GPA Explores the Different Cultures of the World
GPA’s World Language Night was a huge success! Ballet Folklorico and American Sign Language students performed for family, friends, and staff while many students presented their learning by displaying colorful, thoughtful projects accompanied by delicious home-made foods to highlight a country or tradition they studied. Thanks to all of you who joined in the festivities and made the night a fun event of learning and celebrating.
