Eight young students from South Korea are attending classes at Viroqua’s Pleasant Ridge Waldorf School (PRWS) for three weeks from Jan. 3-22.
Sumi Lee, their English teacher in Daegu, South Korea is the niece of Viroqua resident Loma Huh.
Planning for this experience began last school year. The students visiting the elementary school range in age from 10-14, years old with four older students visiting Youth Initiative High School.
While in Viroqua, the students are staying with host families from the Waldorf parent community. PRWS students have learned the Korean alphabet and a few phrases in this new language.
A welcome assembly was held Jan. 8. A farewell assembly with the visitors will be held Jan. 22 at 8:20 a.m.
The private, non-profit school serves over 150 children in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade from the tri-county area.
