Exciting opportunity for students and families to experience International Educational Travel to Portugal and Spain with other students, families, and teachers from CeVMS

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

Congratulations! Your child is personally invited to participate in an international travel program in the Spring of 2019!

Why Are We Going? Your child will…

  • Step outside the classroom and engage with the world firsthand

  • Go beyond his/her comfort zone and experience new foods, cultures and people

  • Receive an experience that will help him/her stand out on college applications

  • Learn how to navigate new situations with a broader global perspective

  • Have a life changing experience

Where Are We Going? Europe!

Students will participate in an educational tour to Portugal & Spain in the Spring of 2019. We will be exploring geographically, culturally and linguistically diverse cities from Lisbon to Madrid—yet distinct in their traditions and histories.  Along the way we will venture to Lisbon, Seville, Córdoba, Madrid and Toledo!

What’s Next? View this presentation to learn more about this opportunity.



I hope that you and your child will be able to attend the upcoming meeting to learn more about this unique opportunity.

Warm regards,

Leslie Blanton


Welcome sixth grade students and parents!
I am excited to start a new year with you. I teach World Cultures and TAG World Cultures. 
The supplies you will need are: pencils, paper, red and black pens, and colored pencils (erasable 
are my favorite), a POCKET FOLDER WITH 3 BRADS. 
When you need to find assignments they will be on the Assignment Calendar page.

We have moved to an online World Cultures textbook this year. You will frequently use the online World Cultures textbook outside of class to complete assignments, map activities, and projects. If you don’t have internet access outside of class, please notify your teacher the first week of school.
