The U.S. Embassy in Montevideo received today a group of fifth and sixth grade students from the "Escuela Estados Unidos de America", a public school with an English immersion program. The students were accompanied by a school official, their teachers and a parent representative.

They visited the Embassy's IRC library and presented the staff with peace dove key rings on which they had painted the American and Uruguayan flags in honor of US-Uruguayan Friendship Day, a commemoration that was initiatied by teachers in Uruguayan English immersion schools. The students also presented a report of their study of the influence of the United States and French constitutions on Uruguay's founding father, General Artigas who studied these constitutions, and on Uruguay's own constitutional process.

The IRC staff welcomed the students to the library as a resource for their use and study and explained the material available to them. Upon departing, the students received notebooks and other school supplies, and the Public Affairs Office presented the school with a collection of books for their library and various information archives on CD rom.
