Italy tour update

The world famous canals of Venice, Michelangelo’s beautiful paintings in the Sistine Chapel, and the legendary Colosseum of Rome will all have to wait.

BSM’s planned trip to Italy has been rescheduled for spring break of 2011. “It gives us a year to plan and budget,” said trip coordinator Mr. Robert Epler. Originally planned for this spring break, the trip has been pushed back to next year because of the lack of students signed up. “There were lots of students interested, but virtually no follow through,” said Mr. Epler.

The trip, scheduled from March 26 to April 4, will include sightseeing in Venice, Florence, Pompeii and Rome, visiting the famous historical sights like the Colosseum as well as the Vatican.

The trip was originally intended for students in AP European History, Arts in the Church, and Mr. Epler’s upper-level Latin classes. However, in an effort to get more people signed up, Mr. Epler is now opening the trip up to other students and adults. “I’m [now] advertising it school-wide,” said Mr. Epler, who is having an informational meeting on Tuesday, March 23 at 7 p.m. for all those who are interested.
