Fayetteville High School had 38 students receive the Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy! Adopted first by California in 2011, the Seal of Biliteracy is now recognized in 36 states and Washington D.C. According to the official website, “the Seal of Biliteracy encourages students to pursue biliteracy, honors the skills our students attain, and can be evidence of skills that are attractive to future employers and college admissions offices.” Since the 2017 pilot year a total of 812 Arkansas students from 31 high schools around the state have attained this certification across eleven languages other than English (Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Gujarati, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish). The Arkansas Seal of Biliteracy is awarded each spring and fall to students in grades 9 through 12 and is sponsored by the Arkansas Foreign Language Teachers Association (AFLTA) and the Arkansas Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (ARKTESOL). The Arkansas Department of Education officially endorsed the Seal in June 2018.

January's Harvest of the Month is the stupendous SWEET POTATO! This month students and staff will sample Ranchero Roasted Sweet Potatoes seasoned with Tex Mex-style spices. Sweet potatoes for the taste tests and winter menus were grown at Dickey Farms in Tontitown, Arkansas. Did you know, because of their sweet flavor and creamy texture, mashed sweet potatoes can be used instead of fat and sugar in many desserts (i.e. sweet potato brownies)? #harvestofthemonth #F2S #arkansasgrown
