As part of our Colegio Maya traditions, we want to send our dear members of the community off in a meaningful way. Therefore, we will have a farewell assembly dedicated to our fellow Warriors that are leaving us this year on June 4th during snack time.

If you wish to deliver a speech live or film a video dedicated to someone that is leaving, please fill this form out. The live speeches/videos should not take longer than 2:00 minutes. Furthermore, if you know someone that is leaving that is not on the list, or someone that is not leaving but is on the list, please let us know (ahaeussler@cm.edu.gt or jday@cm.edu.gt).

We wish many of you who your dear friends or teachers are leaving to consider delivering a nice farewell message and sharing one last meaningful memory together!

Yearbook Photos

As our 2020-2021 yearbook is coming together, we ask for your help in collecting photos to incorporate into our publication. We have two requests for photos: 

1. Individual Portraits - This year, we have the exciting opportunity to take yearbook photos at home and submit them for the yearbook - there will be no official photos taken at school. We appreciate in advance your patience in this extraordinary year, and we look forward to your submissions. 

For instructions and additional information on submitting, please see this document

If using an iPhone, please make sure you are submitting a .JPG format picture, not an HEIC picture. (HEIC is a photo format on iPhone 7 and later, and iOS 11 and later). For help switching the format from HEIC to .JPG, please see this article or this video.


Gallery/Collage photos - At the beginning of each division in the yearbook, there is the chance to have a collage of student candid pictures from that division. We are looking for submissions of these pictures (you can use the same form for both). They can be students in their “home learning” environment, playing outside, doing sports, with pets, etc. 


** While we will be happy to accept multiple gallery photos, if appropriate Covid-19 social distancing and masking is not evident in the photo where multiple people from different families are included, it may not be included in the yearbook.


** Not all submissions will be included in the publication
