Here are some more pictures of our students helping out at the orphanage they visited yesterday in the Dominican Republic.
Our students will bring back a lot of great memories from their trip to the Dominican Republic. Mrs. Wiseman’s summary of yesterday: “Yesterday we spent the day at the Orfanato Niñas de Cristo (Daughters of Christ Orphanage). There are 42 girls ages infant to 18 who live there. From the moment we got off the bus, the girls ran up to us and grabbed our hands to lead us inside. The administrator gave us a tour, and then we spent the day playing kickball, volleyball, basketball, and tennis with the girls. We also served them lunch and had the opportunity to make a grocery store run to buy some supplies that they needed. I was so touched to see how our students interacted with them. From cuddling babies to making leaf pies with toddlers, running with the children and letting the teens do our hair and nails, it was a great day! Some of ours had tears in their eyes as we said our goodbyes. It was a very special experience.”
Coach Christina Martin is looking for more students to try cross country. She has set a goal to establish four teams this year. If you are interested, the team meets to run at 8 a.m. on Monday and Wednesday next week. Students in grades 6th through 12th are invited.
Here are some more pictures of our students enjoying their Spanish class trip.
Some of our students are getting a great learning experience in the Dominican Republic. Mrs. Wiseman organized this trip for her Spanish class students. She is keeping us updated. The following is a description of their day yesterday. This was their highlights. Mrs. Wiseman: “We spent the day walking in Santo Domingo and exploring surrounding areas. We saw the colonial part of the city including Christopher Columbus’ son’s palace, the first cathedral of the Americas where Christopher Columbus’ remains were found (now housed in the memorial lighthouse which we also saw), Tres Ojos Caves and Cave of Maravillas which had indigenous cave drawings from the Tainos. Tomorrow we will go visit the orphanage.”
