"September marked the final stretch of the school year at Plan Escalon. As the month started everyone busy with exams and then prepared for their last visit home before the final marking period. Their final responsibility before leaving was to participate in the Independence Day Parade.
The students and marching band were diligent in practicing their marching skills and songs days before the Parade. The honor students marched together wearing ribbons, a group of young ladies wore the names of each of the countries 'districts', and yet another group dressed in the culture's dance attire and performed the recognized national dance.
Near the front of the line were the senior students dressed in their internship business suits. These same seniors were also preparing to complete their career internship requirements for graduation, which began the following week.
This month has also been the ground breaking of our newest building project. It is exciting to report that construction of the Multi-Purpose Building is underway! The ground was leveled as truck after truck moved the dirt to other locations on campus. Ditches are now being excavated to create the foundation and constructing the re-rod columns that will be strategically placed. And the race with time and the calendar is underway!"
