On Monday, April 15th, the WRMS 8th grade Spanish classes made food from 7 different countries and learned about the culture and country. Mrs. Terrell, 7th and 8th grade Spanish teacher and girls basketball assistant coach, said, “It was a part of a unit to teach my students that Latin American food is not just Mexican food.”

While the event was going on in the WRMS commons, there were several important people from the central office like Dr. Scott McWilliams (Superintendent), Brian White (Head of Human Resources), and Jessica Roberts (Director of Communications) who attended. White thought the event was great, and said, “By far my favorite part of the event was seeing the excitement  of all the students engaged in their work and learning. There were so many amazing trucks, menus, ‘work’ t-shirts, and food samples.” During the event Mrs. Terrell and all the students making food raised $247, and for the event all the money raised is going to the trip to Costa Rica. Terrell said, “It’s not really about the money, I just hope I break even!” While the event was going, there were many trucks serving food, but the one that caught White’s eye the most was “Boriqua Bites,” where Emily Dominguez, Shantel Carter, and Makena Krauska made “Besitos,” a coconut cookie from Puerto Rico. Dominguez said, “Spanish was really fun, and the best part was all the games we played and this unit.” About 125 students and staff ended up going to the event. Mrs. Terrell plans on making this an annual event for WRMS. She said, “the best part was seeing the pride that students took in their team’s work and the food that they prepared and served.”
