LSW's Trip to Japan in 2019 -The Sister-School Program at Southwest is doing amazing things in connecting our students with others from around the world! From an interactive penpal/Skype program to foreign exchange opportunities, Southwest's global connections are expanding. One fantastic opportunity open to all LSW students is our every-other-year trip to visit our sister-school in Japan, Senshu Matsudo! Our next trip will be in July of 2019, and include a 3-night homestay with a Senshu family, and a 9-day tour of Japan hosted by EF Tour Company! Some of the many fantastic tour stops include sites in Tokyo, Kamakura, Hakone, Odawara, and Kyoto! We will be holding several parent information meetings throughout the school year, but if you would like more information you may contact Dr. Brady (tbrady@lps.org) or Tammy Cunningham (tcunning@lps.org) directly, or fill out the Japan 2019 Trip Information Request Form at: http://lps.org/go/B5RD
