An air of festivity filled Longfellow’s new cafeteria the evening of Thursday, April 27th when students and family members gathered to celebrate English Language Learners who’ve attained English proficiency.
The annual Reclassification Ceremony honored the 117 students who were certified as fluent this year. The event included remarks by Superintendent Evans, School Board Member Beatriz Leyva-Cutler and three of the honored students. A special treat came at the end — generous portions of cakes decorated with icing saying, “Bilingualism is Beautiful.”
