East Boston Students Preparing for Sicily (Continued from Page 1) This upcoming spring break will be a very special one for twelve lucky and hardworking students of East Boston High School. As part of an ongoing exchange program with a school in Italy, the students will be part of a two-week experi- ence abroad that will strengthen a relationship started in 2010 with a Sicil- ian school. Students will fly from Boston to Rome on an over- night flight on March 16. Before heading down to Palermo with another flight, the students will spend two days exploring the cultural and historical sites of mod- ern and ancient Rome. "The plan in Rome is to see the main sights," says Jessica Gorham Cronin, a level 2 Italian teacher at East Bos- ton High School who has been helping with the trip's organization. "It's hard to see Rome in six months, let alone two days!" Students will fly to Palermo on Saturday morning where they will be met by their host families. The group will stay in Alcamo, about 25 miles southwest of Palermo, for seven nights. The Sicil- ian host school has compiled an itinerary of our week's stay, which will include travel to various cities of historical/ cultural impor- tance within the region. The group will return to Boston on Saturday, March 26 th. To help the students pay for their airline tickets, the school is organizing a special "Serata Italiana" -- Italian evening fundraiser. On Saturday, February 12, participants in the fund- raiser held at Savio High School (145 Byron Street, East Boston) will enjoy home cooked pasta, meatballs and Italian cookies. There will also be a raffle with many prizes and children will be involved in games such as "pin Sicily on the map of Italy" after getting their faces painted with the green, white and red tri-col- ore. Once again, the fundraiser will take place on February 12, from 5 p.m. to i:; Join Us For ":l . at great prices JUST MENTION THIS AD AND LET ... -:,, ' ... do the rest  ,: ALL WINES BY THE GLASS - h price ALL APPETIZERS - /2 price F ALL PASTA DISHES - h price  4: % VEAL FRANCESCA - , price  CHICKEN MICHELANGELO - /2 price    SOGLIOLA ALLA MEDITERRANEA (SOLE) - 1/2 priC]e;: THIS OFFER IS VALID THROUGH THE MONTH OF FEBRUARY  EXCEPT ON THE FOLLOWING DAYS, Fbruary 5th, February 12th, February 14th, February 19th, and Februa 26th I Ine Heart of Boston s North E. I 8 p.m., at Savio High School. Tickets are $10 each, or $5 for children 12 and under. The trip is the second act of a broader exchange that saw eleven Italian students from Sicily come to Boston last year, so the students going to Italy already know who they will meet across the ocean. "The students are Facebooking each other already, making arrange- ments with the families they will be staying wit and plarming iheir" sdhedules while there," says Cronin, who herself spent her junior year of college in Florence. Cronin recalls the great time the Italian students had in Boston, as they experienced some U.S. traditions such as the school's homecoming dance and watching the Thanksgiving football game all together. "The students are very excited and motivated for the trip," says Cronin. Students will keep their teachers, friends and fami- lies up to date on their Sicilian adventures through blogs they will set up before the trip. A major theme is easy to predict: cannoli, a Palermo specialty!
