    Got nothing to do Wednesday after school? Well stop by rooms F5-F11 from 3:00 to 5:00 for an assortment of Spanish themed activities such as piñata breaking, Christmas carols, delicious food, games, video, skits, and traditional. December 14 to 24 is Los Posadas, a holiday that has its roots in Spanish tradition. The holiday symbolizes the trials that Joseph, Mary, and the Holy Family endured. “Here at Arcadia High School, the Spanish wing of the World Languages Department, attempts to use the structure of the Posadas festival as an instrument to promote knowledge and understanding of Hispanic culture,” says Mr. Tierney, one of the AHS Spanish teachers involved with the celebration. P Spanish students will also assist with the celebration. In response to what the purpose of the school celebration was, Mr. Tiereny “The World Languages Department wishes to use the vehicle of the Posadas to promote cultural awareness of an activity that has gone on in Southern California for eons and to provide a forum for some of our students to educate us about that activity. Our inaugural celebration was last year. We hope to make it an annual event here at AHS.”

    Got nothing to do Wednesday after school? [change this first sentence into something that doesn't sound like "you should only go if you have nothing to do." also avoid question openers]Well stop by rooms F-5 to F-11 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. for an assortment of Spanish-themed activities such as piñata breaking, Christmas carols, delicious food, games, video, skits, and traditional [traditional what?]. Dec. 14 to 24 is Los Posadas, a Spanish holiday that symbolizes the trials that Joseph, Mary, and the Holy Family endured. “Here at Arcadia High School, the World Languages Department wishes to use the vehicle of the Posadas to promote cultural awareness of an activity that has gone on in Southern California for eons and to provide a forum for some of our students to educate us about that activity,” explained Mr. Tierney, one of the AHS Spanish teachers involved with the celebration. "Our inaugural celebration was last year. We hope to make it an annual event here at AHS.” P [AP?] Spanish students will also assist with the celebration.

    HEY EVAN.
    since the event takes place before we distribute you will have to write the whole article in PAST TENSE because by the time we distribute it will have already happened. since the activities are on the day we go to press, could you just find out what they are planning to do and just assume that you know what happens?

    Las Posadas: Culture Shock

    Students came by rooms F-5 to F-11 from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. last Wednesday for an assortment of Spanish-themed activities such as piñata breaking, Christmas carols, delicious food, games, video, skits, and tradition.

"Our inaugural celebration was last year. We hope to make it an annual event here at AHS,” Attendance was great, so it definitely may seem like that will be the case!
    AP Spanish students also assisted with the celebration, and were encouraged to bring homemade cooking. “The event we organized this year is a shorter and simpler version of the Spanish celebration. Within one day we enjoyed many activities such and traditional Spanish dance, music and food. The staff and students worked really hard to organize the event.” says Shivangi Tandon, an official of the Spanish Club, and indeed they did. Everywhere there was a way to have fun or learn something about Columbian culture, Puerto Rican culture, Mexican culture and other Spanish influenced cultures. To attend the celebration was to open the door to a wide range foods and treat your senses. Students even sang villancicos, or carols, and watched dramatic reenactments by AP Spanish classes. “There’s a difference between studying something and experiencing it firsthand,” says Mrs. Lopez, summarizing the importance of having such events at our school.

    The Spanish teachers of AHS have all tried to conserve a wide array of different Spanish influenced cultures, and judging by the reaction of the people who attended, students had a great time and learned a lot. If they were vigorously smashing a piñata with a stick, or eating some steaming rice dishes, they were not only attending a party but paying homage to some of the most rich and diverse cultures in the world. “There’s a difference between studying something and experiencing it firsthand,” says Mrs. Lopez, summarizing the importance of having such events at our school,” says Spanish teacher Mrs. Lopez, effectively summarizing the purpose of the entire event.
