In Disney’s My Son Pinocchio, Jr. the classic tale of toymaker Geppetto’s little wooden puppet is given new life. This new musical, which retells the classic Disney story from Geppetto’s perspective, features the beloved classic songs “When You Wish Upon a Star” and “I’ve Got No Strings,” alongside a host of new songs by master melodist Stephen Schwartz, tackling timely issues about what it means to be “the perfect child”- and what it means to be “a real father.”
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
Congratulation 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.
The Outsiders by: S.E. Hinton
Students in Mr. McGovern’s and Ms. Elmo’s 7th grade language arts class read the novel The Outsiders By: S.E Hinton. As a culminating activity students worked in groups to depict one of the characters in The Outsiders. Students recorded evidence from the text that revealed their character’s: dialogue, thoughts and feelings, actions, physical description and conflicts. Students crafted an example of figurative language that described their character. Finally, students utilized arts and crafts materials like paints, markers, construction paper, scissors, glue as well as remnants of clothing to create a life-sized representation of their character.
