8th Grade Language Immersion Trip

We are thrilled to announce the 2020 GLOBE Academy Eighth Grade Language Immersion Field Trip. From May 7-10, 2020, our Eighth Grade class will have the opportunity to take an educational field trip to Concordia Language Villages in Minnesota for a full language and cultural immersion experience.

 

The Concordia Language Villages are designed to inspire courageous global citizens and develop cultural and language fluency through activities and sports, games, arts and crafts, singing and dancing, authentic meals, and conversation with fluent speakers of the language.

 

 

 

As this trip is directly connected to GLOBE’s mission, all program expenses will be covered by the school. Parents will be responsible for travel expenses and miscellaneous fees, not to exceed $550. These fees will include airfare, baggage, ground transportation in Minnesota, as well as 2 lunches on the road, and a school t-shirt designed for the trip.

 

Important Deadlines:

  • October 7, 2019 - Due date of non-refundable deposit of $75 to secure your student’s spot on the trip
  • April 1, 2020 - All trip fees due.

 

If you are interested in helping out with fundraising activities, please contact Melanie Marks, melaniemarks@gmail.com.

 

Families in need of financial assistance should contact Judy Limor, Assistant Head of School, at jlimor@theglobeacademy.net. All requests will be kept confidential.

 

Further information about the GLOBE 8th Grade Educational Trip will be sent directly to parents.
