Mrs. Ruggiero, Mrs. Banach and I had a wonderful time experiencing Washington DC with the 8th grade students. We were so lucky to get the unique opportunity to tour the inside of the White House! We also saw all the impressive monuments, Arlington National Cemetery, the Capital Building, Ford’s Theater, Museum of African American History and Culture, Air and Space Museum, Museum of Natural History, and attended services at the National Cathedral. We were nonstop from 4am Friday until 1am Monday!
Grade 5 and 7 enjoyed Duck Tours courtesy of essay contest winners Kevin Gailius and Elise Ferguson. Both groups had a wonderful time learning about many historic sites in Boston.
On Tuesday evening the following students were inducted into the National Junior Honor Society. We are very proud of these fine young people for their accomplishment.
Grade 8 ~ Jaed Jean-Michel
Grade 7 ~ Morgan Craft, Elise Ferguson, Cidne Jackson, Nakailah Jean-Guillaume, Abigail Raymond, Akilah Villers-Jean
Grade 6 ~ Joseph Salmon
The 5th Grade celebrated their studies of the US History with their annual States Fair. The students researched and presented interesting facts about their states. I was very impressed with what they knew and I learned a lot too!
The GALA is this Saturday. The PTO Committee has been working so hard to make this a fun evening for our community. It is the biggest PTO fundraiser of the year and all proceeds go to our students for their education and enrichment. There are over 83 auction items available. Tickets can be purchased in advance for $25 or at the door for $30. I am looking forward to seeing many of you there!
