Great News! On Tuesday November 28, 2017 at the Riverside Convention Center, 4 outstanding students at Banning High School received the Riverside County Seal of Multiliteracy. The Seal of Multiliteracy is an award given by the Riverside County Office of Education (RCOE) in partnership with school districts in recognition of students who have attained high levels of proficiency in English and at least one other world language by the time of their high school graduation.
RCOE and partnering districts recognize that multiliteracy skills increase job options for our students and prepare students for the labor market needs for multilingual workers in their local communities and beyond. Moreover, multilingualism strengthens inter-group relationships, affirms the value of linguistic and cultural diversity, promotes civic participation, and honors the many cultures that form our community.
I am pleased to announce the following BHS students were the recipients that earned this prestigious recognition for having attained proficiency in the Spanish language:
Maria Lopez, Grade 11
Nathalie Mercado, Grade 11
Nicole Padilla Soto, Grade 12
Louis Bryan Sanchez, Grade 12
We are extremely proud of these students for this honor and recognition.
