Columbus English Travels to Cuba

Columbus High school English teacher, Tracy Thompson, this summer had the unique opportunity to visit Cuba as part of a group selected by the U.S. State department. Twenty people, with professional backgrounds in education, healthcare, housing, and transportation, traveled to Havana to meet with Cuban counterparts.

The purpose of the visit was to act as a mobile focus group – to observe the social infrastructure of Cuba and ask questions about aspects of Cuban life. Ultimately, the group made recommendations for how the U.S. might support the Cuban people as our two countries open relations with each other. No small task considering the cultural, economic, and political differences we have!

Congratulations Ms. Thompson on being one of the 5 representatives selected by the department of Education to represent the US.

Casa Hogar Mission Trip

At the beginning of August 14 CCS students, and 5 adults including Columbus high school Spanish teacher Senora Kennedy traveled to Lurin, Peru. Their destination was Casar Hogar, an orphanage sponsored by the Diocese of LaCrosse. The group also visited another neighboring orphanage for young girls that suffered abusive situations. For Senora Kennedy the trip had more than one objective; she wanted students to use Spanish skills in a real world setting, and the second was for them to understand the importance of service to others. The 10-day mission trip included landscaping and painting projects for the orphanage, and spending time with the children doing various activities. For the entire group the trip truly was a life changing experience that they will never forget. They all formed relationships with the children and leaving them was the hardest part. Their hope is that spreading the word about their experience and the difference they made in the lives of the children they met will help to bring a wider understanding of the needs of others in our global society. We can all make a difference.
