Fossil Ridge High School Spanish 4 students receive Cesar Chavez award
Congratulation to Fossil Ridge High School Spanish 4 students who recently received a Cesar Chavez High School award for their work with younger students. The students were honored in March during the Cesar Chavez CSU & Community Celebration.
Last year the students completed group projects about the importance of Cesar Chavez, his fight for justice and issues surrounding working conditions of the migrant population. This year, the same students extended their role as language learners by teaching Spanish to 7th and 8th graders at Preston Junior High.
