The students Mazen Yusuf, Milo Miller, Wyatt Bracy, Ariana Schwartz, Julia Morra, Brielle Schindler and Alexandra Tonin, discussed environmental concerns in their community, as well as how to solve local and global environmental issues and the possibilities for school involvement. The class combined the unit study of environmental challenges with learning and singing the lyrics of the song Color Esperanza, a positive and uplifting song about hope for a better world.
Middle School students created icons, buttons, and animations for mobile apps using Figma interface design software. Featured designers: Aaliyah Boodhoo, Josh Tewinkle, and Kennedy James.

An island made of rubbish is no island at all; so we must keep the island clean for the environment to stand tall. With respect and perseverance, life will go on. And without our major interference, the island will stand strong. Plastic and trash have no home in our oceans, so cleaning up should be our primary motion. With pollution causing damage to our reefs, garbage is stealing habitats like a thief. Fish and coral are prey to a hunter, and soon enough, there will be nothing left to plunder. If we continue on this track, there is no going back. And with our disarray, the animals may not see another day. For we may continue to rhyme; Polluters continue to commit crimes. And as the animals yearn, we continue to learn. The water needs our preservation, but without representation, they go unnoticed within our nation. The time has come to make a change, but without your help, life will remain the same.
The Rain By Jaden Gonzalez What do you feel like when you stand in the rain Do you feel cold, wet, irritated I tend to enjoy standing in the rain Jumping and turning as you feel the raindrops hit your skin and run through your hair Having a cold breeze hit your face as you smell the scent of a passing wind It's a very calming experience. Carefully placing your feet so you don't fall And moving as if the rain directs your actions It's a very freeing experience Even the sound of rain itself hold its own calming quality Hearing all the raindrops hit against a surface Grasping every droplet as it descends It may chill you out or even put you to sleep And when the rain ends And the droplets stop falling You can see all that's left aected You see the puddles of water that the ground held onto The damp leaves and blades of grass The various clear pools that collect in almost everything You walk around and still feel he water vapor in the air, on your skin, on your face Whether you dance in the rain and avoid it with your entire being Your still aected by it, you still feel aected by it You still walk around and see its gift upon your surroundings Giving life to your surroundings Making things grow and ourish Giving seeds the water they need to sprout from the ground In a sort of freeing experience The rain does that
