Last week, thirty-three students joined ten faculty members and their families for our annual interdisciplinary trip to Provincetown to experience the history and beauty of Cape Cod. The group explored the tidal flats, enjoyed an afternoon of whale watching, and visited the historic Pilgrim Monument.
Thank you, Mr. Sahl, for organizing this incredible trip and creating this great video!
Last week, Mr. Pachniuk, Mr. McGrath, and a group of Oxford students returned home with fantastic photos from this year's 9-day international trip to Spain. The group explored the streets and buildings of Toledo, Segovia and Madrid. Highlights of this comprehensive trip included a day in Segovia with its enormous Roman Aqueduct. They spent a day in Toledo with its spectacular Gothic Cathedral, an excursion out to El Escorial with its tombs of Spanish Monarchs then journeyed through the Royal Palace in Madrid. In preparation for this excursion, all attendees took part in history seminars for a rich understanding of each city. Thanks to Mr. Pachniuk and the Students Love travel group for this spectacular adventure!
