Why do you celebrate WLW?
"We continue to celebrate WLW every year because it is our chance (as teachers) to embrace the commitment that students are making to learning another culture and language. It's our opportunity to share other cultures and traditions that they aren’t necessarily learning about in our classrooms." -Senora Murphy, Spanish teacher at Holt High School.
How long has WLW been happening?
11 years, with no signs of stopping any time soon!
What do you do to celebrate WLW?
There's an assembly, soccer game, and a day to learn new cultural skills. Many of the Language teachers also add their own twists for their classes.
Language students receive a "passport" for their country and in there, there's many ways to earn points for their class.
Decorating a teacher's door with cultural things from another country is one of the many fun ways to earn points.
