Northport K-8 students in Vicki Baird’s eighth grade Spanish classes created their own family trees using Spanish words and phrases.  Students identified relationships to family members and then gave two physical and two personality
traits for each family memeber using Spanish language skills.  Students also displayed handmade Ojo de Dios or Eyes of God.  The Ojo de Dios were symbolic of wisdom and light in the Indian cultures in Mexico and Central America.  Students
on the Northstar team in eighth grade have a great opportunity to earn one of two required high school foreign language credits at an advanced pace.
