Seven students and two parents from BDCHS recently embarked on an unforgettable trip to France, Barcelona, and Madrid. During their travels, they had the opportunity to visit some of the most iconic landmarks in the world, including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre Museum, the Arc de Triomphe, La Sagrada Familia, Camp Nou Stadium, Parque El Retiro, and the Royal Palace of Madrid. In addition to sightseeing, our group had the pleasure of dining with a local host family during their stay in Paris, providing a unique cultural experience and a chance to immerse themselves in French cuisine and customs. Thank you to Ms. Caraballo for coordinating this amazing trip for our students!
