Mamaroneck High School Students Make their Mark on New Hampshire Primary, Campaigning and Podcasting
For the third consecutive presidential election cycle, Mamaroneck High School's AP U.S. Government & Politics students travelled to the New Hampshire Primary to campaign for the candidates -- canvassing door-to-door, phone banking and attending political events. This year, the group of 126 AP U.S. students included 14 students who also took journalism and went along as reporters producing daily professional-quality podcasts (with equipment provided through a grant from the Mamaroneck Schools Foundation) and print articles for Medium. Many thanks to community member Alina Tugend, contributing writer for the New York Times and other national publications, for coming along on the trip and coaching our students.
"Singin' in the Rain!" Coming Soon to MHS
Singin' In The Rain runs Feb. 27-29 in Mamaroneck High School's McLain Auditorium. Showtimes include a 6 pm performance on 2/27 and 7 pm on 2/28 and 2/29. If you need any inspiration to go, watch below a short preview by cast members at a recent Board of Education meeting.
Robotics Team Advances to First Lego League Regionals and Wins Inspiration Award
Earlier this month, four Hommocks Middle School students won the Inspiration Award at the regional championship of the FIRST LEGO League robotics competition for "applying the knowledge, values and skills they learned to improve themselves and their world." Team Photon Phoenix consists of 7th graders Paul Brandman, Liam DeLaMora, James Kauffman, and 6th grader Riley O’Neill. At the January qualifier competition, they won Best Project for their innovative solution addressing flooding at Harbor Island Park and 2nd place overall.

Upcoming U.S. Census Update: Your Response Matters
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Robert Shaps sent a letter to the community about the importance of responding to the U.S. Census Update. He said, among other things, the data will be used to determine our community's portion of school aid funds for the next decade.
"New York had about a 76% response rate to the 2010 census, and the state has been receiving about $73 billion annually in federal education aid, according to New York State United Teachers. If the response rate had been 95%, the annual federal allocation would have been about $92 billion." - Journal News, Feb. 3, 2020
5th Graders Learn about Coding through 'Singing in Robotic Unison' Module
Fifth graders are learning about coding through the "Singing in Robotic Unison" module, considering questions such as: How do we work as a team to take on coding challenges? How are loops, events, and conditionals useful in programming? How can we tell stories through robotics?
