Lake Placid High School Seniors Heading to Costa Rica with Spanish Club

SPANISH - MAINAn impressive Presentation to the Lake Placid School Board from two Seniors planning on a service trip to Costa Rica in April. 8 students and their advisers plan to travel to San Jose during Spring Break 2014 and stay in homes offered by members of the community there. While there, students will work on a service project building a special type of “Eco-stove.” They’ll also be donating sports equipment to families in need. While there, they’ll explore the region, hike through the forest at the national park and explore the Central Pacific Coast. The group hopes to bring back a cultural learning experience with a better understanding of the third world country, it’s culture and knowledge of the Environment and global and social issues which face the region. Jenn Lawrence is the District’s Spanish Teacher, she’ll be leading the student on the trip. The four Seniors have been taking Spanish since 4th grade and are looking forward to experiencing the culture of a Spanish speaking country first hand… The group will be raising money through different efforts including volunteering at the Lake Placid Half Marathon, Bottle Drives and other events…. The trip will cost each student $2,300..  The Zombie Run is another event that has been quite successful for the students…
