Students and staff gather to celebrate and honor the ESL students for completing another semester of ESL courses with awards and certificates. Following a small formal ceremony, the attendees celebrated with music and a potluck dinner created from our student's family recipes and traditional fare. Many of our students will move into the next level of ESL instruction, and we say goodbye to a handful of students who have graduated out of the program!






Birthday Celebration

ESL Nina


High Intermediate/Advanced ESL students celebrate muliple birthdays. Happy Birthday to all and to Ms. Nina, ESL teacher!











Bruna D. was nominated by her ESL teacher, Mrs. Jalt. Bruna is extremely hardworking and holds good attendance. I am impressed with her eagerness to learn and responsible nature. She puts in an effort to make up missed days and work. Bruna returned to the program after taking a break of one semester.
