Applications are now being accepted for 2019 learning adventure
In June five Carver students and two Carver teachers traveled to Costa Rica for a nine-day learning adventure. The group visited coffee and chocolate plantations, hiked along Arenal Volcano and within the Monteverde Cloud Forest and learned how Costa Rica has earned its reputation as one of the world’s most eco-minded countries.
The students put their Spanish language skills into practice as they navigated through the streets of several towns, made purchases for souvenirs and food and interacted with elementary age children at a rural school.
Senior Katana Soberano had this to say about the once in a lifetime opportunity, “Throughout the experience we were able to listen to people from different walks of life. We saw verdant landscapes, hardship and a people's love for their land, culture and heritage. We learned to appreciate small things that we often take for granted in the United States. “
Students who are interested in applying to the 2019 Carver to Costa Rica program should see Ms. Blumenfeld in Room 311 or Mrs. Stokes in Room 313.
