Participate in the BHS-Israeli Exchange Program

Israel trip

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Brighton High School is once again excited to participate in the BHS-Israeli Exchange. Marla Taplinger and John Clements are the advisors for this exchange program. This trip is intended to be a strictly cultural and non-religious. As such, any BHS student can participate in this trip. Our trip to Israel will take place during our 2023 February Break.

Those students interested in traveling to Israel will have an opportunity to participate in an interest-based itinerary that would include unique hands-on experiences that would be a fantastic addition to your student’s high school transcript and college applications. A few examples of avenues that students will be able to explore are archaeology/history, arts/music, and science/technology.

Participating in the exchange would be a wonderful, meaningful, and very relevant experience for your student. What better way to spend a winter vacation than to travel to a warmer climate and explore Israel with other teens their age.

There is an informational meeting for traveling to Israel at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 17 in BHS Room 200. If you are interested in learning more about traveling to Israel, please contact one of us so we can send you an application. Once you receive the application, we would kindly ask you to fill it out as soon as possible and return to either one of us via email or have it dropped off in our main office mailboxes. We will need to hear back from you by the end of November for traveling.

Thank you very much for your time and consideration.

Mr. John Clements

Mrs. Marla Taplinger
