McPherson High School students will be traveling to Costa Rica for another round of ziplining, horse riding, visiting the elementary children and bringing them simple supplies. The sponsor of the 2017 trip was Mrs. Krug one of the spanish teachers at the high school, as for the 2018 trip back Mr. Sanchez will be the sponsor. As far as fundraising goes students had two years to plan and make payments for the 2017 trip so there were no fundraising opportunities. Traveling with Mrs. Krug was sixteen students and one parent, they spent 6 days traveling in Costa Rica visiting several sites and meeting new people.

Several students who have previously gone on the trip have graduated, while others are not going again for the 2018 year because the itinerary is the same. Junior Emily Smith said, “No I don’t plan on going again because I went last year and they will be doing the same things as last year.”

Some MHS students aren’t going because of the expense, still many plan on going for the amazing experience.Sophomore Brock McDaniel said, “I’m not going because if I am paying that much money I would rather go with friends and family than the school.” Savannah Thode said, “Yes I plan on going because I have never been and heard it is awesome.”Diana Garcia says, “I’m not sure, mostly because of the expense and there has been no mention of fundraisers as of yet and I would end up paying for it myself.”

Along with the fun and exciting aspects of the trip students will also be taking simple school supplies to a local elementary as well as visiting a coffee plantation. The students went a played with the kids as well to get a sense of what their daily life is like compared to ours. Junior Rachel Janzen said, “I think it was to understand how fortunate we are and that we should be more grateful.”
