É Carnaval ninguém leva a mal! Os meninos estiveram muito divertidos na escola ontem. Demonstraram muita criatividade na criação dos seus palhacitos de Carnaval! 🤡
Um bem haja especial às mães que nos ajudaram com a nossa tarefa! 🥰

Os alunos e professores da nossa escola estão de parabéns! Foi um lindo espetáculo de Natal e com a casa cheia, algo que já não se via há alguns anos. Houve poemas, cantares, presépio ao vivo e uma peça de teatro bastante engraçada escrita pelos alunos do Prof César. Um bem haja a todos que de uma forma ou outra nos apoiou. Boas Festas!

Just realized I totally forgot to post….we had another successful Magusto de São Martinho last month. We appreciate the help from Sr. Saraiva who so graciously roasted the “castanhas” that were donated by the clube Juventude Lusitana.

No mês passado os meninos da nossa escola celebraram o Dia de São Martinho com um magusto. Agradecemos ao Sr. Saraiva que muito amavelmente assou as castanhas e ao Clube Juventude Lusitana que as ofereceu. Bem haja!

The pictures say it all! Last night’s Valentine’s Day Dance at Venue 131 was a magical night full of love and joy...simply stated, it was a success. The support we received yesterday was certainly a wonderful first step in redefining our school’s mission to offer and provide students with the joys and wonders of a second language through the use and assistance of technology.

The School would like to thank of all the family and guests who took the time out of their special evening to share it with us and celebrate a night of love. It would not and could not have been as fun without you.

If we havent said it enough, we would like to thank the following: the Kitsilis family, Angelo’s Palace of Pizza/Venue 131, their employees and helpers for the wonderful food, service and support they provided us; the sponsors who gave generously to our cause; DJ Mix Master Jay (Jason Martins) for spinning the hits all night long; Alex Cardosa, Cristina Santos and Arianne Tanasio for thinking of this event and putting in all the time, energy and effort to make it happen; and Jessica Guerra for her assistance decorating the event and taking the wonderful pictures below that memorialized last night’s wonderful event.

Lastly, please continue to follow us as we continue to reinvigorate and transform our school in the days, weeks and months ahead. Until then, we leave you with the wonderful images from last night.

Thank you



Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone...May love and joy fill your day. If you are interested in attending our event some tickets are still available but they have been going fast over the past week so please don’t hesitate. Please feel free to contact Angelo’s Palace of Pizza (728-3340) to reserve your spot!

An event would not be complete without music! We want to thank DJ Mix Master Jay for his wonderful donation of time and music to the event. Your support will certainly bring joy and happiness to all the event goers this evening. THANK YOU Jay Martins!

Lastly, but certainly not least, another HUGE shout out to Angelo’s Palace of Pizza and Venue 131 for their fabulous AND gracious donation, supply of food, staff and space. You folks, along with your staff, have gone above and beyond what the school could have hoped for...not enough wonderful things could be said about you, your management (Kayla and Sara) and the rest of your staff... Although not a member of the Angelo Palace of Pizza, a thank you should also go out to Cristina Santos for her efforts and dedication to the dance. THANK YOU!

With lots of love and warmth to all of you today,
