Happy February!

The Home Language Campaign Mini-Grant awardees wrapped up their projects at the end of January. Keep an eye out for a blog post coming soon about how they went and the exciting news they have to share in their final reports.

If you haven’t heard already, students from Rainier Beach High School have some wonderful news to share after participating in the third annual Washington State High School Ethics Bowl.
