News from the Exchange Students in Foxborough, Massachusetts

ASV Students spent their first week at Foxborough Regional Charter School as part of the Global Student Exchange Program 2016. On Sunday, they had time to rest after the long flight and on Monday they were welcomed with a special breakfast with their exchange peers.

As FRCS students visited ASV in February and had some information about Fallas, the group decided now to recreate this popular festival performing an art workshop. ASV students were also invited to attend a leadership workshop addressed to the FRCS Student Council and this coming week they will enjoy some days off as the Foxborough community has the April Vacation Week.
