Last Friday MHS French and Spanish students went to the University of Maine to participate in the World Language Day. Our Messalonskee students were competing with schools including: Hermon HS, Bangor HS, Brewer HS, John Bapst, FoxCroft Academy. Our students had a chance to meet students and practice in the target language the entire day.
(note: MHS French squad took top honors from Bangor HS, who was clearly the favorite as their name had been written in prior to the conclusion of the event!)
I am very proud of our students, they are level 3 in Spanish and French and did a fantastic job competing against level 4 and AP Spanish and French students from other schools in the categories of poetry recitation, skit conversation, food contest and the culture bowl.
Our MHS French students won a prize on the Culture bowl and Spanish students did an amazing job in the skit conversation.
Congratulations to all of our participants!
