World Language Classes Host Breakfast

CHS teachers Penny Haslam and Ben Shumate enjoy international food choices during the World Languages Week breakfast.

The CHS World Language classes, along with help from Ms. Carnathan's Foods classes, hosted a teacher breakfast during the annual World Languages Week in March. Teachers were given passports as they entered and invited to stop by each “country” to get them stamped. In "Germany" they enjoyed Brezeln mit Käse- und Wurstsorten (pretzel rolls, cold cuts and cheese.) In "France" they sampled croissants and crêpes (thin pancakes) with a choice of fillings such fruit, chocolate, and whipped cream. The final stop of "Spain" featured jugo de naranja and café (orange juice and coffee.)

Teacher Dan Hartman was one of the attendees.

“It was very interesting to sample what they have for breakfast in other countries. Sometimes it’s very different and sometimes it’s very similar,” he said.

Teachers who got their passports stamped in all three countries were entered into a prize drawing. Ms. Jennifer Abuaita won!

“I loved attending the World Languages Breakfast. The German pretzel rolls were delicious and made right here at the school in the Foods Lab by Ms. Carnathan. I also enjoyed the crêpes made fresh “while-u-wait” in the French room. What a treat it was to have breakfast cooked for us by the students. A hot crêpe with Nutella is really to die for!” she smiled.
