EmPOWERment Fridays

EmPOWERment Friday's are electives built into the school day schedule for 7th and 8th graders to address SEL and provide an elective that they are interested in learning more about. The electives run 9 weeks, every Friday in two sessions. Students choose from Guitar Club, Gardening Club, Drama Club, Creative Arts, or Chess Club. Each student is in either female/male empowerment, where they openly discuss their social emotional topics related to them in a smaller group setting. This year we earned a Grant with Rutgers, called MAD Cool Girls, that will be joining our Female Empowerment classes, in February.

Kindergarten Thanksgiving Gathering with Published Author: Vida Fernandez

On Friday, November 17th, Mrs. Villanueva: the Director of ESL and Bilingual Education, invited Vida Fernandez a published author, to visit our school and read to our kindergarten students a special Thanksgiving book she wrote. The students were excited to hear all about Scar, The adorable and clever Rottweiler, who awakens to find chaos in his home on Thanksgiving. To see our students' faces light up with joy and wonder as they listened to Vida's words was breathtaking.
