Do You See What I See in the Sea? Do You See What I See in the Sea? The Kindergarten classes experienced live theater, through Merry-Go-Round Playhouse. Do You See What I See in the Sea? was performed. The actors did a fantastic job preparing the students on what they were going to experience. Each actor came into the kindergarten classrooms and encouraged the students to use their imaginations. They had them act out silly scenarios to get their imaginations going. All the students got to put on their own imaginary scuba suits and take a trip with the actors under the sea. They encountered many fun characters throughout the play. The theme of the play was how true friends are a real treasure. The Merry-Go-Round actors made the whole performance enjoyable for our students. The characters were very interactive and engaging. This was an excellent play that ...

If successful, they will become a finalist and then have to read a random monolgue from any of Shakespeare's works.

Traveling to Belize with Mrs. Lisi Traveling to Belize with Mrs. Lisi This past summer Mrs. Lisi had the opportunity to travel to Belize with the NY State Master Teacher Program. The International Club viewed photos of her visit to the Mayan Ruins, rainforests, cave explorations, and interactions with the rescued animals at the Belize Zoo. Through her experience, she was able to learn about the issues affecting Belize and Central America and about the impact people are having on our climate. She enjoyed the local cuisine, including the daily “smoothies,” along with rice, beans, and plantains. Thank you, Mrs. Lisi, for sharing your trip to Belize with the JHS and SHS International Clubs. Mrs. Lisi at the entrance to the Belize zoo.
