MKSC Parents can request to join “Spanish Kickers” or “French Kickers” groups on Facebook,. Through these private groups, parents can enjoy all the pictures and videos of this year’s European soccer adventures.
These trips are organized around soccer; however, we strive to offer learning experiences that go beyond that to.
