PROJEKT LA GLORIA 2013

Dear All, Happy New Year to all of you and thank you so much for your continued support of La Gloria English School. We have ended 2012 in the black, thanks to your dedication and generosity towards this school. Every year brings changes to Isla Mujeres and to La Gloria English School. This year there is a very big change for me and the School. I have decided that June 30th, 2013 will be my last day as director of La Gloria English School, so the school will be closing as of that date. The decisions to retire has been a difficult one for me. However, for family health and other reasons I have decided it is time to retire and renew the quality of my life. It was never a paid position, and because I have found no one to take it over, the school will close. (If anyone should come forward who wants to take over the operation of the school, I would be delighted to speak with them!) In truth, the enrollment has been going down slowly over the last two years. Nevertheless the current students are dedicated to learning English and will be upset to hear this news. If we stayed open, possibly the enrollment would recover in a few more years, when the international economy also recovers and brings more sales to businesses on Isla. Regarding our assets, we have sufficient funds to complete our last six months of the school year. There will be legal costs to dissolve both the U.S. non-profit Friends of La Gloria English School and the Mexican civil association (non-profit) La Gloria English School AC. If there are any surplus funds, we hope to offer full scholarships to our students for our last course, April through June. If there is a surplus after that, we will donate to PEACE-Isla Mujeres. They have been strong supporters of our school and continue to do great things to help local people on Isla Mujeres. The U.S. non-profit associated with them is PEACE MEXICO. I can't thank you enough for your generous support, in volunteering at the school and donating to help continue the operations through our nine years of existence. I appreciate deeply your commitment to the school and to the people of Isla Mujeres. (For those of you who are also participants in the separate 'scholarship program' for getting/keeping local kids in high school and college through financial assistance, we will continue that project.) Best regards, Maggie Washa
