Senora Tardiff's Spanish III class spends time on the culture and history of spanish speaking countries. As part of that exploration they worked with Mrs. Gnaegy's Creative Cooking and Intro to Foods classes to develop celebration menus. Below are some images from that class, taken by Mrs. Freeman.

February 7 -
Before the morning sun was barely up a group of investigators descended upon the icy fringes of our beloved Darrah Pond here in Litchfield.
The wind was still and the beams of light reflected off the snow laden on the ice as if to beckon the teams of humans to its’ soul.
Their mission, to drill seven holes in ice of unfathomable debts of hundreds of millimeters thick. Ok..20 inches. Max.
The morning was cold, as expected, but the deep depression of the dense ice caused arctic temperatures leading to an inversion of extreme frigid conditions.
The students feet immediately became cold, their hands became numb, their cheeks became frosted with ice, and
Their eye lashes stuck to their cheeks. And their breath froze in its track. (Ok, now you get the picture, take a look!).
Fall 2012 - This morning the APES class descended upon Darrah Pond for their monthly investigation of the magnificent Seven stations of knowledge.
It was a dark, dreary, still, and desolate morning. But the truck loaded with equipment managed to slip down the sandy slope to the edge of the Pond.
The old battered, tattered, and dented canoe saw its first taste of ice.
Not that thin ¼" frosty, crunchy , brittle, stuff either.
It was that nasty cutting 1 inch pan ice that you step on, and you end up falling in. (I did) One frozen wet foot thank you.
However my Ice APES did a great job. They christened the old canoe, "CHS Ice Breaker". See pictures.
Josh Flynn and Jordan Lang tried breaking through the ice with their paddles, but after ½ hour they only got about 50 feet.
Then they came back to shore and used the anchor. They threw out the anchor, which punched a hole in the ice, and then pulled the Great aluminum hulk forward. After 20 minutes of extreme muscle pain they managed to get near the middle of Darrah and completed their mission.
The little ship (CHS Ice Breaker) now has a several new scratches, dents, and booboos. One of the paddles is split, and the ropes are still full of ice.
But, a great time was had by all.
We even found an animal frozen in ice. And it wasn't even in the freezer.
Pictures are attached.
