These are simple and casual gatherings where CMASAS students get together to meet and explore the local area. Each regional gathering is personalized and based on student interests and local attractions.
If you have an idea of where you’d like a regional gathering to be held, please let your PEC know.

PAST REGIONAL GATHERINGS
San Diego, California
What better way to experience the beautiful fall colors than with fellow classmates in Portland, Oregon at a world famous corn maze and pumpkin patch? Yes, it was cold, but after roaming the huge maze for what seemed like hours, enjoying lunch at the picnic tables and going pumpkin hunting in their pumpkin fields, it felt more like a warm summer day reflecting back on meeting parents and students in such a unique setting.
New York City
Students from all over met to explore the Museum of Modern Art, sing showtunes with Broadway singers, and ice skate in the snow at Bryant Park. Oh, and yes!, hot chocolate was definitely on the menu.
Led by PEC, Kimberly McEachen, students met up to experience the famous landmarks in D.C., including the Washington Monument, the Botanical Gardens, and the Smithsonian. The image below was created by one of the students on the trip!
