Traveling Abroad

image
Over spring break, I was part of a group that went to France and Spain. We spent the first two days in Paris, where we visited Sacré Coeur, Notre Dame, the Louvre, and the Eiffel Tower. Half of the group also went to the Catacombs, where approximately 6 million people are buried.

A quick plane ride took us to Barcelona, where we visited the Sagrada Familia, the Parc Güell, the Cathedral of Barcelona, La Boqueria, and a beach in Sitges. One night, many people tried calamari for the first time. After three nights, we boarded the bus for the seven hour drive to Madrid. Halfway between Barcelona and Madrid, we stopped at the Monasterio de Piedra, where we walked through the park.

In Madrid, we saw the famous Puerta del Sol, and the Prado museum. Later, part of the group walked to the Estación de Atocha, where we saw over 100 turtles. We also went shopping in the Plaza Mayor before finishing our tour with a tapas night, where we sampled tortilla de patatas, jamón, and pimientos. Finally, we tried churros con chocolate. The next morning, we woke up bright and early to return home. (Submitted by Megan Vladoiu)

Fat Tuesday in French Class

On Tuesday, March 4, EHS French students celebrated Mardi Gras. Mrs. Tiller, leading by example, encouraged the students to dress in costume, wear beads and masks or wear the traditional Mardi Gras colors green, gold, and purple for the festivities. Students also prepared traditional Cajun dishes, as well as Mardi Gras King cakes, and other creative and unique cakes to share with their classmates. Some students even participated in learning a Mardi Gras dance to celebrate the occasion. Finding one more way to connect EHS students to world culture, Fat Tuesday has become an annual celebration at Edgewood.

Music Warehouse & Sophisticated Ladies both won Grand Champion, and both were also awarded best Vocals and Best Choreography caption awards as well. New Edition was also named Grand Champ of their division.At the DeKalb Show Choir Invitiational, the lineups were a bit larger. Sophisticated Ladies outscored twelve other unisex choirs to take both captions again. New Edition made finals for the second consecutive week, and walked away with best vocals, but lost out on 1st place to the top choir from Pendellton. Music Warehouse competed against fourteen choirs including Anderson, Fishers, Lawrence Central, Carroll, and Bishop Luers. In the end they were honored to have placed ahead of all but one. Twinsburg, Ohio edged out Warehouse by five points. This past weekend, Music Warehouse and Sophisticated Ladies competed at Franklin Central.
