Chinese Program Celebrates Five Years at Saugus

Five students and a teacher from Saugus High School's sister school - Gao Xin No. 1 High School - have arrived from X'ian, China.

The three Chinese boys and two girls are accompanied by their teacher, Yanjun Wu, who will be on campus all semester helping with the Chinese classes, assisting her students, and visiting classrooms to learn about the U.S. educational system and teaching methods.

The students and their teacher will spend one semester at Saugus. Patty Stephenson, World Language Department chair, is at the helm of the Chinese program which is in its fifth year at Saugus. All of the students as well as Mrs. Wu are being hosted by Saugus families.

Modernized Classrooms Greet Returning Hart Students
Students and staff at Hart High School were pleased to find nearly 20 modernized classrooms ready and waiting for them on the first day of school. Contractors and administrators worked hard to get the classrooms up and functioning before teachers and students returned, although some finish work remains. Newly modernized classrooms have up-to-date technology, lighting and storage/preparation space.

The "summer sprint" of accelerated construction also saw the school's southern access road expanded from one lane to two and underground site work done in preparation for pouring foundations on the school's new science building. Some new restroom facilities are still under construction and some additional classroom buildings have been emptied so modernization can continue.
