In observance of Black History Month, our 6th and 8th grade students recognized contributions made by African Americans to American life and society in English Language Arts class. Students researched the lives of African Americans who have made special contributions to American Life and were asked to present their research projects to their peers. The middle school students learned so much from each other and enhanced their oral presentation skills.
Some wire, unread books, an old toaster, extra goggles, and construction paper... This is all the art students need to make a creative masterpiece! Thank to the art department, every corner or our school is colorful. From the kindergarten finger print paintings, to the middle school modern art projects, to the high school mask sculptures, almost all the students contributed to decorating the halls of our school. They have transformed many ordinary objects to works of art. All their efforts are really worth admiring!
The end of the second quarter brought excitement and joy to Amity. Having an award assembly following the end of every quarter is one of Brooklyn Amity School’s special traditions. Everyone is able to see and celebrate what they achieved. On Monday, February 6th, teachers presented their awards in several categories - high honor roll, honor roll, excellence in specific awards, citizenship award, and perfect attendance. As always, this quarter’s awards were given to students based on their individuality, effort, and performance. Many students were recognized, and received awards in several categories. Congratulations to all students for ending another quarter with success and good memories, and good luck on the other half of the school year!
