Our home community is a small one, just one tiny part of the large and ever more interconnected world our students will grow up to join. We try to give students the widest possible window on the world, through the curriculum and seminars, as well as activities devoted to greater understanding. Through the One World Youth Project, kids connect to their colleagues around the world, talking online to students in Kosovo and Tanzania, among others, learning about their very different cultures. The Japan Homestay, our enduring exchange program with the city of Matsuyama-Machi, Japan, sends eight students to Japan every other year, after a period of intensive study of the Japanese language and culture. This year students from Roots & Shoots traveled to the United Nations on International Peace Day for a conference with other students from across the country and around the world.
International Day of Peace: Photos of Roots & Shoots at the UN Five students from Roots & Shoots joined several CCLCS alumni, Miss Allie and Mr. Niles at a special ceremony celebrating the International Day of Peace at the United Nations on September 21st. They heard remarks from Kofi Annan and participated in a forum with Muhammad Ali, Elie Wiesel, Jane Goodall, Michael Douglas and other Messengers of Peace.
