The first annual Nuestro Mundo Puma Pounce and Bounce held on Saturday, May 27, 2017 was a wonderful success!  The community-building event brought together the school, neighborhood, and supporters of Spanish/English dual language immersion together in a festive atmosphere.  In addition, it was a successful fundraiser garnering nearly $4,500 for Nuestro Mundo Community School.  These funds will help provide field trips, books, and enrichment activities for our students at Nuestro Mundo Community School.

And a HUGE thanks to John Curtin, Beth Esser, Melody Niwot, Erin Cimino-Huesca, Michelle De Leon, Jeremy Beloungy, Carolina Castellanos, Bree Soenksen, Christine Curley, Angela Uecker, Derek Peterson, Dana King, Libby Meister, Althea Dotzour, Josh Forehand, Anamaria Peralta, Lucia Naxi, Valerie Klessig-Palm, John Wheeler, and Gina Nolan for all of their planning efforts!  And it could not have happened without so many more families who volunteered at the event, including our DJ Zuri Ramirez and photographer Romula Morishita/Ueda Photography.

Mark your calendars for next year-we hope to have the 2nd Annual Puma Pounce & Bounce on Saturday May 19, 2018.
