A Congressional hearing on immigration in AP Government
Students continue to inspire us with their engagement in meaningful class projects. Last week students in Chemistry created biodiesel. In AP Government, students participated in a Congressional hearing on immigration. Congressional committee members questioned experts and witnesses while members of the press recorded the proceedings for further analysis.

These types of learning experiences help them prepare for the challenges and opportunities in college, and for their responsibility as citizens.

Here are some additional ways you can help:
