Elias Raymundo-Tercero - 8th Grade at CMS

Elias Raymundo-Tercero, eighth grade

Elias Raymundo-Tercero spoke no English when he arrived in Crete from Guatemala in second grade. Within three years, he mastered English, his third language. In eighth grade, he excels at math, taking Algebra 1, and has received the Renaissance Award for students with a 3.66 or higher GPA.

Elias credits Crete’s Reading Newcomer Class and his teachers, particularly Perla Jaimes, for helping him learn English but admits that learning things quickly is his most outstanding quality. He also appreciates the technology available at CPS. Elias competes in football and track and wants to join the soccer team in high school.
