CELEBRATING LATIN AMERICAN CULTURE

CELEBRATING LATIN AMERICAN  CULTURE

There’s nothing like a mariachi band to get the party started! And our annual spring celebration of Latin America is a party of sorts … a celebration that the Language department proudly sponsors. It began as a simple question. How can we promote Spanish culture beyond the classroom? The strategy was decided. Spanish classes would work on in-class projects that presented Spanish art, literature and culture. Those projects would then be shared school – wide in the cafeteria so that all students would have the opportunity to learn a little more about their global neighbors.

HUNGER and HOMELESSNESS

HUNGER and HOMELESSNESS

They arrive at school with food in their stomachs or the opportunity to grab a morning snack in the caf before first bell. After school, they charge to the nearest food mart or Dunkin Donuts for any variety of food as they head to their after school activity. Being hungry for more than a few hours is not their reality. Hunger is a reality, however, for people in their communities and around the globe. And if you are a Bishop, there is an effort in classrooms all year to sensitize our students to the growing hunger crisis.

BLUE (and Gold) – RIBBON CHAMPS!

In every sense of the words, our 2019 Girls Basketball team are blue - ribbon champions. Once again, they were on the court at the Fleet on a run for another State championship title. There’s nothing like a Garden Party ( yes, it will always be the Garden for basketball zealots) and it was a party of two skilled CCL teams ready to battle in the MIAA Semi-finals. The winner would advance to the State Championship game.

Dr.V returns to China! BLOG 1: March 11, 2019

After landing in Shanghai, I've gone to Chongqing an enormous city rich in Chinese history both ancient and recent -- it was the WWII capital of China because of its geography and ability to resist Japanese invasion. I've sent a blog post to recap that trip (and yes there were some interesting culinary items).

We are now in Chengdu and we spent today at the Panda Research Center. In honor of today's Talent Show for the conclusion of Spirit Week, I put together a compilation video of my visit with the pandas that I thought the community might enjoy. We have more interviews tonight and tomorrow night in Chengdu before going to Beijing and Shanghai where there will be considerably more students to meet.

Good luck to the Girls at the Garden -- and I'm wishing nothing but the best for everyone involved in Shrek.

Have a great week,

Dr.V
