Multi Language Learners
As we approach the end of the school year, we wanted to share and celebrate some exciting news with you. An impressive number of our seniors received recognition from the State of RI as well as the Town of Johnston for their ability to speak a second language.
All of these students appreciate the importance of knowing more than one language in this world. We offer congratulations to them and know their gifts of multilingualism will open many opportunities for them in the future.
A special note of thanks to Emilia Ruggiero for her dedication to helping these students attain this distinction.
