Good morning Gateway! Last week, the AIM department partnered with the World Languages department to host the first world languages competition in the Pittsburgh region since 2006. The entire World Languages department stepped up and contributed to a very professional and exciting day for local French and Spanish speaking students. 10 teams from the region came to Gateway High School to test their language skills and knowledge. Four challenging rounds consisted of: written questions, oral responses, Latin derivatives, and a culture section. The winning teams were as follows: French - 1st place team -Gateway (Hera Mukhtar & Kyah Russell), Spanish - 3rd place team Gateway A (Dylan Baxter, Micah Symons, Holly Minnich, Madylin Hout, and Erika Wilson). Students were presented with snacks from around the world during their break and got to play International Bingo to wrap up the day. This competition is sure to become a permanent addition to the robust enrichment program we offer at Gateway School District. Be sure to congratulate these students and the World Languages department on job well done!
