SPANISH CLUB HOSTS 1ST ANNUAL TEACHER LUNCHEON

The Spanish club at VAHS hosted a student led luncheon for all staff members. On the menu you ask?


Burritos, Tacos, and Tamales. Officers of Spanish club, along with their sponsor Mrs. Rodriguez, delegated items to club members to bring. During the luncheon, the staff members were served their food “Chipotle” style (assembly line of making the food). One first started with a tortilla, then filled it with their choice of beef, lettuce, tomato, beans, cheese, guacamole, and salsa.


The staff was very grateful for the students willingness to honor them with a luncheon.
