This week is National Foreign Language Week, and St. Marys Area High School hosted its third annual Foreign Language Day this past Friday, with around 125 foreign language students from five area high schools - Brockway, Clearfield, Johnsonburg, Kane, and Elk County Catholic - taking part in the event.
Christa Wensel, St. Marys Area Spanish teacher and Spanish Club Advisor, explained that while this marked the school's third year of hosting the event, it originally got its start in Kane.
