Yes, it is officially the beginning of our celebration time! The ILC has purchased plane tickets, booked our hotel rooms, and even purchased our textbooks. We are well on our way to a "meaningful" and "relevant" trip that we will cherish forever.
Tonight's orientation was held at El Cerrito High School's library. This was our last meeting before we embark.
I have to say that tonight was extremely prouductive - we were able to cover loads together as a group and in individual breakout groups as well. Ms. Yolanda Bulls, Brown Session 1's chaperone provided each student and one parent with a binder organized with information before we arrive, schedules once there, and etc.
This summer will be the first time that each of us--including Ms. Bulls--will stay at a prestigous Ivy League school. Thus, we are all new to this and gradually adapting and learning new things daily. Cooperation is key to having a successful trip, and of course punctuality!
Thanks to everyone again for their tremendous amount of support!
