Forest Lake junior high school students help out in Guatemala
Hauling dirt in wheelbarrows to reforest Lake Atitlan. Expanding a building to create office space for mission volunteers. Working on a community coffee plantation.
These are experiences that 17 Century Junior High School students will not soon forget. A service trip to Guatemala in July, under the leadership of Spanish teacher Pamela Schultze, took them to San Luqueños, a predominantly Mayan community that faces poverty on a daily basis.
Nor will they take for granted their comfortable life in America. See Forest Lake Times story.
