Capstone Trip to Japan!

We are working hard to get ready for the 5th grade Japan Capstone trip March 6 to 21. Our students will spend 5 days living with a host family and attending school in the Chitose region. They will also spend a week sight-seeing, visiting many educational and historical sites in Chitose and Tokyo.

In Japan the students will be working on their IB Exhibition project comparing cultures, conducting surveys on food, transportation, buildings, or the like! Many thanks to Taka for his hard work planning.  We also work closely with the Japanese travel agency IACE, as we have for more than 4 years.

Something new this year - Japanese teacher and marketing coordinator, Keiko Hoshi-Buckendahl, will be on the Capstone trip with Taka and the students. Keiko will be assisting students in the host school and also doing some research on IB connections in Japan.
