Their names are Amit Horovitz and Sagi Zazon. They are both 18 years old and very excited about coming to our school to meet our students and teach us a little bit about Israeli life as a teen.
Their role is to be a Living Bridge between our communities and theirs, our country and theirs. This is a wonderful opportunity for our students to expand their learning and understanding about the culture of Israel, the world region we are currently exploring in Social Studies.
The emissaries are only here for one year but are the 15th pair of Young Emissaries in Eastern CT. In past years, Mrs. Cavallo worked with their Coordinator, Marcia Reinhard, to bring in the new emissaries to our school. We are looking forward to our continued participation in this program.
