By June 7, 2022News

Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade Spanish students for their excellent performance on the 2022 National Spanish Examinations.

Students earned a total of 1 gold, 4 silver and 5 bronze medals along with 8 honorable mentions.  “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said lisa Greenman, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 73,000 students participating in 2022.”

Pennfield students have a long history of high achievement on these exams and were taught by Spanish teachers, Peter Dorrien-Traisci and Sarah Richards.

The National Spanish Examinations are administered each year in grades 6 through 12, and are sponsored by the American Association of Teachers of Spanish and Portuguese.
