On the evening of Wednesday, May 28, the English as a Second Language (ESL) department held its annual awards celebration in the South Cafeteria at Walt Whitman High School. Each of the ESL teachers presented awards ranging from most improved to highest achievement in the subject area. Many parents and friends were present to recognize the students’ accomplishments.

The evening was a true celebration that included food and a DJ. Students and staff danced before and after the awards were given out. Ms. Mendez and Ms. Rivera, two ESL paraprofessionals, were recognized for their hard work throughout the school year. Ms. Velez, guidance counselor for the female ESL students, was recognized for her many years of work at Whitman, as she will be retiring at the end of the current school year. The high school administration would like to thank Ms. Jordan and Ms. Rodrigues for organizing this fun-filled event.
