Over the district’s April vacation, three delegations through the Newtown International Center for Education (NICE) visited three different countries: Spain, France, and China.
Members of the delegations recently reflected on those trips and on hosting delegates who visited Newtown during three separate times between February and the start of April.

Study tour chaperones for the recent Newtown International Center for Education (NICE) delegation visits to China, France, and Spain resoundingly said this week the trips all were wonderful experiences.
Some of the students who traveled to the three countries also chimed in to share their favorite parts of the experiences.

To the Editor:
To all those involved in the Newtown International Center for Education (NICE) program:
Hello! My name is Kevin Rovelli, and I am a Newtown High School Class of 2011 alumnus. I participated in the NICE program as a host for two Chinese students and as a member of NHS’s first student delegation to travel to Liaocheng. I am writing this email to all of the educators involved in the NICE program to express my gratitude for their dedication and hard work that make this program a success.

I’ve heard of bean counters, but there are some expert jelly bean counters in town. Lawrence Card joined forces with his sons, 16-year-old Alexandyr, 6-year-old William, and 5-year-old Nathaniel, to come up with the winning number of jellybeans in the jar at Reed Intermediate School. The jellybean guessing contest was sponsored by one of the Odyssey of the Mind teams at the school recently, mom Gia Card tells me. The Cards guessed 2,592 beans, and there were actually only 18 more than that.
