  • Class 720 Performs Scenes from the To Kill A Mockingbird Screenplay Class 720 Performs Scenes from the To Kill A Mockingbird Screenplay Class 720 did not want to just read the To Kill A Mockingbird screenplay by Harper Foote, they wanted to bring it to life and perform it! With the guidance of their ELA teacher, Ms. Cara Refano, they practiced for days and memorized the lines of their famous characters including, Atticus, Jem and Scout. They performed scenes that they believed were significant or memorable. Their first performance was for Ms. Greenberg in the library. They did an encore for Ms. Witek and Dr. Melucci the next week.

  • 7th Graders Get a Surprise from Linda Sue Park! 7th Graders Get a Surprise from Linda Sue Park! With the encouragement of their ELA teachers Ms. Jennifer Mariano and Ms. Christina Regalbuto, the students of classes 715, 723, 731, 71B, and 71D decided to write letters to author Linda Sue Park after reading her NY Times bestselling novel, A Long Walk to Water. The students truly enjoyed reading the novel and could not wait to write to her in hopes they would get a response. To their surprise, they did! In addition to receiving a personalized letter from the author, they also received autographed labels for each of their novels. These will serve as a reminder of yet another meaningful learning experience at Pershing.
