Local businessman Harry Shaheen nominated DeQuincy Middle for the grant.
As part of a Cross-Cultural project, our 6th Grade Spanish students at DeQuincy Middle School will be participating in a pen-pal exchange with a Spanish school from Tenerife – The Canary Islands. This will be a unique experience, not only for our Spanish classes who will greatly enjoy it, but also for DeQuincy Middle School. The exchange will include Christmas cards, a short letter, and a video/presentation of DMS. In the video, students will be recording around the school, and interviewing administrators and several teachers. Both schools will culturally benefit from the exchange, and most importantly, students will be able to practice the target languages, Spanish and English.
