Emerald Connection, May 7, 2024

Back on the Emerald Campus and watching the snow fall, it is hard to believe that our recent classroom backdrop was a tropical forest complete with morning wake up calls from a roving band of Howler monkeys. I imagine the memory of Costa Rica and the Pura Vida will be ingrained in our minds and the eighth graders for years to come. And for good reason—we packed in a ton of learning and experiences during our week-long sojourn. From visiting villages and local schools to learning about the regions’ rich biodiversity and cultural heritage, the trip delivered and inspired. As for our eighth graders, it was a fitting finale to an action-packed year and middle school experience. As trip leaders it was inspiring to watch the ease of their collaborations and the joy they brought into all they experienced. This was certainly a special trip for everyone involved, and one we will all remember for the rest of our lives.
