InsideAldineThe Eisenhower High School Spanish Club students showed their linguistic skills. The students and their sponsors attended the 2015 Pan American Student Forum. The campus was among the 57 schools from across the state that competed April 17-19 in San Antonio.

On the first night of the forum, students enjoyed celebrating Noche Panamericana. Eisenhower High School’s group took part. Each year, the PASF Board of Directors selects a theme and a country from the Americas and Spain to study. Teachers encourage students to explore the theme throughout the school year. The theme of this year’s forum is “Chile: Tierra del Fuego — Un país lleno de contrastes.” For non-Spanish speakers, this translates to “Chile: Land of Fire — A Country Full of Contrasts.”

In keeping with the theme, the Ike students presented their humorous skit “Sábado Gigantesco.” They based it on the long-running variety show known as “Sábado Gigante.” The show first aired in Chile in 1962. Mario Kreutzberger popularly known as “Don Francisco” has hosted the show for more than 50 years. The show now airs throughout Latin America and the U.S. on Univisión.
