Students will be carrying more than just textbooks and pencils in their backpacks this summer. A group of students along with teachers Medea Bendel, Susan Edmondson, and Elizabeth Morgan will travel to Europe in the upcoming summer.

The group will depart on July 8 and arrive in Amsterdam. Upon arrival, they will join other students from around the world to form a large travel group led by an experienced tour guide. The trip will allow them to travel through six countries throughout Europe including Germany, France, and England. In addition to tasting local cuisines, they will explore numerous historical landmarks such as the Notre Dame Cathedral and Anne Frank’s Secret Annex. Two weeks later on July 22, they will return on a flight from London.

This trip serves as both an opportunity to travel to foreign countries and an immersion into new cultures. In preparation for the trip, Bendel conducts several meetings for the students to discuss their travel plans. As this is her sixth international trip with students, Bendel reflects on the lasting effect of such trips.

“Watching the students deepen their understanding and appreciation for world culture inspires me to continue to make these trips,” Bendel said.

At these travel gatherings, Bendel also helps the students get to know one another better. Allison Brewer (9) who is traveling on the trip comments on the new connections she shares with the others in the travel group.

“If I didn’t know anyone going on the trip, I wouldn’t have gone at all,” Brewer said.

Another traveler named Matt Hunt (10) remarks that Europe’s rich history and diverse community provide endless photo opportunities.

“I’m excited to go to Europe to take pictures of the different places,” Hunt said.

As the end of the school year approaches, students begin to count down the days until their departure for the adventure of a lifetime.
