Learning the Spanish Culture

OLR’s 6th grade Spanish students were lucky enough to have our own OLR parents, Mr. and Mrs. Tatem, as guest dancers last week! They taught them three dances including the salsa, the merengue, and the bachata. The students enjoyed learning and dancing, while enhancing their cultural knowledge in Spanish class! A huge “thank you” to Mr. and Mrs. Tatem for this fantástico experience!!
