Fiestaval took place on May 8th and became the first outdoor event after a very long winter season. There were similarities between the Fiestaval and Carnival event in the beginning of the school year with one significant difference. Fiestaval was organized solely by the students.
Maya, Martina, Horacio, Ivanna, and our wonderful student government planned the event, bought small treats for everyone, and decorated the outside area in front of the school. Our CATS band provided musical accompaniment, and Amber (who was also a drummer) performed as a school Dj. The amount of work and effort put into this event really does deserve to be praised. Special credit is also deserved by Professor Mike who helped to organize the event and Ms. Crystal whose dancing and cheering kept everyone upbeat.
“Everything was amazing especially the food, but I would add more activities. I was also very frustrated about the band concert having been cancelled, but there was nothing we could do…” says Mark.
