To continue the partnership between the EASD and the Weifang Ameri-can Academy in China, EASD will taking another trip to China June 10-23, 2020. The price will be approximately $2300 per person including airfare (direct flight Chicago-Shanghai & Beijing-Chicago), the cost of a Chinese visa, lodging (hotel in Shanghai and Qing Dao and host families from the academy we partner with in Weifang & Beijing), and high speed train ticket from Beijing to Weifang. The group will go to the Great Wall, The Forbidden City, Summer Palace, The Silk Market, as well as many museums and local attractions in Weifang, Qing Dao & Shanghai. Students and adults can attend classes at the academy, as well as take part in numerous culture classes around Weifang to learn more about Chinese culture. Several of us from the district (parents, teachers and students) went on this trip in the summer of 2017, 208 & 2019 and it was truly the trip of a lifetime!
