It’s official, The Traveling School’s 39th semester has begun. Thanks to everyone’s collective efforts for our successful relaunch to southern Africa! Our Washington, D.C. orientation was filled with duffel checks, name games and community building activities, last minute errands, skits about what to expect on the international flights and upon arrival to Zimbabwe, and so much more. We enjoyed meeting the student cohort and many parents. We missed those who couldn’t join us. Don’t worry, we’ll be sharing photos and updates of the group’s first days in Victoria Falls in the coming days! Also know we’re here to answer questions as they arise, so reach out if you need us. Enjoy the pics and take a glimpse at the TTS39 Parent Itinerary Presentation for more details about the upcoming semester. We look forward to sharing the students’ next 3 ½ months with all of you. Sit back and enjoy the ride!!
