Trip to the Galapagos Islands!
Watch your inbox for an email from middle school Spanish teacher, Wendy Russell, about a meeting she will have following Thanksgiving Break to discuss the possibility of a summer language trip to the Galapagos Islands off the coast of Ecuador. The meeting is to gauge community interest, propose possible dates, discuss length of travel and cost. If we move forward on this immersive travel opportunity, it will be offered to rising freshman and older who attend Journey School and Jackson Community School. If friends of students are interested, each will be considered based on available space and with a recommendation from a Journeys School parent.
