High School East students enrolled in the leadership class visited with classes at Mills Pond Elementary School on April 15 as part of a class project. The high school students worked on designing a program to teach to the elementary classes. The leadership students visited a kindergarten, second grade and two fifth-grade classes, where they worked on activities related to the topic of how to be a leader. The high school students read stories and made crafts during the visit. The goal of their project was to teach the younger students leadership qualities while also having fun.
High School East and High School West spent April 11 educating its sophomore classes on events of the Holocaust and Rwandan genocide. As part of its social studies curriculum, the schools have held a Holocaust Remembrance and Genocide Awareness Day for the past 18 years.
This year marks the 25th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide. During the full-day event, the 10th graders listened to a lecture by Rwandan genocide survivor and former Parliament speaker Joseph Sebarenzi. A second guest lecture included a testimony from Holocaust survivor Werner Reich. The lectures help students connect on a more personal level and understand the importance of empathy and forgiveness despite these tragedies.
“Werner Reich and Joseph Sebarenzi’s presentations were both very inspirational and gave you a feeling to be a better person and try to keep peace for the future,” said Ashley Lockwood, High School West student. “Also, to try and forgive others to stay healthy and get rid of anger and bitterness.”
During breakout sessions, students worked in smaller groups for different activities. They spent two periods learning the background of what happened in Cambodia and Rwanda through a presentation and film clips and created an awareness poster.
To give its students a sampling of the many options available for their post-secondary education, High School East held a daytime mini college fair on March 13. More than 50 colleges and universities both locally and throughout the U.S. had representatives available to field questions from the high schoolers. Students asked about academic programs, campus life, admissions, financial aid and tuition information during their time with the college representatives.
