March 20-24, 2017
Every other year, the 4th and 5th graders leave their families for a 5-day trip to Canada where they will discover a bilingual country with its history, landscapes and friendly people.
On March 20th, the 4th and 5 graders from our New Milford Campus left their families for a cultural trip to Montreal and Quebec with their teachers. Once they arrived in Montreal after a really smooth bus ride, they immediately started their very busy program: visits to the Notre Dame Basilica and the Archaeological Museum were followed by a stroll in the Underground City and a trip to the Huron Village, a Native American Reservation. After a two-day stay in Quebec, where they learned about its government, history and key landmarks and had the opportunity to do some shopping, our students returned to Montreal where they saw the Biodome and ate some Poutine.
The children finally returned to their home with a newly developed sense of independence and self-reliance, ready to share with their parents all the things they discovered, saw and tasted. We are already looking forward to next year’s destination
