FORTY-SIX NEW LONDON SENIORS TO BE RECOGNIZED FOR BILITERACY INTERACTIVE ARCADE COMING TO MOHEGAN SUN EXPO CENTER
New London Public Schools on Monday will award with the Seal of Biliteracy to 46 graduating seniors who have demonstrated proficiency in English and at least one other language.
The Seal of Biliteracy is placed on the high school diplomas and transcripts of graduates, a reference to a student’s ability to read and write in those languages at a high level of proficiency, in addition to their speaking and listening skills.
The Seal of Biliteracy was signed into law by the governor in June 2017 and Connecticut is one of approximately 30 states currently awarding this special designation.
The Seal of Biliteracy will be awarded to students from New London High School and the Science and Technology Magnet High School of Southeastern Connecticut in one of three languages: Spanish, French and Tagalog, which is spoken in the Philippines.
Students will be formally recognized at Class Day awards
Mohegan — Mohegan Sun announced Thursday that it plans to open Game On, a 23,000-square-foot interactive arcade, sports bar and restaurant, this winter inside its new convention center.
Game On will feature a luxury bowling alley, pingpong tables, billiards, darts and arcade games in addition to multiple high-definition screens and a 65-foot bar. It will be located on a lower level of the new Earth Expo & Convention Center, which is set to host Barrett-Jackson’s Northeast Auction of collector cars next week.
The new venue will accommodate parties and private events.
A Game On location at Fenway Park in Boston has been successful, Mohegan Sun said in its announcement. Game On is owned by the Boston-based Lyons Group, which long has been involved in managing Mohegan Sun nightclubs.
