Accompsett MS Student Has Q&A with Physicist Kip Thorne photo
Accompsett Middle School seventh-grader John Galletta is a future budding physicist. So when he had a chance to initiate an online question and answer session with a Nobel Prize-winning physicist, he jumped at the opportunity. Accompsett Middle School science teacher Louis Mincieli attended a lecture featuring the award-winning physicist Kip Thorne in late March at Stony Brook University. After encouraging his student to watch it, Galletta had some questions about the lecture after watching it online. His teacher encouraged him to reach out to Thorne, who responded to his questions about gravity and quantum effects.

To honor local military heroes this Memorial Day, Accompsett Middle School organized its second annual Flags for Freedom program. Organized by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association and the National Junior Honor Society, participants could purchase a flag for $25 in honor or memory of loved ones who have or are serving in the military. 

On May 17, the PTA and members of the National Junior Honor Society worked on the grounds in front of the school, cleaning up the flower beds and setting up the flags for display. Profits from the sale of the flags will be donated to America’s VetDogs, a local nonprofit that helps veterans with service dogs, and Boots on the Ground, a local veterans activity center.
