Yesterday we held our ESL Exit Ceremony for students that are exiting the ESL program. These students exiting the program passed the ELPA 21 test last year with all 4s and/or 5s in the four domains on the test. They also passed two other major tests such as the ACT Aspire, MAPs, or their semester tests. We are so very proud of all of these students! Great job, Wranglers!

Our Creative Writing students took a trip to visit George Elementary earlier this week to read their original children's books to their students. Our Creative Writing students absolutely loved collaborating with George Elementary, and they look forward to doing something with them again in the future.

A couple of months ago, our Creative Writing students entered a competition created by the Young Writers organization, and several of our students' works were selected for publication! George Junior High will receive a copy of the book, and a copy will be sent to The Library of Congress. This was a major confidence boost for these students, as they are actually seeing how their voice CAN impact others!
