IDEA's English language learner scholars recently successfully completed the ACCESS assessment to measure their proficiency in English. To celebrate this accomplishment, the scholars will take a field trip later this month to eat lunch at Las Comadres in Hyattsville, Maryland, a restaurant co-owned by IDEA parent Sara Iraheta. Las Comadres loosely translates to "the godmothers" and opened last fall.
The scholars who will be enjoying authentic Salvadoran cuisine include Kendi Trejos, Fernando Mercado, Alejandra Carrillo, David Flores, Jennifer Chevez, Ismael Hernandez, and Kevin Torres. Ms. McCrae and Mr. Romero will chaperone the trip.
