Students Receive National Spanish Exam Accolades

By May 21, 2021News
Congratulations to our 7th and 8th grade Spanish students for their excellent performance on the 2020 National Spanish Examinations. Spanish teachers, Peter Dorrien Traisci and Sarah Richards, take pride in the fact that students from The Pennfield School have a long history of high achievement on these exams, and this year is no different.
Pennfield students earned gold, silver, and bronze medals along with honorable mentions.  “Attaining a medal or honorable mention for any student on the National Spanish Examinations is very prestigious,” said Kevin Cessna-Buscemi, National Director of the Exams, “because the exams are the largest of their kind in the United States with over 150,000 students participating in 2020.”
