ATTENTION STUDENTS:

This week is Columbus Day week.  It is required by State Law to teach about this day.

Christopher Columbus, an Italian explorer, sailed to find a route to the Spice Islands and Far East.  Land was sighted on October 12, 1492.  His voyage was a world changing event.

The post Columbian world brought death from European diseases, while others were enslaved or mistreated by colonial powers.

Plants and technology were exchanged between the old world and the new.  Potatoes, Tomatoes, and Chocolate are from the new world.

Those who are of Italian heritage celebrate this day to honor Columbus’ courage and the dawn of the great age of exploration.
