As we continue celebrating National Foreign Language Week - the cafeteria will be transporting your taste buds to China! Did you know: Chopsticks originated in China almost 4,000 years ago, and the replacement of chopsticks for knives for eating at the table supposedly indicates the increased respect for the scholar over the warrior in Chinese society .
Welcome to National Foreign Language week! This week, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to find Carmen San Diego and her accomplices to return the world’s artifacts. Report your findings to Mrs. Moyer in the library - she is offering a reward for all intel.
Carmen San Diego is at it again! She has taken the Queen of England. She is the longest reigning queen in British monarchy. Carmen’s accomplice helped her in this “racket” and has her in his room.
