Freeport High School sophomore Mia Sorrentino took third place in the New York State Association for Bilingual Education Student Essay Contest. Ms. Michelle Rendon, world languages department teacher, encouraged her students to participate in this valuable writing activity.  

Mia received a medal, a certificate and $50 gift card at the NYSABE’s Awards Luncheon.

For the contest, students from grades 9-12 were tasked to write an essay about the importance of being biliterate based on several questions, including why is being biliterate a valuable asset to our society? What are the advantages of being biliterate for you personally? And how will these skills open new doors and provide opportunities for you as a member of our global society?

The district is very proud of Mia’s accomplishments.
