Paris, Normandy and Brittany

My name is Joseph Arnold and I teach French at the Heritage Laveen campus.  I am so excited to announce that I am leading an educational tour to Paris, Normandy & Brittany in March 2020 for high school age students from each of the four Heritage Academy campuses.  It will be a 9 day experience over Spring Break.  Some of the highlights include: The Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, the Louvre, Versailles Palace, D-Day beaches, the American Cemetery in Normandy and the Mont St. Michel!

To take a look at the itinerary, you can visit our trip’s personalized website at: http://www2.educationaltravel.com/Arnold-2616

I’ll be hosting a meeting to go over the trip details and the benefits of taking an educational tour with WorldStrides. We are still currently working out the details regarding when and where, so please keep an eye out for a follow-up email, physical invites your students will bring home, and an update on the school calendar.

Kind Regards,

Joseph Arnold
