BENEFITING: FRIENDS OF THE AMIGOS SCHOOL INC
EVENT DATE: Sun. December 2 @ 9:30am
THE STORY: Will you help us ensure that every 8th grader at the Amigos School is able to attend their class trip to New York City regardless of income? The Amigos School is a diverse Spanish / English dual immersion public school in Cambridge, MA. We celebrate our student's bilingualism and biliteracy with an 8th grade capstone trip to New York City. For three days and two night, our 8th graders explore the cultural heritage of different Hispanic immigrant groups through museum visits in Spanish, a trip to Spanish Harlem and to the theatre. They enjoy a salsa lesson and of course they savor some Latin American food. The kids are planning all kids of fund raising events including a 5k run, a bake sale, on line auction, leaf raking, snow shoveling, babysitting... Please support their efforts and help then make this trip a reality for ALL our students!
