Last night was the CSA New Tech chili cook-off! The reigning champion Mr. Reed, took home the win again (whether that win was legitimate, we will never know). But what we do know is that it was a fun, informative night. Parents, students, and teachers alike, learned something new. Moms and dads now know how to log in and use Echo, which is the program where we get our grades and assignments. It’s a bit tricky to use at first, but I’m sure after last night all the parents have it down. Students were given a grade on how good they were able to present the rubric, and how well you were able to answer their questions. But, what I know for sure is that there was some good chili last night! Congrats to Mr. Reid and to all the other good sports. It wasn’t just chili cook-off, it was also a fundraiser. The point of this was to raise money for our school, to be used for things like field trips and such.
The day of the Ciudad CSA project was the kind of day when you are happy to be a CSA student. It was the type of event that we work hard to take part in weeks before. After the pancake breakfast all of us Spanish students made their way down to the C wing to begin their set of their store. Within an hour the hallway was turned into a Spanish speaking city.
Soon after we were all done people from Scottsburg and New Tech came flooding into the stores and began doing activities to help them learn the basics of Spanish. It was great to have the other New Tech school come and see our work as well as the rest of ours. We would say that Ciudad CSA was a very successful project and we would love to do more projects like this in the future.
