This week we had an opportunity to highlight some of the great things going on in our school with Secretary Duncan. Our students got tested on their math skills as they were grilled on converting percents to decimals to fractions. We were all very impressed with Antonio Campbell, NaShaya Maxwell and Johanna Funes as they all held up well and Secretary Duncan even created a graphic organizer tool to assist them.
