News & Information

Students carry water bottles on their head to represent the struggles of people in South Sudan.

The 7th graders walked on Franklin Field carrying a gallon (or more) of water to simulate the experiences of millions of women and children who walk everyday to get water for their families. 

Along with their reading of A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, students completed research projects on various water based charities around the world, and as a class, they chose one towards which to actively donate.This year, they are donating to water.org to support their efforts in combating water scarcity, accessibility, and toxicity. They hope to raise at least $4,000 to fund projects that will help change the lives of people who are struggling.

If you would like to donate, you can access our donation page here: https://give.water.org/fundraiser/10234/

The Ensemble, a woodwind quintet, featured five professional musicians. Through the experience, students could see how a chamber ensemble functions seamlessly without a conductor. Students enjoyed various music, including compositions by Gershwin, Vivaldi, and Celia Cruz. It was an outstanding performance enjoyed by all.

Sami and Hannah's presentations continued a longstanding tradition that augments the students’ study of the Holocaust and World War II. Prior to the discussion, 8th graders completed their reading and study of “Night” by Elie Wiesel. Following the presentations, the students had the opportunity to ask questions of Mr. Steigmann and Ms. Holsten.
