American Heart Association Challenge
Thursday, March 19, 2020—We asked our entire teaching staff to change the way they handle student engagement and curriculum in the course of 24 hours—and it's remarkable to see how they have risen to the challenge. Our PE Teacher has already created a microsite for her classroom. The site is filled with activities and resources for her students. Not only that, but Ms. Digristina found a way to seamlessly continue the American Heart Association's challenge that students began a few weeks ago. Site Link So considering that it is still Thursday, here's a little #tbt of our youngest scholars rising to occasion during our American Heart Association Kick-Off Assembly that took place Friday, March 6, 2020.

Bosnian Flag Raising in Utica
Sunday, March 1, 2020—Our students joined local Bosnians in the community as they raised the Bosnian flag at Utica City Hall in celebration of Bosnian Independence Day. The Mayor of Utica also signed a proclamation to formally recognize March 1 as Bosnian Independence Day in the City of Utica, NY, annually. Every year we will be reminded of how lucky our students are to live in a city that continues to be built by immigrants and refugees who bring with them hope for a better life while continuing to honor their traditions and vibrant culture.
