Travel Opportunity for 8th Graders in 2015!!

Would you like your Grafton student to have the experience of a lifetime?  You can make it happen by planning ahead.  In fact, in June of 2015, that’s just a year from this coming summer, your student can have the opportunity to travel to France and Spain, experiencing the rich artistic and literary historical culture.  We will gaze out from the top of the Eifel Tower!  We will stare into the eyes of Leonardo’s Mona Lisa!  We will sip cocoa in the cafés of Stein and Hemingway! We will inhale the flowers of Monet’s garden! We will have our eyes been bombarded by lavender fields!  We will meander through the organic interior of the Gaudi Cathedral.  Art museums and classes, flight, ground transportation, hotels, most meals are all included as part of this Educational Tour.  Your students can possess all of these experiences and more, by joining Ms. Gorra-Patek and Mr. Midthun on the Grafton High School tour, “The Artists of France and Spain”, June of 2015.  Contact the Art Department for more information.  We will have a student parent meeting on Thursday, March 13 at 5:00pm, in GHS Art room D5.  Imagine your child in Europe! Please RSVP to Ms. Gorra-Patek, 376-5551 or mgorra-patek@grafton.k12.wi.us.
