Ti students in sync

TICONDEROGA - Ticonderoga Middle School had a foreign language explosion recently with its third annual lip sync competition.

The competition has been named "Super," a word that is used in both languages.

Students in seventh and eighth grade French and Spanish classes were responsible through the year for memorizing and translating a song in their respective language.

Spanish teacher Heather York and French teacher Kari Millard directed the event.

Each class used problem solving group skills by creating a dance to represent their song.

The culmination of the project was the performance in front of families and judges. The judges were Bruce Tubbs, middle school principal, Lynne Lenhart, a Ti High Spanish teacher, Kirsten Decker, a Ti Elk French teacher, and Mr. David Carr of the Ticonderoga Elks.

Each class was judged in four categories: costumes, lip sync, choreography and best overall. Each category was judged so that one class from either French or Spanish won the Best Overall award, receiving a pizza party, and all students received certificates.

Participation was mandatory; students received a grade for their effort.

The Ticonderoga Middle School foreign language department plans on making this an annual production.

Ti-TV recorded the event and DVDs have been made available to families of the students who participated.
