"Spanish and Bilingual Spanish/English Books"
Grant Writer - Suzannah Wood, GMS 8th Grade Spanish Teacher
Congratulations to Lydia Wickard for placing first in the state on the high school Level 2 National Spanish Exam in 2011. This is especially tremendous since Lydia was still in middle school at the time! We are proud to say that a Foundation 51 grant for Spanish books helped her with this achievement.
Lydia says, “I like learning through reading so the books helped me get ahead”.
“Lydia has spent a lot of time with the books in the Spanish Department's lending library," says her mom, Louisa. "The books were one of the first extensions recommended by her teacher, Suzannah Wood. Hooray for that Foundation 51 funding!”
