What have our EAL students been up to?

In 6th grade, Shirley has been learning about figurative language. Here are some idioms about food that she has learned more about.


In 1st Grade, Arina has been learning about the four seasons and how to describe the weather. She created a Pic Collage on her favorite season, winter! She was also awarded the “Star Student Award” for 1B! Congratulations, Arina!

In 5th grade, students finished up their unit on identity with a poster presentation. After interviewing their family members about their names, students took the answers and created a poster. They then presented to the class as they were being videotaped. Next, they will watch their videos and reflect on their performance.
