce them by their name; help them to play together. Do not over react if they get in a fight, they are figuring each other out.
  • 2 years old, buy them toys that will make them interact with others, avoid removing toys abruptly.
  • 3 years old, teach them to share their toys, invite other children so they can all share their toys.
  • 4 years old teach them by example how to be solidary and respectful, they will try to imitate you looking for your approval.
  • Allow for them to be more sociable by sharing more time with classmates at home, school and field trips.
  • Make plans with other parents who have kids the same age, get together occasionally and let them play.
  • Allow for them to sleep over at friend’s houses, or have friends sleep over at your place.
  • Do not pamper them excessively; they will have problems adjusting later in other situations.
  • Teach them to approach other children with simple phrases like “may I play with you?” At first you can approach them and then they will follow your example.
  • Encourage them to participate in an afternoon activity and socialize more with other children.

We thank all Pre School parents for their participation in this workshop!
