Students awaiting turn to speak

ENLACE students became UN Delegates the week before vacation when they participated in their first Model United Nations simulation. They had spent the entire third quarter researching their countries, preparing speeches, and practicing debate skills to get ready for a simulation on global pandemic response. They did an incredible job.

Mayor with ELACE students and teachers

Mayor Dan Rivera came in to speak with ENLACE students. Students were given the chance to ask any question regarding himself and his involvement with the city. They covered many topics like his service in the Army, his mother who imigrated to the U.S, and even openings for student interns in the Mayors office.
