Grant Spotlight: Headphones

Debra Alanis and the Language department were the 2020 Grant Recipient of classroom headsets.

The grant provided the English and Spanish departments headsets for each student in the classroom.  This allowed the students to work independently on their different programs, assignments and lessons without interuping the other students and their lessons.

Mrs. Alanis said that the “students have loved having access to the headphones and use them daily.  They have handled them with care.”


They look like they are working hard and intently learning!  Thank you to Mrs. Alanis and her students for sharing how they are using their new equipment to creatively learn languages.
