We honor our students and colleagues. We see you, hear you, and value you. To learn more about Unit 4's LGBTQIA2S+ Task Force, please visit: https://www.champaignschools.org/page/lgbtqia2s.

Unit 4's Multilingual Language (MLL) Department and ELPAC (English Language Proficiency Assessment) collaborated for a celebratory end-of-the-school year picnic. Nearly 300 MLL students and their families joined us for food, games, and fun at Hessel Park. There were free books, Kona Ice snow cones, face painting, lawn games, as well as a raffle for a cultural basket and a bicycle. Thanks to all who made this a huge success!
