— By Señora Lopez, Spanish Teacher
Congratulations to the many world language students from Emerson School who attained national recognition for excellent performance on the 2015 National Spanish Examinations. Students from Emerson School earned a total of 3 gold, 3 silver and 5 bronze medals, along with 14 honorable mentions.
“Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 157,000 students participating in 2015.”
Students from Emerson School have a long history of high achievement on these exams. The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
