Meet an Upton 4th grade student who won the Youth Recognition award, sponsored by Royal Oak Youth Assistance. This dedicated young lady went out of her way to translate for a new Spanish family, and helped a second grader learn English. Royal Oak's ESL Program is proud!
Thank you Mia for your bright, welcoming smile, love of learning, and helpful spirit! On Monday, April 27th, Mia was given a special award from Royal Oak Youth Assistance. She was nominated at Upton Elementary not only for overcoming the challenge of learning English and adjusting to a new school, but also for sharing her English skills and friendship with a new 2nd grade student who arrived from Mexico. Mia is always looking for ways to help others, and learned English so quickly that she was able to help our other Spanish speaking students settle comfortably in our school. Thank you!!
