Student of the Month


Congratulations to the Spanish student of the month, May Baltz. "She is a great student and person. Her love for the language and culture are evident in how she excels at Spanish. She works very hard and is no stranger that if you put in hard work, you can achieve the goals you have set. Maya has taken her world language studies a step further by applying and being accepted to go on a rotary exchange program to Peru!"

- Mr. Izquierdo
