As members of the World Languages Club at Shoreham-Wading River High School, students continue to advance an understanding of world languages and their respective cultural traditions. A recent project, completed with club adviser and Spanish teacher Tara Ann Yoches, was the construction of culturally themed gingerbread houses that are on display in the high school.

“We had a blast creating these cultural confections,” Ms. Yoches said. “Our club strives to create a diverse representation of notable international cultural icons, hence our choosing these three monuments, the Leaning Tower of Pisa (Italy), The Eiffel Tower (France) and Chichen Itza (Mexico), to build and display.”

Thanks to students Jake Albert, Grace Barra, Tiana Barone, Olivia Beirne, Kyra Beyersdorfer, Mary Curry, Kelsey Hughes, Caroline Lange, Morgan Lesiewicz, Hailey Lewkovich, Emma Logan, Juliana Mahan, Anna Marino, Abigail Metz, Kaelyn Metz, Riley Metz, Nina Nelson, Reese Nelson, Emma Raleigh, Kate Rettman, Allisandra Sagat,

Averie Sciarrino, Reegan Shea, Eileen Sheridan, Kendall Van Houten and Erin Vedder for sharing their talents and making these displays possible.
