Published DateBELMONT — The World Languages Exchange Program at Belmont High School will be sponsoring an Indoor Yard Sale on Saturday, March 23 from 8 a.m. until 2 p.m.in the high school cafeteria and is looking for vendors to participate.
This event is to help raise funds for the French & Spanish clubs for upcoming exchange trips with France and Spain. In the past several years, both groups have had approximately 20 students participate in a student exchange program with schools in France and Spain.
This fundraiser will help raise funds to pay for that trip. In October each year, approximately 20 students from France or Spain will travel to Belmont to participate in an exchange program. These students will spend two weeks with students from Belmont High School exploring our culture, schools and communities. As part of the exchange our students will go to France in April 2014 or Spain in April 2015 and spend two weeks with the same students that visited NH.
Part of our fundraising efforts are to help our students cover the costs of traveling and staying in France as well as to help off set the costs of showing these exchange students our area. There is a sizable cost associated with traveling to Europe and our fundraising efforts take a year or more to reach our goals.
There is a $15 rental fee and set up is on Friday, March 22, 3-7 p.m.
