Every year our eighth graders take the National Spanish Exam. This exam tests vocabulary and grammar, as well as both reading and listening comprehension skills. Congratulations to the following students who attained national recognition by placing in these categories:
Oro (Gold): Katherine Hawes and Andrew Gioannetti. These two students not only placed nationally but won cash prizes for their placement in the State of Arizona NSE competition.
Bronce (Bronze): Brooke Dyson and Cameron Strong
Honor (Honor): Elliot Chubon, Madeline Greene, Willa Kleiner, Andrés Peralta, Maya Leuthold, and Sofía Peña
Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, the National Director of the Exams said, “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious, because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 157,000 students participating in 2017.”
Way to go!
