Please join us in congratulating Jaclyn Kotora for her recent recognition with the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers. Jaclyn received Honorable Mention in the Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for two art submissions and a written work. These are remarkable achievements. 

Several prominent artists received similar recognition as a teenager including Andy Warhol.  

The art department is so proud of Jaclyn's dedication to her craft and her vision. During Jaclyn's four years in art classes, she has contributed to making the art wing a welcoming and creative community for students and faculty. 

Thank you to Art Teacher Mrs. Kimberly Batti-Valovina for this amazing news!

On Tuesday, January 31st, Teachers & Supervisors of the elective areas described our various elective programs to the students during their gym class in order to introduce them to the variety of options that they have available to them for scheduling next year. Parts of our drum line and choir performed for the students to preview what they could be part moving into next year. 

Food Truck Festival in Spanish 2CP

Students in Señora de Diego’s Spanish 2CP class completed their MP 2 Integrated Performance Assessments.  An Integrated Performance Assessment (IPA) engages the students in the 3-modes of communication: interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational. After researching authentic cuisine, developing a menu and creating a food truck, the students participated in an activity where they visited each other’s food trucks and engaged in improvised conversations.  Each improvised conversation focused on a different scenario; for example, reviewing the menu for a vegan option, asking the food truck employee for a dietary substitution or buying and enjoying food items.  This is just another example of how the students are learning to use their language skills in everyday life.
