Due to weather conditions beyond our control, our Breakout Week volleyball trip to Cuba was missing one key part - Cuba! But with the exceptional efforts of both Mr. Collins and Mr. Moorlag a whole new week was put together for us. The week ended up being tons of fun and each and every girl was impressed by the activities we participated in, which was amazing considering the amount of time they had to prepare. So we would like to share what we did for the week.
