Saint Augustine wrote that "the world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page." If this is so, then one group of 8th graders from Brittany Woods Middle School are well into their first chapter. Under the direction of French teacher Alexis McGeahy and Latin teacher Madelyn Roth, thirteen students along with parent chaperones had the opportunity to dive deep into the history, culture, food, and beauty of Europe on a once-in-a-lifetime spring break trip.
Plans are already underway for next year's trip, which will include Paris, Lucerne, Munich and Heidelberg, with stops at Neuschwanstein Castle and Dachau concentration camp. They are still accepting students, and travel arrangements will be through EF Educational Tours.
