Last night a students from our class was honored at Sandalwood High School. She is of Armenian heritage and when she came to Chets Creek last year she was able to take advantage of services for children who are learning English as a second language. She is one of 262 students at our school that speak 21 other languages besides English! It is like having our very own mini-United Nations. She has an opportunity to work with Mrs. Bort, who is a native Spanish speaker, each week. Mrs. Bort chose her to represent all of Chets Creek for her academic achievement this year. Last night she received a medal as the "Chets Creek Second Language Learner of the Year!" We are so proud!
