From March 26-April 2nd, 12 Middle School students traveled to Costa Rica on an 8-day adventure to Latin America. Some highlights include 5 nature hikes, a visit to a banana and coffee plantation, city tour of San José and the final evening of dancing and listening to traditional Costa Rican music. The students even had the chance to camp out in the rainforest for 2 nights and saw sloths, monkeys, insects, birds and a tapir.

A special thank you to Mme Asada, Mr. Cavarroc and Ms. Loble and Ms. Gagne for helping to make this trip such an educational success.

Please stay tuned for our final radio podcast showcasing the hard work produced by our students on the trip.

Here are a few pictures from the amazing trip that the students will remember for years to come. ¡Pura Vida!

Update March 27, 2018:

What an adventurous day we had! We started our morning at Cafe Britt Coffee Plantation where we learned about coffee production and how Costa Rica has some of the best coffee in the world. The students even got to try some! We then traveled by bus with our new friends from Colorado for an adventurous journey through the mountains and volcanoes to Monteverde. We look forward to another exciting day tomorrow!

Here are a few shots from the day!
