Community College Comes to MHS, Students and Parents are Invited to a Town Hall Meeting, September 28th, 7-9pm
Zanker students and parents convened last week for an evening of teamwork alongside principals, coordinators, and teachers to look at English Learner progress data and to learn how students can become fluent in English. Principal Lee and Assistant Principal Padilla created an environment to ensure that our EL students and parents felt valued and included.
