Eagle Brief May 11 – May 25


Juliana Cruz

Hands raised in front of their faces, juniors Juliana Cruz and Samiya King check the contrast of their skin tones against their suits for a project for their American Sign Language class. The class requires distinct clothing, in order for people to comprehend hand signs. Students at Prosper are able to take the ASL course up to four levels.

Editor’s note: This is the last Eagle Brief of the school year.
