Dear Parents, Students, and Friends:
Welcome to the blog for the upcoming Traveling School semester to Central America!
This blog will be a place to read updated notes from students and teachers as we study and adventure through Guatemala, Chiapas, El Salvador and Nicaragua. This blog will be updated with a variety of information. The teachers will provide academic updates for each class, as well as updates on academic activities, outdoor adventures and beautiful cultural interactions. Students will also update this blog throughout the semester. They will share their experiences through their own words.
The teachers (Jen, Heather, Caroline and Liz) and Gennifre and Jennifer have been setting the groundwork for your adventure, and we are all very excited to meet everyone in Houston!
While in Houston we will begin the process of building the TTS21 community, getting to know each other and preparing for our flight south. Some parents will be joining us in Houston, some will not. For those of you who will not be there, we will send updates on the blog and pictures from orientation. Regarding communication, when we land in Guatemala, Jennifer in the home office will send an email update. For the first few weeks, students will be out of phone communication, however the home office will keep you updated.
Once again, we are all very excited to meet you and to begin our adventures together! A quote for the beginning of our journey: "A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step." -Lao Tzu
Enjoy your holidays - our office is closed 12/24 - 1/2 for the break - and then we will be back in action and beginning the official countdown!
See you soon!
