Sea ’22 and Earth ’24 Gira recently trained with coaches from the professional Spanish soccer team FC Barcelona and met some of the professional players at the FCB Escola Clinic in Spain. Those that are familiar with world soccer know this is a once in a lifetime experience! FC Barcelona evaluated 5,000 youth soccer players across America last summer and selected about 4% as the most talented players to continue development at the FCB Escola Clinic this fall. The experience also included Spanish culture and a “local’s view” of the beautiful city of Barcelona, along with weekend excursions to Beach Session, Parc Guell, the Historic District and Visit La Masia. Sea produced a short video below documenting the amazing experience.
No Late Start for MS and US - Wednesday, February 1
In view of the lost instructional day Monday, the Middle and Upper Schools will run block schedules through the end of the week (C, D, E, and F rotations). This calendar change means that, except in the Lower School, we will NOT run a late-start Wednesday schedule on February 1. Lower School will still have a late start. Middle and Upper School classes will begin promptly at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, February 1.
