New Americans Graduate from BHS [SIV228] 

6/17/11: Over 200 students graduated from Burlington High School Friday morning. For more than 60 of those graduates, English is not their native language. Yessi Gar-Elnabi held a graduation party at King Street Center earlier in the week to celebrate this accomplishment with some of his fellow seniors, teachers and principal.

Music: Bearquarium, "The Punch Within"

Since 2014, Seven Days has allowed readers to comment on all stories posted on our website. While we’ve appreciated the suggestions and insights, the time has come to shut them down — at least temporarily.

While we champion free speech, facts are a matter of life and death during the coronavirus pandemic, and right now Seven Days is prioritizing the production of responsible journalism over moderating online debates between readers.

To criticize, correct or praise our reporting, please send us a letter to the editor. Or send us a tip. We’ll check it out and report the results.

Online comments may return when we have better tech tools for managing them. Thanks for reading.
