Students shared their talents such as drawing, playing the piano, facilitated activities, distributed prizes to the seniors and engaged in conversations. Students made a farewell holiday thank you card that seniors truly appreciated!

Blue Heron Park

June 5, 2019

On May 24th and 28th, freshman, sophomore, and junior students enrolled in Leadership Circles attended trips to Blue Heron Park in Staten Island hosted by the Urban Park Rangers. Rangers led students through an outdoor classroom program on the topic of ‘ecology and the web of life.’ Students learned about the impact of native and nonnative species on the environment, the effects of human impact, and got to meet live animals. Among them was a snake hilariously named Houdini for his tendency to escape his container! It was a trip students won’t soon forget.
