Spanish at WTCS

WTCS Middle & High School Spanish students recently participated in Wooly Week!

Señor Wooly is an interactive website, using catchy songs to engage learners of Spanish. This was the 3rd annual Wooly Week.

Spanish teacher, Mrs. Abuhl, wanted the whole school to get involved, so all elementary kids were invited to participate in a Wooly Week Art Contest. Look at these amazing works of art!!   Way to go CRU!


Spanish is offered to every student at WTCS.  Mrs. Laura Abuhl is the head Spanish teacher.  Mrs. Lorena Haugen is our Spanish support staff.

Mrs. Laura Abuhl teaches 6-12th grades.  She uses innovative strategies to deliver Comprehensible Input which is necessary for language acquisition. Trinity students often remark how FUN she makes learning. 

Spanish I, II, III & IV are offered upper grades.

WTCS’ FIRST LEGO League (FLL) Team, the Trinity Technicians, will be participating in the Minot Regional Qualifier at Minot State University on Saturday, January 12th.

“With adult Coaches to guide them, FIRST® LEGO® League teams (up to 10 members in grades 4-8) apply science, engineering, and math concepts, plus a big dose of imagination, to develop solutions to real-world challenges. They also design, build, and program LEGO MINDSTORMS®-based robots to perform autonomous ‘missions’ on a playing field. Along the way, they develop critical thinking, team-building, and presentation skills.”

In the morning, teams are judged in three areas: project presentation, core values, & robot design. In the afternoon, 13 robotics teams compete against each other in space-themed missions. The top three teams from the day move on to the North Dakota FLL State Championship Tournament in Grand Forks in February.

The Trinity Technicians would like to thank team sponsors: AE2S & the North Dakota Society of Professional Engineers-Chapter 5. We appreciate your support as the team grows!

Watch for more pics from the big event on Saturday!
