Students in Mrs. Kolbasowski's class completed an On-Air Commercial Analysis project, where students had to create various graphs that depicted the types of commercials that are broadcasted during television programs. The project culminated with students presenting their graphs and information to their class.
AVID and the Philadelphia Zoo
Our AVID students have the distinguished opportunity to participate in a contest sponsored by the Philadelphia Zoo called UNLESS. Directly in line with common core standards, our AVID students will think critically about a real-world issue that is impacting wildlife around the globe. Along with the Philadelphia Zoo our students are committed to addressing the impact of palm oil on tigers and other endangered wildlife. Palm oil is the world’s most widely produced vegetable oil. It can be found in almost 50% of the packaged foods we eat and in many shampoos, cosmetics, lotions and cleaning products. In the last decade, close to 80% of deforestation in Sumatra was driven by the expansion of non-sustainable palm oil plantations, costing tigers, orangutans, rhinos and other endangered wildlife valuable habitat they need to survive. We hope this inspirational work will be a great start to building awareness around the palm oil issue. This activity aims to harness the consumer power of children and have them influence companies to act. Today’s youth have unparalleled ability to inspire and effect positive change.
Congratulations to the Pemberton Middle School Boys Basketball team for another successful season! They won their division and finished with a record of 7-4. They lost in the first round of the playoffs to Delran in a double overtime thriller.
Lady Hornets Basketball
Congratulations to the Lady Hornets Middle School basketball team on their incredible season during the 2013-2014 campaign. The Lady Hornets achieved a record high in victories, with five wins, this past season. This record high included a four game winning streak that assisted in them making the playoffs. The Lady Hornets played excellent team defense. They went six quarters throughout the season leaving opposing teams scoreless. It was one of the best seasons in the last ten to fifteen years. Congrats to this special team that achieved as much as they did in a season where snow and adversity could have been a hindrance.
