Middle School Social Studies Challenge

The 6th graders came up and joined the 7th & 8th grade for the annual Middle School Social Studies Challenge. 6 students represented each grade in the 4 rounds of various social studies questions. Questions geared toward their particular curricula, famous 2nds in history, currents events & world leaders all hi-lighted the vast array of knowledge the young people needed as they answered a lot more questions then they got wrong. The 250+ students in the audience had their own competition with cheering, clapping & signs they made in support of their class. They also were interactive with answering questions & had fun at the end of the competition answering famous historical & geographical nicknames. At the end of the hour long competition, the 7th graders came out on top with a close win over the 8th & 6th grade. Ms. Kenny, 7th grade SS teacher, will have possession of the "Golden Political Sphere", which is the winner's trophy, until next years competition. A big thanks to Mr. Gibbons and the Social Studies staff that made this another unique, fun, & educational day!!

Washington DC Trip

Washington DC Trip
On May 6th and 7th, the eighth grade students hit the road for their annual trip to Washington DC! This interdisciplinary trip gave students the opportunity to bridge topics being taught in their courses with visits to the National Holocaust Museum, the Newseum, and Arlington National Cemetery. A new and exciting addition for our trip this year was a guided tour of the Pentagon.

Café 217

Students working with Ms. Crowley, Ms. Ostrander and Ms. Mallor at ERHS are proud to announce the grand opening of "Café 217", which was a huge success! Staff members are invited to stop by our classroom, on select days and times, to place an order of hot or iced coffee or tea. The orders are taken, prepared, and served by our hard working students. Thank you to the East Rockaway Ed Foundation for providing the grant to make this possible!
