Alliance was fortunate to be chosen as one of the local schools to be given copies of American Born Chinese by Gene Yang and to see him speak about the book. His illuminating and humorous talk outlined the personal, cultural, and literary origins of the book. Big thanks to Multnomah County Library for choosing our school and to Mr. Yang for visiting Portland!
Alliance at Meek was one of several Oregon schools to receive a grant from Wells Fargo in partnership with the Portland Trailblazers. Thanks to the grant, the school will be able to purchase books and equipment for our library project.
