St. Rita Holds Foreign Language Expo in Celebration of National Foreign Language Week


This week, the world languages department at St. Rita celebrated National Foreign Language Week with the Foreign Language Expo. The expo included interactive projects from Latin, French and Spanish classes.  Some of the exhibits featured were student videos in Spanish and in French, puzzles in foreign languages, faculty and staff trivia, poster contest, family tree projects and Don Quijote exhibit, alphabets in different languages and Roman mini villa student projects.  The expo also included a wall of photos from various trips taken by St. Rita students and faculty.  Before entering the expo, students received a passport book that was stamped at each exhibit.  Upon leaving the expo students received international treats made by students in exchange for their passport stamps.

National Foreign Language Week at St. Rita also included the sale of pulseras. The Pulsera Project is a nonprofit organization that educates, empowers, and connects Central American artists with students in more than 1,600 U.S. schools through the sale of colorful handwoven bracelets, or "pulseras" in Spanish.
