World languages were celebrated in a variety of ways as P.J. Gelinas Junior High School marked this year’s Foreign Language Week.

The building’s Foreign Language Honor Society participated in a poster contest, calling all members to create colorful pieces based on the central theme “Languages Enrich Your Mind.” The entire student body enjoyed viewing a traveling mural exhibit throughout the week in the foreign language hallways, as well as taking part in trivia and door decorating contests. The week concluded with an International Night celebration featuring five musical performances and an array of authentic dishes.

Congratulations to ninth-grader Komal Grewal for winning the poster contest and Brian Scripture’s class for winning the door decorating contest.
