Día de Portafolio de Seniors

Día de Portafolio de Seniors de Leadership es uno de los días más significativos del último año. Nuestros estudiantes crean y preparan sus portafolios durante la escuela secundaria. El portafolio es una colección de su trabajo que muestra el crecimiento en nuestros cuatro resultados a travez de toda la escuela: la Responsabilidad Personal, la Responsabilidad Social, el Pensamiento Critico, y la Comunicación. Los portafolios se presentan a los estudiantes de cursos inferiores para ilustrar su madurez académica y de comportamiento, y para demostrar sus habilidades de presentación. Pasar el portafolio de Seniors es un requisito de graduación. Si su hijo es una estudiante Senior, eche un vistazo a su portafolio y aprecie su trabajo duro.

Día de Baile de San Valentín                                                                                                       Leadership y June Jordan será el anfitrión de “A Night to Remember”, un dia de baile de San Valentín el viernes 13 de febrero a partir de 8 – 11 pm.
