Two Student Groups Traveled to Costa Rica During Summer
Posted 09/29/2017 02:39PM

Buinger CTE Academy teacher Cathy Kazyaka led two student groups to Costa Rica this summer. The June trip had 28 people with Hurst Jr. High Principal Liz Russo and Heather Cooley of Harwood Jr. High. In July, 40 people went on a Spanish Immersion trip with guides speaking only Spanish. The July trip included Angelica Dyer of Hurst Jr. High, Jill Novelo of Euless Jr. High, and Chris Seil of Bedford Jr. High.

Both trips were adventure trips, where participants hiked through the rain forest and went zip lining, kayaking, white water rafting, and exploring throughout the country for nine days. In July, the students and their families generously donated sports equipment and school supplies for a Costa Rican school, which led to an impromptu soccer game with their students!
