Progress Report – November 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The main theme of November is thanksgiving. For you, our American friends and partners, it is obvious – Thanksgiving has been your national holiday for more than a century. This year’s celebration was perhaps different because you were not able to meet your families and friends as usually; more vacant spots around tables and more leftover turkey for sandwiches. It was hard to see your loved ones only through a screen. However, there are still multiple things we can be thankful for. Continue reading

War Veterans Remembered

The Lutheran Elementary School students used art to thank war veterans for their service. They did so to commemorate Veterans Day which is annually observed all over the world on November 11.

The symbol of the red poppy flower, which became associated with this day, was used for the first time in a poem by a Canadian doctor John McCrae who had fought in Flanders (Belgium) during WWI. Even though McCrae served as a brigade surgeon, he could not reconcile himself to seeing his patients suffer. Writing poetry became a remedy to his pain. In one of his poems, McCrae described bright red poppies which grew on the places where the fallen soldiers had been buried. Afterwards the red poppy flower quickly became a universally recognised symbol of war veterans. Nowadays people of different backgrounds and nationalities who want to remember those fallen in war conflicts wear a poppy on November 11. Continue reading

Progress Report – October 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Last month was hard on our school. September was still OK, even the COVID-19 virus was closing schools and businesses around us. Starting in October, all Slovak high schools had to switch to online education because of the government order. Shortly after we had to close the kindergarten and then the secondary school (grades 5-9) because several teachers, administration staff and students there were COVID positive. The kindergarten resumed normal operation by last week of October, while the secondary school and high school students remained online nationwide. The elementary school is the “Last of the Mohicans” that has enjoyed old-fashion education since September without interruption.
