Students Earn Global Seal of Biliteracy Emily Arredondo-Galvan, Mariana Cabrera Canenguez, Michelle Jimenez, Odibel Campuzano, and Viridiana Velez, seniors at Watertown High School, have earned the prestigious Global Seal of Biliteracy. The Global Seal of Biliteracy is an international language certificate that recognizes and celebrates their level of proficiency in two or more languages. The Global Seal of Biliteracy enables programs and businesses across the world to quickly validate a student’s language skills to aide in advanced placement in a post-secondary language program, help students earn scholarships, and provide opportunities for employment. The Global Seal of Biliteracy allows employers to easily verify students’ language skills and be confident that they possess valuable soft skills linked to multilingualism. In today’s global economy, proficiency in multiple languages has tremendous value. We are proud that Emily, Mariana, Michelle, Odibel, and Viridiana of the Watertown Unified School District are now part of this global community of multilingual individuals. We congratulate our students on this significant achievement and look forward to seeing the opportunities that their Global Seal of Biliteracy will bring them in the future.

There is nothing like international friendships! The Watertown-Heringen exchange program exists to help create friendships between students at WHS and our partner school in Germany. No knowledge of German is required—the program is open to all WHS students, including incoming freshmen. Open your home to a German student and experience the fun of introducing them to American culture! Travel to Germany and experience the excitement of discovering a new culture! Twenty German students will be here October 12-20 and WHS students will travel in June of 2025, traveling for a week and spending a week with a host family. Participants can host or travel or do both. See Frau Schneider in S274 or email schneiderk@mywusd.org to get information about being a part of the exchange.
