PUENTE Program

For one of Mr. Tañada's seventh grade classes, the bridge to high school and college became more real. This bridge is an additional English class and it's called, appropriately, Puente. In the Puente middle school program students will focus on the writing process, develop a range of writing types in a writing portfolio, read multicultural text, non-fiction and fiction, like Mexican American/Chicano/Latino literature, take field study trips to universities and museums and explore the rewards of community service. As a Puente-trained team Mr. Tañada and counselor Mrs. Hernandez help students be ready for the rigors high school and college.
