Cotton candy, bouncy house, baseball toss, snow cones, henna art, and soccer; these were only some of the fun activities students and parents participated in during the annual Amity Spring Carnival on Saturday, May 20th. Unlike the typical academic school schedule, this time, everyone came to Amity on the weekend to enjoy games, music, and food. While the hype music was on, children, students, and parents went to several stations and enjoyed different games. At each one, they had the chance to collect stickers, which was later rewarded with toys. The cheery vibe was felt despite the cloudy and rainy weather. It was a fun outlet to both celebrate the spring and channel out the stresses of the 2016-17 school year. We cannot wait for next year!
456 feet high, 128 miles per hour. On Thursday, May 18th, our high schoolers were able to go on wild rides like Kingda Ka, the tallest roller coaster in the world, and the fastest one in the North America, during their trip to Six Flags. Students spent time on both adrenaline-rushing roller coasters like the Joker, and simply enjoyable ones like the Columbia Carousel. Altogether, the day brought out the crazy child in everyone!
We proudly congratulate our student Sandra Saygan who WON 1ST PLACE in the high school visual art competition organized by Congressional Institute. Kudos to A. Deveci, M. Akbay, and Z. Gulluce as well for participation! Each spring, the Congressional Institute sponsors a nationwide high school visual art competition to recognize and encourage artistic talent in the nation and in each congressional district. Since the Artistic Discovery competition began in 1982, more than 650,000 high school students have participated. Winners are recognized both in their district and at an annual awards ceremony in Washington, DC. The winning works are displayed for one year at the U.S. Capitol.
