Parents of ESL Students,
We need to ask you to complete the survey about WIDA testing. WIDA is the yearly English test to measure how much your student has progressed since last year. You should have received a text with a link to this website (https://scstn.powerschool.com/public/). This is important because we need to know whether or not you plan to send your child to school for this one day of testing.

The University at Timbuktu
The documentation of education in Africa in this age often forgets to mention the former glory and prestige of the university at Timbuktu, which was one of the very earliest in the world.
The rich legacy of these early institutions is often not accorded the recognition it deserves as far as the discourse of Africa's educational history is concerned. With Timbuktu, Africans were advanced more than anyone could have fathomed at the time.
"We Shall Overcome"
“We Shall Overcome” and other protest songs provided the soundtrack to the Civil Rights Movement. The period saw the U.S. confront one of the most complex and controversial issues in its history—race relations. Finally, the U.S. promised a measure of equality for its black citizens.
Alicia Agusta Ball
Alicia Augusta Ball was an American chemist. At the University of Hawaii, Ball investigated the chemical makeup and active principle of Piper methysticum (kava) for her master's thesis. Because of this work, she was contacted by Dr. Harry T. Hollmann at Kalihi Hospital in Hawaii, who needed an assistant for his research into the treatment of leprosy.
