Our school is sending a delegation of teachers and students to Japan for the fifth time. Mr. Bantz, Ms. Minckler, Ms. Binaso, and the nine student participants will all experience a homestay experience. During the day, the group will participate in school visits and cultural activities such as a traditional dance lesson. One of our students, Cheyann, will actually live in a Buddhist temple for 9 days. Her host father is the priest who runs the temple. Please look out for daily reports and pictures about our travels.
