Dedication of Special Education Classroom 

Members of the CUPS board recently attended the dedication ceremony of a special education classroom at the USAER 95 school in the Colonia Arco Iris in Valle Hermoso. CUPS was a major contributor in building this new classroom along with other groups including parents, Valle Hermoso politicians who helped with the tile floor and the school's principal who donated an A/C unit. Attendees were met by teachers, students, and the principal, followed by photos, dancing by students, and a wonderful tamale lunch.  There was a ribbon cutting ceremony at the door to the new classroom shown below. Cubicles still need to be added to the classroom but the students are grateful to have such a nice room for their classes.



Project Work Remains Strong


Fidencio continues to remain busy with projects funded by CUPS and supported by the local communities. CUPS recently completed the Guadalupe Victoria shelter and Empalme Clinic roofed shelter. In addition, Fidencio has scoped out a new project at the JN Carmen Ramos del Rio school. Board members were able to visit the site during the recent trip for the dedication of the classroom. The school wants to build a small shelter at the entrance gate to the school.  This would be about 10 ft. x 16 ft., with 4 walls and 2 doors, and would just be used to shelter students from cold weather or rain when parents drop them off or pick them up after school. Your continued support of CUPS make all of these projects possible.
