North Colonie Welcomes Costa Rican Exchange Students

From September 21st to September 30th, Shaker High School and families hosted 26 Costa Rican children and two teachers from Humboldt High School in San Jose, Costa Rica. They were welcomed into our Shaker families, schools, and community. From football games to fútbol (soccer) games, campfires, Lake George boat rides, fall activities and lots of shopping, many bonds were made and two cultures connected. After, the group of exchange students headed to New York City for five days before heading home to San José, Costa Rica. We will see them in February for the second half of our exchange program when 26 of our Shaker High students spend two weeks in Costa Rica attending school and experiencing ¡Pura Vida! (Pure life)
