We are excited to announce our May 2017 Travel and Family Stay in Spain and France!
At the end of the school year we will take a group of students to Madrid for several days. Then students will split into language groups. Spanish students will spend several days living with a family in a town near Barcelona and French students will do the same in Narbonne, southern France. Students will go to school, do a field trip with us, and live everyday Spanish / French life. Finally, we will join up to spend several days in Paris. You'll see more details in the attached pdf. We will travel with the organization Language and Friendship.
This is a fabulous opportunity to speak French or Spanish, see beautiful monuments and museums, and experience the culture through your host family. It's a great chance learn about others, learn about yourself, and have fun!
Students who have completed grade 8 or above by May, have a strong teacher recommendation, and at least two years of the language are eligible.
Some scholarship money is available through the company. The first payment is due in mid-October.
The first parent /student meeting will take place right before upper school curriculum night, August 31 at 4:45 in Room 18. If you cannot make it then, please contact me, Amy Clashman (firstname.lastname@example.org), or either of the Spanish teachers.
We look forward to telling you about this fantastic trip!
