“In high school, you never take field trips,” said every high schooler in the past. Now opportunities are just around the corner. This year the Spanish Club is taking the annual trip to Chicago in efforts to learn more about hispanic culture and to tour the sites it offers. On this years trip, the club will be hitting many tourist sites and learning many lessons along the way (literally).
To start off the first day in the city, the group plans on touring the Field Museum and visiting the Magnificent Mile. They also plan on getting an authentic cooking lesson in Emilio’s Dinner, eating the food made is included, but end the night with an unforgettable view from the John Hancock Observatory, where people can look out over Chicago in a full 360 degrees.
On the second day, the trip starts with some classic Latin Street dancing with a professional dance teacher. Then, they will take a trip to the National Museum of Mexican Art, and eat at Nuevo Leon before the three hour tour of Pilsen Village. Pilsen Village will allow students to study the architecture and culture of Mexican heritage, here in the United States.
Not in Spanish Club? Doesn’t matter, anyone can join! For more information visit Mrs. Johnson in room 310, and ask any of the Spanish teachers for the tentative itinerary if interested. Join in on the making of memories and don’t miss this opportunity!
