During spring break, some South students and a South teacher went on a trip to Costa Rica. This was an educational trip, and students learned about wildlife, landscape, and much more. The only teacher who went from South was Ms. Vittetoe. Some highlights of the trip included a visit to an elementary school, and the tour guide taught them some Costa Rican slang.
