It was such a beautiful day to take Sunny over to Escuela Vista Grande in Red Deer to celebrate our March Classroom of the Month. Señor Lopez’s Grade Four Class was nominated by a parent who wanted to give Señor Lopez a proper send off as this is his last year teaching in Red Deer. Here is what they had to say.

“Vista Grande is more than just a school, it is a community and it is the only Spanish Bilangual school in central Alberta!!! The staff are amazing and the ability for the kids to have Spanish as a second language is so beneficial!!! I would love for my daughter's grade 4 to have a pizza party to thank Senior Lopez for all he does for the kids. He is kind, generous and loves the kids. He came over to Canada from Spain 5 years to teach and sadly must return at the end of the school year!! We will miss him so much! He has been a great friend and a great teacher!”

We just had to celebrate Mr. Lopez and his class. We grabbed our gifts from all our wonderful sponsors and pizza of course, from Boston Pizza Lacombe and Ponoka. It was very tough driving all the way to Red Deer with the delicious smell of pizza filling the vehicle but we managed to do it. 

Sunny and our crew had such a warm welcome from everyone at Escuela Vista Grande. We actually think Señor Lopez’s class has been the most excited to see us so far. His crew was full of questions and comments and really loved hanging out with Sunny and even learned a couple Spanish words--like 'pizza'. They also seemed to think Sunny was quite the artist and VERY funny. They all gave him lots of hugs including Señor Lopez!

Did you know we only have two more pizza parties to celebrate this year? That means you should get your nominations in to be our next Class room of the Month!
