Hungarian Flying Squirrels!!!

Our Hungarian International Languages - Elementary experienced a wonderful class trip promoting language and physical literacy with a visit to the Flying Squirrel, a local indoor trampoline park. They jumped, and hopped their way to a fantastic time. The rich discussions and activities that followed this trip built community and language skills. Looks like they had tons of fun!
