New kid on the block
This is Michlen. He's 12 years old. He is from Tomasin and last year, Dr Bernard was sponsoring him to go to school for the first time but he failed first grade. So this school year, Dr Bernard has brought him down to Bolosse so he can attend Marion G Austin, our school at HFC. He is repeating first grade and he spends the days at the boys' house with them. He spends the nights chez Mme Lazar, a mother in our neighborhood who already has a student at our school. I have not spent enough time at the boys' house to see how he is settling in, so more update on him in the future.
