Learning Cultural Appreciation
St. Charles Spanish Teacher, Miss DeLeuw, constructed a unique and exciting experience for our K-5 students that involved learning about Spanish-speaking countries around the world. BIG Tiger ROARS of appreciation to Mr. Lopez-Echeto, who spoke to the students about Spain and brought rosquetes de limon for all to try, to Mr. & Mrs. Gatica who spoke to the students about Guatemala and brought special bread to share, and to Mr. Vargas who spoke to the students about El Salvador and brought fresco de ensalada for all. What a true and unique gift for our students!
