SHS Spanish Classes Visit Mint Museum

SHS Spanish Course Attend Field Trip

Salisbury High School's Spanish Language courses visited the Mint Museum in Charlotte to learn more about the various Meso-American cultures of the Mayans, Aztecs and Incas and the European (mostly Spanish) infiltration upon those cultures.  Students in Mrs. Harris's and Mrs. Garcia's classes took part in a fun, educational experience learning about how each of them have genetic and historic ties to both Spain and Central America.  Mrs. Garcia was very pleased with the collective student behavior.
