School 16 February Calendar

Let's Fill the Bus!
The Homeless Bus is an organization that seeks donations of various items to deliver to less fortunate areas in New York.  With February being the month of compassion at School 16, staff and students helped support this worthy cause by donating water, snacks, applesauce, and granola bars.  Some of the girls in Brownies assisted in loading the bus and gathering additional donations.  We are so proud of how everyone worked together to make a difference in the world.  A special thank you to Mrs. Trout for organizing this! 

Happy Valentine’s Day!
School 16 held its first annual Valentine’s Day Dance on February 14th sponsored by Project Unify.  The boys and girls enjoyed dancing along to a variety of Just Dance videos that were projected on the big screen in the gym, which was beautifully decorated with balloon bouquets, glittered hearts, and large posters.  Each student received a small goody bag and a treat!  The fun festivities would not have been possible without the help of many volunteers, especially Mrs. Trout, Mr. Horton, Mrs. McCarthy, Ms. Fasouletos, Ms. Pagano, and Ms. Guidetti.

The Third Grade students in Mr. Horton's class as well as Mrs. Testa's class joined together to build a bridge that would hold two toy cars.  The students were in groups of 3-4.  They were all given a bag of 44 popsicle sticks, tape, and construction paper.  They used their textbooks as the outside structure of the bridge.  Together they had to make the bridge (construction paper) strong enough to drive 2 toy cars over it.  They all were so creative and had a lot of fun becoming engineers.

The Annual HSA Coat Drive was a success! Over 100 items, including 40+coats were collected. School 16's very own Girl Scout Brownies, Juliette Junior and parents of Troop 96393 helped with getting the donation ready for delivery to St. Peter's Haven in Clifton. Thanks to everyone for your kindness this year!
