Back to School: September 11th


For the public schools it is back to school September 11th.  Seems to be getting earlier and earlier but right now that is ok by me.  For those that send your kids to private schools double check and see when your school starts they are different.  Post a comment if you know when your school starts below so others can know as well.

Looking for a way to have fun and improve your English this summer??
Come to Summer Experience – the original English summer camp in Bagno a Ripoli. Spend the day in the hills outside Florence playing, creating, socializing, being IN ENGLISH. Staffed entirely by native English speakers who have many years working with kids and teens in Italy and around the world – our camp is ideal for Italian youth who only have scholastic English, bilingual youth and English speakers.
Open to ages 6-14. Camp runs in weekly sessions from June 10 to July 5
Younger kids bonus week: For kids ages 4-8 we’ll be running a special week at an alternative location from July 8-12.
