2017 Graduate Sabiyumva Sadock Becomes U.S. Citizen

On September 28 one of our 2017 graduates, Sabiyumva Sadock, became a U.S. citizen. Originally from Burundi, Sadock and his family emigrated to the U.S. when Sadock was just a young boy. Sadock worked with Ms. Martha Williams, our English second language tutor, to earn his high school diploma. Ms. Williams was also with Sadock each step of his journey to becoming a U.S. citizen. We are so proud of Sadock and congratulate our newest fellow citizen! Pictured is Sadock with his certificate. In the other picture, Ms. Williams is on Sadock's right and his former homeroom teacher, Ms. Lynn is on his left.

Painting Pollinators

On Friday, September 8 The Foodbank held a harvest festival in their garden area. One of the activity stations they had was for individuals to paint a pollinator. Pollinators are plants, bees, and insects. The Foodbank had numerous different pollinators cut out of sheet metal. The idea was to have visitors paint a pollinator. All of the painted pollinators would then be hung on the chain link fence around the garden area.

There were a number of unpainted pollinators left over after the festival. On Friday, September 15 a group of our students painted the remainder of the pollinators. Our students hope to be able to help finish the project by hanging the pollinators on the fence at the garden area.
