DRAGON PRIDE ROCKS
Hispanic Heritage Festival
The 2023 Hispanic Heritage Month event was organized by our amazing student Dragons and our school counselor, Ms. Thibault. Every morning students showed they are strong Communicators by sharing Hispanic historical facts, current events, "I'm proud to be a Latina/Latino" statements from staff & students, and our morning and afternoon announcements were read in both English & Spanish. Hispanic Heritage Month ended in true Dragon form with an amazing day of celebrations. After a day of performances, our International Dragons shared una cena con arroz con gandules, pollo, y pastellios hecho a mano. Everyone also learned some great moves with salsa lessons from dance instructor Rey Bermudez. ¡Bien hecho Dragones! ¡Bien hecho!
Did you notice these?
These fantásticas obras de arte were showcased during our Hispanic Heritage Festival. Mrs. Groenstein's 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Art classes contributed to our Hispanic Heritage Month by creating art similar to those of Pablo Picasso and Jean Michael Basquiat who were both of Latin decent. Take a look at their work below!
Sophomores Visit University of New Haven
10th grade students enjoyed a fall day on a college campus! Students were in awe of the beautiful campus and were overheard saying “I can really see myself going here”, “I like that it isn’t too far away from home”, and “I’m definitely going to apply here when I’m a senior”! We have a great partnership with UNH and look forward to move visits and acceptances over the coming years!
6th Grade Science - Let's Investigate!
Mrs. Lattanzio's classes investigated the many wonders of light. Students were INQUIRERS by experimenting with light, bubbles, and glow-in-the-dark shaving cream! Ask your 6th grader for the results!

Algebra I students in Ms. Amirshekari's class are learning and showing their knowledge using different types of algebraic equations. Math experts in the making!

MS Sports is all about risk-taking as for most this is the first time they are playing an intermural sport. We are so amazed at their determination to learn, their openness to learn new things and how they are learning to balance sports and academics.
Wish them luck!
