Look at Magdalena Elementary School

The elementary school in Magdalena, New Mexico, has made the news. That is my hometown school. It is not in the building used when we were in school but this is quite a big deal it seems.

The article starts out, "The National Association of Secondary School Principals (NASSP), in cooperation with the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP), is pleased to announce that since the official launch of the National Elementary Honor Society™ (NEHS), thirteen schools from across the country have requested to participate in the new program."

Very nice for our small town.

Congrats on the hometown recognition! (with alumni like you how could they miss? :-)

Jo Castillo said...

Teresa, Heh, heh. I hadn't thought about it that way. Thank you.

The school is small. We only graduated 15 in our senior class. I think now it has grown to double, maybe. They have students from Alamo, the Navajo Reservation that is nearby. The whole town is arount 800 people.

Your blog is always so interesting Jo, taking us through your journeys with color and great verbosity.
I love visiting with you.
