HArold Pateros seniors explore countries Bridgeport sch,00(: I donnod.a,,on.,00o.,o.o-..o building repair,; Pateroe High School seniors dressed in national costume and demonstrated national customs on International Day. Students celebrate Inernational Day The last big project that Pateros High School teacher Joy McCully assigned her seniors took them clear out of the country, metaphorically at least. Her students displayed the results of their work at a special exhibit in the gym Friday morning, May 22. International Day involved a great deal of research; McCully&apos;s students were required to find out the basic facts about a foreign country. That included not only basic facts such as Pateros Scno()l Board cou't from page 1 boys and girls expressed some interest in socce=';, establishing a soccer program for boys might mean choosing hetween baseball and soccer, Nolan said. A girls soccer program might mean changes in the high school's volleyball program. Nolan said the high school girls would be surveyed again in the fail. Board members approved an overnight camping trip for the sixth grade students. The sixth graders will camp out at Alia Lake tonight, May 28; a variety of activities, including horseback tiding, are scheduled. The kids will be chaperoned by some of their parents--but also by high school students and junior high teachers. Nolan said part of the reason for the trip is to introduce the sixth graders to their new teachers and the new world of junior high. Board members accepted the resignatiou of Dena Neville as director of the district's Questors (highly capable) . Neville has beendirectorofthe program for about eight years. Jason Worsham earns degree Jason Worsham, Pateros, graduated from Central Washington University at population, topography and economy, but aspects of daily life and culture like music, costume, food. The students were required to contact officials in the country they had chosen, as well as using other research sources. With the results of their search they were required to make a plaster relief map of the country. They approximation thereof--and made posters that displayed some of the information they had learned. They cooked national dishes. And they put all of it on display Friday morning, for grade school students and an yone else who was interested to listen to native music, find out about native customs and eat native food. The gym was a dizzying exposition of customs, costumes and flavors. There were the all-enveloping black costumes that are street wear for women in Saudi Arabia. There were the desert-colored tunics of historical Israel. There were Bosnian knee breeches and conical farmer's hats from rur".l China. There was a spicy black-bean-and-beef mix, a favorite of Brazilians. There was a national dish from Jordan, an intriguing mix of lamb, onion, vinegar and mint. The traditional Finnish bread was sweet and crumbly; the "Finn" refused to take credit for it, however, saying it had been made by his mom. Morn (a different Morn) also got the credit for the Danish bread and pastries. The Bosnian fry bread was made with the help of the "Bosnian's" sister--it took until 1 a.m. and the house was full of smoke when he finished, he said, but the bread was a success. Twenty-one countries were represented, including Scotland--the display proved that loud bagpipe music could be as effective as loud guitar music in stopping conversation-- Columbia, Canada, Mexico, France, Australia and Mexico.
