A School Partnership in Honduras — You're Invited...

Last year, our school began a partnership with Jubilee Centers International School in Honduras. Some of our Spanish Immersion classes at the elementary and middle school shared videos, became penpals, and communicated via zoom through this partnership.

As we continue to partner with Jubilee Centers International we would love to invite you to their Virtual Celebration Event: 'Strong & Courageous' on Tuesday, October 26 at 8:00 pm. You can join the event from anywhere as long as you have an internet connection and a screen. Once you register, the link will be emailed to you. Registration is very quick and easy. Here is the registration link: Click on “Click Here to RSVP.”
