Sister Programs

A Sister School relationship was formalized in August of 2010 between the Fruita 8/9, Holy Family Catholic School, and Complejo Educativo General Francisco Menendez in our Sister City community.  This relationship encourages a spirit of solidarity within our students in the Grand Valley as they learn about and interact with K-12 students in El Espino through fundraising projects, letter and project exchanges, and awareness activities.  Each US school has adopted a high school scholarship student and carries out awareness-raising activities throughout the school year on their own campuses.

The Sister School is always in need of new or like-new school supplies and sports equipment. If you would like to donate any of these items to be taken down on our annual trips, please drop them off at the locations listed below or we can arrange to pick them up!
