R.C. Murphy and P.J. Gelinas junior high schools celebrated Foreign Language Week this winter with fun activities in and out of the classroom.

French, Italian and Spanish music was played in between class periods, a travel exhibit of da Vinci, Gaudí and Monet was displayed in the foreign language wing, and students competed in a trivia contest and commercial contest. Additionally, students were assigned the task of creating a video commercial highlighting why someone should choose to study either French, Italian or Spanish. 

The winners of both contests were announced at the culminating event, International Night, which was attended by more than 350 students. Attendees enjoyed the entertainment of cultural dance and song from Spain, Ireland, Italy and France, while eating authentic dishes from the same countries.
