This past Fall, Connelly School of the Holy Child in Potomac, MD, participated in a Spanish exchange program with students from Monaita School, a Catholic school in Granada, Spain. The visiting students were immersed in the American experience by living with Holy Child host families, taking classes with their host students, and visiting museums, monuments, and historic sites. In March 2019, during the School’s Spring break, Holy Child students will be headed to Spain to spend time with their host families and attend school.
From the Spanish student guests:
We are the Spanish exchange students. We arrived in the USA on October 18. We came really excited and with high expectations, which you have fulfilled! At Holy Child, you have welcomed us very nicely and we have felt very proud of being part of this school. Moreover, the teachers have also welcomed us in the best possible way and treated us like one of their students. You have made us feel as one of you. So, we are grateful to all of you for making this experience unforgettable. We will keep in touch!! Thanks all!!
