St. Rita to Celebrate National Foreign Language Week All Week

National Foreign Language week is being celebrated the week of March 5 at Saint Rita.  Each day, students will have the opportunity to participate in scavenger hunts, trivia and international lunches. Pulseras (hand woven bracelets) from Nicaragua will be sold at lunch as well.


On Tuesday after school, the Spanish, Latin and French Clubs will host a movie and pizza.  During Wednesday's all-school Mass, songs and readings will be presented in Spanish, Latin and French.

Students are also encouraged to participate in the poster contest which is for this year's theme "Languages lead us on a path to understanding other cultures". 

Finally, on Thursday of this week, there will be the annual student Expo in the Van Leuven Center with interactive projects created by students as well as food samples from around the world.  The World Languages Department is looking forward to an exciting week celebrating the three languages offered at Saint Rita.
