The Costa Rica trip is back for the 2013-2014 school year! During February vacation, Ms. Bassett and Ms. Toro will lead a group of 18 Spanish students to Atenas, Costa Rica. We will be using the company Sol Abroad to help with travel arrangements (solabroad.com).
Students will travel to Costa Rica's Pacific coast and visit one of its most famous national parks, white-water raft down the Rio Savegre, zipline in Arenal, and realax in the hot springs of La Fortuna. Half of this tour will be spent in the small town of Atenas, where students will attend language classes, play soccer and take salsa lessons with the locals, and perfect their cooking skills with their host mothers. Preference will be given to rising juniors and seniors who are enrolled in Spanish during the 2013-2014 school year.
Please see Ms. Basset for the initial itinerary with pricing. Enrollment will begin on February 4th. Students must deliver the "student enrollment sheet" and a check to Ms. Basset in room 508 to sign up.
There will be an information session for students on Tuesday, January 30, at 2:35 in Ms. Bassett's room. Please come to find out more about this exciting trip!
