Escuela Luz del Mundo

Escuela Luz del Mundo (ELM) was established to provide a Christ-centered and rigorous private education for students who normal would not be able to afford to have access to either.

[05/07/15]   ELM is closed, but I still think about all of you. I am leaving ABQ soon, but want to invite all the moms and daughters who would like to, to come celebrate with me on May 17th at my bridal shower. If you would like to come, please message me and I will get you the info! I hope you are all doing well! Love, Ms. Griffith

[10/25/14]   Don't forget to come celebrate with us at 6 pm tonight! We will be meeting at ECM at located at 123 Vermont St. NE, Albuquerque 87108

[10/22/14]   We are going to celebrate this weekend! We will be celebrating the years that ELM was open and hope to see those who have loved and supported ELM through the years or were a part of our community in some other way. If you are in town, please come eat with us and celebrate with us! Here are the details: October 25th at 6 pm. We will be meeting at ECM at located at 123 Vermont St. NE, Albuquerque 87108. Please share with anyone who is not in this group!

[09/06/14]   So, I am looking for a new home for Fury, the male axolotl that has been the school pet for the last 5 years. I am asking for $10 to cover his aquarium and food I have on hand. I wanted to open this up to the community before opening it up to the broader community.

[09/05/14]   We hope to have an event on October 25th to celebrate the 7 years ELM was open! Please mark that date on your calendars and we will let you know when we have more details! All staff, alumni, families, volunteers, and friends of ELM are invited!

[08/15/14]   ELM is officially closed. Thank you to all those who prayed. Please now begin to pray for the students to transition smoothly and for staff to find new positions. We are saddened that we had to close our doors, but trust God has a purpose in everything that has transpired.

[08/15/14]   We are making one final push to try to get new students to keep us open! Please talk to family and friends! Also, please pray!

[08/13/14]   It is with a sad heart that we announce that we are closing our doors permanently on Friday, August 15th. Due to low student enrollment (13 students), we will be unable to be financially sound. School will go forward as usual these next two days. This was a very difficult decision to come to. On the off chance our student body doubles in the next two days, we could consider a different outcome. Thank you to all families and students who have blessed us over the last seven years, and thank you to all the volunteers and donors who kept us going!

[08/12/14]   Final orientation tomorrow at 10 am! If you did not come today, please come tomorrow.

[08/11/14]   If you have nothing to do today, we could really use help at the school getting everything ready for the school year! Drop by anytime between 9 am and 4 pm to help out!

[08/04/14]   We need a math or science teacher still at ELM! The person does not have to be licensed, but must demonstrate ability and passion. This can be a full time or part time contracted position. We also need a parent liaison/Spanish teacher. This person must be bilingual and have a comfort working with parents and students. This is an hourly position for about 10 hours a week.

[07/30/14]   Have a little bit of free time tomorrow? We are looking for people to help clean and paint tomorrow (Thursday the 31st) from 4-6 pm!

[07/27/14]   The school year starts up in just a few weeks! If you want to help the school in a small way, we could use school supplies. Though we could use all of your normal supplies, we especially need: Student scissors, Teacher scissors, spiral notebooks (college rule preferred), composition notebooks (college rule preferred), loose leaf lined paper, copy paper, glue sticks, 1 to 2 inch binders, markers, colored pencils, 2 pocket folders. and dividers. Supplies can be dropped off at ELM any time between 4-6 pm this week!

[07/18/14]   We are hiring a parent liaison and Spanish teacher! We would like to offer these positions to alumni and families first before opening it up to the general public. The liaison position is about 6 hours a week and the Spanish position is 2 hours a week. This is great for students in college or as supplemental income! Please let us know if you are interested and we will send you the application requirements!

[06/22/14]   Haven't received your report cards yet? that means either we do not have the proper address on file for you, you still have books, or your account has not been cleared. You may call Ms. Miriam or Ms. Griffith to determine where you stand. Also, Ms. Griffith will be at ELM on Monday the 23rd from 9 am to noon!

[05/29/14]   Report Cards will be ready for pick up tomorrow from 12 pm to 5 pm. All books and money owed must be taken care of! If you are cleared with the school and do not come tomorrow, we will send your report cards to the address on record. Have a safe and healthy summer!
