Pine Lake Prep played a great game against Union Academy yesterday. SPORK was out shooting our SPORKcannon, along with selling 50/50 raffle tickets. Thank you to everyone who supported SPORK. Last night we sold to help robotics teams through the Carolinas that schools were flooded due to hurricane Florence. Thank you to everyone that came out to support our team.
Team SPORK would like to thank Enrique González for taking some time out of his busy schedule to come to talk to us about his experience in America. Enrique is a senior from Spain, who is staying with SPORK’s Ryan True.
Q: What is your favorite part about America?
E: I like a lot about America, everyone has treated me well, I feel really comfortable here. One of the things I enjoy the most about living here is the schools. For example, Pine Lake has been something that has caught my attention, the way it works, it’s very different than the way things are back in Spain. One of my favorite days was when I went to the University of Charlotte, I was completely amazed by the number of buildings, how big it was, everything seemed great.
Q: Do you guys have robotics teams back in Spain?
E: I bet there are but I haven’t seen any. I go to a public high school and this is unthinkable. We have a technology class in which they built a robot, it was the most ridiculous thing, a complete disaster. The robot didn’t work at all.
Q: Do you guys have STEM classes in Spain?
E: Yes, when you get to high school you get to choose one of three paths, one that centers around social science, economy, and marketing. One for humanities, which is all about history. Then you have the technology one in which you engineer and use technology, chemistry, physics, and math
Come support the PLP varsity soccer team today as they meet their rivals, the Community School of Davidson Spartans at the Grey. And don’t miss your opportunity to catch a Team SPORK shirt that will be fired off by our amazing SPORKcannon during half time!
Good luck PLP and we will see you at half time!
SPORK shirts are here! They come in blue, pink, and white. Be sure to go out to football and soccer games to have a chance to get one. As we get closer to the dates we’ll post which shirts are being shot off at each game!
Team SPORK came out to support the Pine Lake Prep soccer team. At Half-time, the team shot off shirts to the crowd! Congrats to Pine Lake for winning their game!
