Columbus Spanish Day Showcases Student Performances
Columbus High School Spanish teacher Liliana Velasco led Columbus High Schools first Spanish Competition Day. Velasco credits her department for their work, Principal Steve Woodside for support and encouragement, and Band teacher Jeff Peabody who worked with students to co-create musical performances and to provide technical support.
The event was open to any student currently enrolled in Spanish 3 or higher. Teachers submitted registration to Columbus High School. Students competed in Drama, Folk Dance, Music, Poetry, and Poster/Art.
Fourteen schools registered to attend with 210 students. Unfortunately, the original event date was rescheduled due to flooding in the area. The nine high schools able to attend on the rescheduled date were Syracuse-Dunbar-Avoca, Wilber Clatonia, York, David City, Columbus, Cornerstone Christian, Platteview, Plainview, and Norris.
