The Law Bakers have LOTS more goodies to sell today at lunch!  Stop by the old gym and enjoy some Christmas music and sweet treats.  Help the Law class make enough money to take their field trip!  AND REMEMBER, for every $2 you spend you improve your classes chances to eat lunch first for a full week in January!  Seniors are currently in the lead by 1 ticket. Business Law students need to meet at the beginning of 5A in the old gym.

Stop by the old gym today to enjoy some delicious holiday treats provided by the Business Law class!  These LAW BAKERS are raising money to fund a field trip to the US District Courthouse and Champaign County Jail–they literally want you to TAKE THEM TO COURT.  For every $2 you spend, your name will go into a drawing for the chance for you AND your classmates to eat first in lunch line the week we return from break!

 

Do you know someone who’s been naughty or nice this year? For $1 you can add them to Santa’s list this week during lunch. Every name on the list will get a treat Friday during homeroom.

Spanish News

Submitted by Ms. Martin

The Spanish classes of IWHS have been hard at work, covering many new topics before the holiday break arrives.Spanish 1 recently learned a few of the prepositions to describe the location of objects in the classroom.  We practiced these prepositions each day by reciting a rhyme to help us remember.  Ask a Spanish 1 student to recite this to you if you see one!

Spanish 2 is in a clothing unit, and we are finishing up with one of the most popular projects: the infamous fashion show! Each group of 3-4 students has chosen a theme, and is showcasing clothing to fit that topic.  There will be pictures to follow, posted on Twitter.  Stay tuned for their creative ideas.
