Congratulazioni, High School West students!

April 28, 2023

Congratulations, and congratulazioni to High School West’s Olivia Wolber and Haley Sasbon for their placement in the American Association of Teachers of Italian (AATI) competition!

 Wolber, a junior in Ms. Barricelli's Level 4 Italian Class, selected a contemporary Italian song, "E Piu Ti Penso". The song is a duet sung in Italian by Andrea Bocelli and Ariana Grande. This is Olivia's 2nd time participating in the Annual AATI Contest.  

Haley, a junior in Ms. Barricelli's Level 4 Italian Class, recited an excerpt from Dante Alighieri's "La Divina Commedia". She selected Canto 1 from "Inferno", a poem studied in class this year as part of our unit on Letteratura: I Tre Fiorentini. This is Haley's fourth time participating in the Annual AATI Contest. 

Olivia and Haley competed against students from school districts all over Long Island.

Both students will be awarded a medal and certificate next month.
