What a Chili Cook-Off!  The 35th Annual Chili Cook Off was a huge success. We broke records this year both in turnout and in profit.  What an amazing event and an amazing day.  Thank you to all of our sponsors and volunteers who came out in support of this incredible fundraiser.  Without all of you, this event would not be possible.  I also want to wish everyone a Happy Veteran’s Day.  Thank you to all of our veterans who have served this country!  “We don’t know them all, but we owe them all.”

Costa Rica

The Cornerstone School and the Costa Rican Resource are proud to announce

“The Cornerstone School Costa Rican Adventure”

The Cornerstone School and Costa Rican Resource (CRR) have partnered together to provide an educational opportunity to visit Cost Rica.  This trip is structured to provide an educational (and fun) opportunity for our Cornerstone students and families.  The adventure will be led by the professional staff of CRR (http://www.crrtravel.com) and our very own Spanish language instructor, Ms. Diaz.

When: 

  • Departure date is tentatively set for May 31, 2017

    Where:

  • San Jose, Costa Rica (and the surrounding area)

    What: 

  • An 8-Day educational adventure tour in Costa Rica
  • The trip will be a homestay format (we will stay in the homes of Costa Rican families).  This is the best way to experience Costa Rican culture and practice our Spanish speaking skills.

    Cost:

  • Estimated cost is $2,400.00 (due to airline fare fluctuation we cannot give a specific price)
  • All participants will need to get a passport.

For more information, questions, and specific details (daily itinerary) please contact Ms. Yadira at ydiaz@thecornerstoneschool.org
