Our visitors are on their way!

Our ten student student-visitors and two teachers from St. Peter's School in Barcelona are on their way!  First stop, three days in Manhattan.  Language arts teacher Sarah Biondello will meet them at the airport and accompany them to museums, sightseeing and Spiderman.  On Sunday afternoon they will take the train to Albany where Parker families will meet them at the train station as they begin their home stays.

Students will attend classes for the week with their Parker sixth and seventh grade counterparts.  Special events: Welcome Assembly on Monday; potluck supper after school on Tuesday; field trip to the Capitol and State Museum on Wednesday; Bowling party on Thursday afternoon; Spring Sing and farewell party on Friday.  Students will spend the day with Parker families on Saturday and head home Sunday, March 24.  A whirlwind week for everyone - and a wonderful opportunity for cultural exchange, language practice, and new friendships!  Read more...
