Spanish Exchange students visit EHS

Spanish Exchange students visit EHS
EHS Spanish teacher, Brittney Norman spent the 2014-2015 school year teaching English at IES Angel Corella, a high school in Colmenar Viejo, Madrid, Spain. She left there with a vision to create a partnership by means of a Spanish exchange program, allowing American and Spanish students a grander cultural experience. On Sunday, March 26, that became a reality as a group of 16 students and 2 teachers from IES Angel Corella arrived in the US, welcomed by several Edgewood host families. During their 10-day stay the students had the opportunity to attend classes at the high school with their host students on two separate days. They also took field trips to a variety of locations including downtown Bloomington and Indiana University,  Nashville, IN,  Blue Cavern Springs, Indianapolis and Louisville.  From bowling to high school athletic events, evening activities were scheduled as well, giving the Spanish exchange students a full spectrum of the American student culture.  

Check out the blog from our visitors during their stay in America. (You may need to use your device's translation tool.)

Global Youth Service Day 2016

GYSD2016
April 15, 2016 began at The Warehouse with a warm welcome from Bloomington Mayor, John Hamilton, thanking all participants for getting involved in the community and participating in Global Youth Service Day (GYSD). Monroe County Youth Council (MCYC), a project of the Asset Building Coalition, the Bloomington Volunteer Network, the Youth Services Bureau, and the Monroe County Public Library, planned their celebration of the largest service event in the world. This year marks Bloomington’s 5th year participating in Global Youth Service Day. MCYC spent the last school year preparing for this day of volunteering by exploring local issues and planning projects to meet the needs of the community. Part of this planning involved creating six different service teams; each team had individual goals for the day from kicking off the Page by Page program promoting the 40 Developmental Assets in a local elementary school, to building nature trails and removing invasive plant species. MCYC far exceeded its recruiting goal of 250 students when over 450 applied to be a part of GYSD. Ultimately, over 330 students (which included more than 90 Edgewood students) and 30 adult volunteers served the local community with nine local agency partners to make another successful GYSD. (This blog was adapted from a letter by the MCYC.)
