The students enrolled in WSHS Spanish 4 language class had the opportunity to assist a good cause, as well as demonstrating all that they have learned throughout their 4 years of learning Spanish, by writing, editing, illustrating, and publishing a children’s book -- written entirely in Spanish -- in order to donate to school library in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. This project was made available through a partnership between WSHS and Gundersen Global Partners, a program of Gundersen Lutheran Medical Foundation which regularly sends groups of volunteers to Nicaragua and Ethiopia. Susan Larsen’s spring semester classes completed 28 books. Every semester, a Gundersen Lutheran representative who has visited Nicaragua, visits Larsen’s Spanish 4 class in order to teach the students about the country and the school in Nicaragua. Larsen’s spring semester classes were the second group to send books this year.
