Central Europe 2016
During spring break, 45 students and
4 teachers took a remarkable journey through Central Europe. Their itinerary
included Germany, Austria, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, the Netherlands and the
Czech Republic. They summited Mount Pilatus in Lucerne, took a canal cruise
through Amsterdam, visited castles and monuments and enjoyed some of the finest
chocolate and cheese in the world. The focus of this trip was on modern
European history as the students learned about such things as the horrors of
World War 2 in Dachau, the Cold War in Berlin, and legacy of the Habsburgs in
Austria. The group would like to acknowledge the hard work put in by Mr.
Carlson to make this trip happen. For more details on the experience, please
