Do you know any gators who speak German? We do! The RBHS German program, and fearless leader Frau Buckliew, welcomed 21 German exchange students to Lexington, SC this week. I had the joy of attending the welcome dinner and was truly amazed by, not only the Gator Cake, but also the warmth and enthusiasm by which all of the students and their two teachers were greeted by their host families. Frau Buckliew shared a few pictures of the fun activities they are doing to get to know each other...
I can think of few better ways to gain a global mindset than by spending time with people from other countries and cultures. Many of these American students who are hosting German students will also be traveling to Germany in June. Thank you WL teachers for broadening perspectives and giving our students a chance to see the world.
