The Webster Vienna LEADS program is in the Christmas Spirit! After presenting the LEADS Fall 2019 semester project, students took some time out of their busy studying schedule to build gingerbread houses together. Teams of 3 or 4 had to figure out how to construct the houses, decide together on how to decorate it, and make sure it was stable enough to transport.
The Cake Tree, a local bakery in the second district, provided all materials and great support and advice through the evening.
On Halloween, students celebrated the American holiday by going to three haunted houses together. The Student Resource Center sponsored the event, and all faced their fears of zombies, clowns, and interesting oddities.
Students then went on to enjoy the Student Government Association's annual Halloween Party.
