I  get to see so many great things going on in our classrooms on a daily basis. Recently, I got to catch Mr. Walsh working with his English class on an activity using Google drawing to help them understand Macbeth. 

 Saturday, April 2, 2016, was the annual Model Legislature session at the State House.  The students wrote bills and then presented them to the other students from around the state who make up the Model House of Representatives and Model Senate and try to get them passed.   

Students in the group photo are from left to right: Paul DiPadua, Mitchell Ambrosino, Marcus Simonini, Noah Jussila, Jonny Glendinning, Nathan Santerre, and Sam Van Gyzen.  All the boys are seniors at EWG.  

Some of them had leadership positions for the state.  Marcus Simonini was the Liberal Co-Whip, Noah Jussila was Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Nathan Santerre was Chair of the Labor Committee.  

Noah Jussila was awarded the J. Joseph Garrahy Book Award at the event.  He was also the author of one of the 8 bills which passed both the House and the Senate this session.  ("An Act to Establish Comprehensive Sexual Education")

The EWG Sr. and Jr. High Drama students will be presenting The Little Mermaid April 7, 8 and 9 at 7:00 PM and Sunday April 10 at 2:00PM in the auditorium. The students have been working so hard to bring this production to life. Please consider coming out to support the students. It is sure to be a great show. 

Let's hope spring actually starts feeling like spring soon. April vacation is the 18th - 22nd. I hope every has a restful and enjoyable week.
