The high school's literary magazine, "Dimensions," was presented with a National Award of Excellence for Student Literacy Magazines by the National Council of Teachers of English. In our English Department, there is shared commitment in fostering a love of writing among our students who participate in such extra-curricular programs. This collective effort certainly contributes directly to the departmental goal of generating a "Culture of Literacy."
Congratulations to Mr. Sheehan and Ms. Moldovan, the advisors of "Dimensions," as well as for all the student writers and editors upon receiving this prestigious award. We are all proud of this achievement!
