ELL Children’s Storybook
Our MS/HS ELL students completed finals week with visits to our elementary classrooms. This culminating class project required ELL students to write a children’s storybook while employing grammar rules, writing strategies, and themes such as overcoming fear, resolving conflict, and honoring friendship. Colorful illustrations were additionally included in these 2′ X 4′ poster books specifically designed for little hearts and minds. Our ELL students had never written a children’s storybook, nor had they read to a group of children. Their written reflections revealed an educational process that was considerate of their academic and personal growth.
Enrollment in AP Courses for 2017-2018
Rising juniors and seniors who have requested placement in AP courses will be notified by mid-June through email if their requests are approved. Each AP course requires completion of a summer assignment and costs an additional fee of $140. Students should look in their school email account for the required summer assignment in early June. Payment is due to the Accounting office by the end of August.
