  • 7th Graders Practice Teamwork and Perseverance By Having Fun! 7th Graders Practice Teamwork and Perseverance By Having Fun! The 7th Graders embarked on their very first "grade trip" to Aviators Indoor Sports Complex.  These 7th graders had a packed day of activities.    Many students climbed the rock wall which required both physical and mental strength.  At first students stared at these walls of different shaped rocks, standing 35 feet high and refused to try.  However, after insisting that Dr. Melucci go first, (which she happily did), they overcame their initial fears and used their perseverance to climb as high as they could.  With their harnesses on, students climbed straight and even the more challenging inclined walls and with teamwork and coaching from classmates and teachers, some students even climbed ...

  • "Buddy Read" On February 12th, 2015, middle school IS220 and elementary school PS160 initiated an exciting new program called “Buddy Read”. Buddy Read is a partnership where specially selected 7th graders act as “mini teachers” to kindergarten students. Students were mentored by Special Education teacher Dane Johnsen and ELA teacher Christina Regalbuto. Each Pershing student brought a copy of Natasha Wing’s “The Night Before the 100th Day of School”, a pleasurable story about how a class full of students prepare for this momentous day. The Pershing students did an admirable job at demonstrating their passion and love for teaching. Overall, the day was an inspiring success and both schools look forward to this monthly event.
