International Week looking for well traveled volunteer speakers

From Tuesday, March 13th until Friday, March 16th, the French and Spanish students of Manchester Essex Regional High School and Middle School will be celebrating International Week! 

Each day, the culture of a different country is celebrated in the schools.  During these four days, students will listen to a variety of speakers from our community who discuss their personal experiences of other cultures.  Speakers talk to students about their pleasure trips to foreign countries, volunteering experiences or work related travel.  Last year, students in our foreign language classes enjoyed culturally rich presentations about Cambodia, Ireland, China, Liberia, Ecuador, Costa Rica, France, Spain and many more!

If you have traveled recently to a foreign country or regularly travel for business or volunteering and would like to share your experiences with our students, please e-mail Michelle Magaña at maganam@mersd.org.
