Ms. Dalesio, the officers, and all of the current members are very hopeful that the new members will uphold the prestigious society and the four pillars with pride.

Ms. Dalesio’s ELA 12 classes have been studying Chaucer’s “Canterbury Tales”. The students were assigned a group project to write a poem about their own pilgrim, and then to take the class on a pilgrimage that their pilgrim might have gone on. The students had creative and fun ideas such as impersonations of teachers, bakers, and hippies. This was a fun way for the students to get creative and channel the writing styles of Geoffrey Chaucer. By: Paige Hilderbrand
