8th Grade Service Trip to Puerto Rico

SATURDAY, APRIL 12 — FRIDAY, APRIL 17

Using the money raised during its sixth year pizza business (and with a little extra fundraising) the eighth grade class will be traveling to Puerto Rico from April 12-17. While in Puerto Rico, WMS students will be visiting Casa de los Ninos, a Montessori school in Fajardo, where they will be teaching English to the school’s youngest students and working collaboratively with the middle school students at the school. The class will be staying at Camp Elisa Colberg, a Girl Scout camp located right in El Yunque, Puerto Rico’s sub-tropical rain forest. While in Puerto Rico, they will spend two days planting trees to ward off invasive species. They will also have time to explore Old San Juan and the island’s beautiful tropical scenery. Lauren, Theo, Elizabeth, Tom and Jared will all be going on the trip.
