CAPE ELIZABETH — The School Board approved a trip for about a dozen high school Spanish students to Costa Rica in February.
The students will travel with Spanish teacher Mark Pendarvis, will be gone for about two weeks during February vacation, and will miss six days of school.
At a Tuesday, Nov. 8 meeting, Pendarvis said while in Costa Rica the students will teach English to elementary and middle school students, study Spanish and have time to complete their own homework.
Then in March, students from Cost Rica will visit Cape Elizabeth for two weeks, Pedarvis said.
In other business, new School Board members will be sworn in on Monday, Dec. 12, and the first meeting as a new board will be Tuesday, Dec. 13.
