Venezuelan Partnership

Rita A. Oleksak, Director of World Languages/ELL, presents a plaque to the Venezuelan Partnership students and chaperones celebrating 10 years of partnerships (2008-2018).

Each year since 2008 we have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to host a group of Venezuelan visitors from Caracas, Venezuela. Students and teachers from El Avila School have joined our Smith Middle School community during the month of May. 

The Venezuelan students are paired with sixth or seventh grade hosts who help them learn more about Gideon Welles School or Smith Middle School. The Venezuelan teachers also enrich our classrooms by co-planning instruction and presentations in Spanish classes as well as other subjects.

Applications for the 2023 Venezuelan Partnership are NOT YET AVAILABLE.
