Martin Luther King, Jr.'s English Language Development teacher, Mrs. Aragon, recognized students who were the top Imagine Learning users in their class.
Imagine Learning is a digital program designed to help students improve their reading, writing and English language skills. The top users are identified based on the number of weeks using the program and/or the amount of hours spent using the program.
At least 3 sets of siblings earned the top user spots across various grade levels. The winners either picked up their prize at the school or received them when they arrived for the in-person tutoring program.
Thank you to Mrs. Aragon for the customized pencil pouches and goodie bags she made for the winners. Thank you to Ms. Montiel, bilingual para, and Ms. Lopez, Student Advocate, for their assistance with this project.
