Halloween is one of my favorite annual celebrations and what made this year’s celebration so marvelous was that the whole week leading up to it was full of fun Halloween-themed activities.

On Tuesday, I was fortunate to observe Mr. Skardal’s English 12 class who were wrapping up a unit’s work and were in a reflective mood.

Dinner in Saudi Arabia

Sep 27, '15

Aching hands permanently clenched, we were ready to serve a pinch of lamb and four falafel balls onto the next eager students’ plate.

We served plate after plate of AL Kabsa, Lamb...
