OA hosts 30 kids from Pamplona & Granada!

With a new school year, there are always a number of unfamiliar faces. And at Adams, there were 30 new kids in the mix! This is because 30 Spanish 8th graders from Pamplona and Granada came to stay with their OA host families. For 2 weeks, they attended classes alongside their Adams peers.

Why? Because Oyster-Adams has a very special 2-week study abroad program for 7th grade! Each spring, a group of Adams students travels to Spain to spend 2 weeks living with host families and attending classes in either Pamplona or Granada. Students get to voice a preference for Granada or Pamplona, and the school takes those into account while placing them. The following Fall, the “sibling” from the host family comes to DC! Participation is voluntary, and any 7th grader in good academic standing can participate.

What did the kids have to say about it?

  • Irene from Pamplona loved EVERYTHING about the exchange!
  • Enoa from OA enjoyed shopping in Pamplona.
  • Marcos from Pamplona really enjoyed visiting Annapolis.
  • Raphael from OA said SPAIN is the best part of the exchange

¿Sabías que?

Con un nuevo año escolar, siempre hay un número de caras desconocidas. Y en Adams, ¡habían 30 chicos nuevos en la mezcla! Esto se debe a que 30 alumnos españoles de 8º grado de Pamplona y Granada vinieron a alojarse con sus familias anfitrionas de Oyster-Adams. Durante dos semanas, ellos asistieron a clases junto a sus compañeros de Adams.
Por qué? Porque Oyster-Adams tiene un programa muy especial de dos semanas de estudio en el extranjero para séptimo grado!

Cada primavera, un grupo de estudiantes de Adams viaja a España a pasar dos semanas viviendo con familias anfitrionas y asistiendo a clases en Pamplona o Granada. Los estudiantes pueden expresar sus preferencias por Granada o Pamplona, y la escuela las toma en cuenta a la hora de colocarlos. El próximo otoño, el “hermano” de la familia anfitriona viene a quedarse!

La participación es voluntaria, y cualquier estudiante de séptimo grado en buen estado académico puede participar.
