Congratulations to Saera Kanda, Shunsuke Omura, Tiana Cruz, Santiago Diaz, Marco Filous, Diane Bass, and Kathy Seyalioglu!

Students in the morning World Geography class enjoyed a visit from Mrs. Horup, Vivi’s mother, yesterday. She shared with us her experiences growing up in the province of French Quebec, as well as some samples of French Canadian cuisine. It was a most enjoyable way to synthesize from the textbook to real life!
