      Hello all,

      If any of you happen to know someone who might be able to help out this
      poor
      boy, or can do so yourself, please contact Kathleen Hamberick at the
      numbers below,

      Thanks!!

      Laura Bathurst

      ----

      Late Friday afternoon SIS received a phone call from Vice Principal
      Kathleen
      Hamberick (Pacific alum) of Lodi Unified School District. She has a 14
      year
      old male student who is now in the U.S. living with his mother who has
      been
      here for a long time. The young man was left with a family in a very
      small
      village in Guatemala and can only speak a Mayan dialect that no one not
      even
      his mother can understand. I believe she said this is the village he
      lived
      in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala. Kathleen Hamberick is trying to assist
      this
      student with communication and was hoping that one of our faculty
      members
      could assist or direct her to someone who could. I guess the poor kid is
      having a real hard time not only with school but just trying to
      understand
      what is going on. She asked if someone could please contact her. I don't
      know just what to say to her or in what direction to tell her to go. If
      either one of you have some time to contact her and maybe extract more
      information or get her to someone who can assist I know she would be
      most
      grateful.

      Her contact information is (209) 331-8332 or her cell (209) 481-9921.

      Thank you
      Kitty
