Students and Teachers in Spain June 2016
Seven students and two teachers traveled to Sevilla and Granada in June. View their trip through their blog RiverwoodSpain.we​ebly.com  and social media: 
Twitter (@RiverwoodSpain​) and​ Instagram (RiverwoodSpain). 

The trip​ hashtags are ‪#‎RiverwooddoesSpain‬ and ‪#‎gnomeo‬. Look for glimpses of Gnomeo, the Raider mascot gnome, throughout the trip photo journals, too. 

Generally, the students attended structured classes each morning and, after lunch, experienced Spanish culture through various group activities throughout the city. The students lived in private homes for most of the trip and benefited from full language immersion during their home stays. In addition to student fundraising during the school year, which netted around $200/student, the Riverwood Foundation generously contributed funds toward the trip.

Summer Parking Information
Students attending summer workouts will need to park in the front lot near the tennis courts. The access road by the stadium will be off limits to ALL traffic. Parents may​ drop off and pick up their students by the main gym entrance.
