AVID Classes Visit the MET!           

AVID Classes 728 and 628 visited the Metropolitan Museum of Art to engage in lively, inquiry-based conversations that strengthen curriculum connections and encourage important skills like critical thinking and evidence-based reasoning.  These students are certainly college bound!

Science Stem After- School Program 2016

Students have been introduced to the field of Botany, the study of plants. In this After school Program the students are investigating ways in which plants grow and seeds germinate. They have been designing their own greenhouses and self- watering systems. They have also learned how worms are beneficial for the soil, which in turn helps produce healthy plants.

7th Grade ELA Water Challenge

7th grade students at John J. Pershing are reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park and decided to participate in the Iron Giraffe Challenge to raise money to build clean water drinking wells in the areas of the South Sudan that are stricken by a lack of natural resources.  In addition, students read about the water crisis in the United States and decided to donate half of the money raised to the American Red Cross.

Arts Festival

6th Grade ELA Celebration!

 The 6th grade is enjoying reading Thief and they were treated to a theatrical performance at Pershing!

On Saturday, June 18th, twenty students from IS 220 went to the Center for Architecture in Manhattan to present their building designs to a panel of architects and architecture students.  This year’s students created designs for a Parks Department.  The final teams were selected to bring their work to the Center where they took turns presenting their models and their sales talk.  The panelists were impressed by the level of work by our students.  Students were given certificates from the center to acknowledge their commitment to this demanding project.  Thanks to Ms. Valdinoto and Mr. Mosher for taking the time to make this program possible for our students.
