Ti students observe language week

TICONDEROGA During the week of March 6, Ticonderoga High School honored Spanish, French and other national cultures in a highly-celebratory event called National Foreign Language Week. Over the span of the week, students began their mornings by answering foreign language trivia questions after the morning announcements. Many of the languages used included Spanish, French, and Japanese. Wednesday, March 7, a number of students and foreign language teachers created many different foods based on different cultures from throughout the world. Teachers Lynne Lenhart, Heather York, Kirsten Decker, and Kari Millard all created foods of different cultures. Some of these foods were Enchiladas de Queso, Pollo con Mole and Brie Cheese with Baguette. Many students who were present throughout the night also brought dishes including Tres Leches Cake, Pizza, Taquitos, Lo Mein, and Sesame Chicken. After eating, the French and Spanish students matched wits in a game of trivia. Each team was given a question about their countries and had to answer it, either by the person assigned or with the help with the rest of the team. Although the French team won the game with a score of 300 points, the Spanish team, which lost with a score of 295 points, had the best music for the night. The Spanish classes had the pop artist Juanes and many other artists playing through out the night. Lastly during the celebrated events of National Foreign Language Week, the students and teachers participated in a costume contest on Friday. The students and teachers were told to dress up as any culture in the world. Winning from the student category was Brianna Backus with her outfit of Japanese origin.
