This past week, Mrs. Logan's and Mrs. Astarita's 8th grade Italian classes had a wonderful opportunity to partake in an Italian cultural trip. The students visited the Italian Cultural Center / Generoso Pope Building to learn about the holiday traditions of Italians. They got to ride in the Tuckahoe trolley and while there they viewed a screening of "Christmas in the Italian Arts" had a lesson from one of the center historians and got a chance to view the Foundations' enormous Presepio. This was followed up with a hands on pizza making class, where the students learned how to make pizza and even had a chance to make and eat their own!
