Brickett's Spelling Bee
This year Brickett School students participated in a Spelling Bee that would result in having a student represent the school in the greater Lynn area Spelling Bee. Grades four and five students partook in a competition amongst their classmates. Two winners from each classroom competed on stage to determine who the top speller would be for Brickett School. The students were confident as they approached the microphone and all of them were methodical in their attempts to spell the words given to them. The students went eleven rounds before a single winner remained. Darion Gotimer, in grade five will represent Brickett School in the Spelling Bee on March 14th at Lynn City Hall. Rohnique Silvera in grade four was the runner-up.
Other participants were; Brandon Denton, Michael Beratis, Warren Acceus, Deviny Griffith, Audrey Antonelli, Ury Matul, Nathalie Ortiz, Felicity Blaney Williams.
Month Long Author Study
This is Mrs. Venza’s grade 2 class. The second grade just completed a month long author study of Tomie dePaola. They read several books written and illustrated by Tomie depaola and studied what influences in his life that inspired his writing. Each student wrote a book review of one of his books.
GE's Generosity Pays Off!
For three years, Principal Eileen Cole has has received grant funding from GE Aircraft in Lynn. The funds support the KNOWAtom science program bringing a comprehensive science program to grades 3 through 5, with informational text and hands on experiments using the scientific method. In addition to the curriculum and materials, GE volunteers donate their time to come to the school and assist students with the experiments.
At a recent GE luncheon recognizing their volunteers, two of our students were chosen by Superintendant Catherine Latham: Audrey Antonelli from grade 4 (on the left), and Hayliana Howes from grade 5 (on the right), to be guest speakers at this event. These students did an outstanding job speaking extemperaneously about their love of science. Both girls were poised and confident as they spoke, explaining the example experiments and their journals. A representative from GE joins our students on stage.
