Four Moorhead ABE students took their first of four official GED exams in the past week. Vista Center for Education houses a Certified GED Testing Center for our enrolled ABE students to take their official GED exams onsite. Students prepare for and schedule each of these exams (social studies, science, math, & language arts) once they are academically ready.
Concordia College's Dr. Lisa Twomey and students from her Inquiry class shared writings from the fall partnership with Moorhead ABE and current immigration data for the Fargo/Moorhead area. Two of the college students in attendance also spoke to the importance of opportunities for their refugee mothers to be able to attend English classes to further their own education. Shout out to Lisa and her tireless efforts to connect this community!
There will be no school for Moorhead students on Monday, Jan. 16. Classes will resume on Tuesday, Jan. 17.
Lori Mattison, TRIO Advisor, was at ABE to share a presentation entitled, "College...Is It For You?" to the ABE participants who are curious about the academic, financial and time commitments that it takes to be successful in college. In her regular visits to ABE, she also provides: one-on-one student meetings, online college search help, regional college tours, scholarship information, assistance with FAFSA & college applications, and a number of other college-centered presentations to ABE students.
"Generated by Love: Let Our Voices Be Heard and Our Works Be Seen" Moorhead ABE students along with the Fall 2022 Concordia College Inquiry Seminar students are invited to participated in a concurrent session and social hour on Martin Luther King Jr. Day at Concordia College. Students will share their experiences this semester, the poetry created, and their own assimilation experiences coming to the United States. Contact your ABE teacher for more details.
The students in the morning Beginning ELL class at Moorhead Adult Education learned the similarities and differences between a snowman and a sandman. After the lesson they tried their hands at building their own sandmen in the comfort of the classroom. Many of these students grew up in warmer regions of the world that didn't receive snow so this was a fun, new experience.
Superintendent Dr. Brandon Lunak met with Moorhead Adult Education learners to talk to them about the highlights of 2022 for Moorhead Area Public Schools and to teach them how to navigate the site. Thank you, Dr. Lunak!
