Ms. Campisano and Student

Ms. Campisano’s eighth grade history class recently delved into the importance of community in social activism and the instrumental role of food in the Civil Rights Movement. While enjoying homemade cornbread and fritters, the students talked about how food brought people together to plan, build strength, and organize. The students also analyzed the effectiveness of the 1963 Children’s March and discussed Paula Young Shelton’s book Child of the Civil Rights Movement.

During Advisory, in celebration of Earth Month, Intermediate Schoolers participated in activities focused around loving nature and living responsibly. Groups of seventh and eighth graders went on hikes, used items from nature to create art, and discussed how best to take care of the Earth. Even the rain didn’t dampen their spirits!
