City Wide Speech Contest

1

LYNN — Talking out of turn in class is frowned upon, but speaking well in school can be rewarded, particularly if it’s a speech contest.       
Three Lynn English High School students, Osayaba Ayinla, Jacob DeFillipo and Zurich Deleon made it through the first level of a citywide speech contest sponsored by the Lions Clubs of Lynn.   During the second level of competition, Ayinla, a junior, won the right to represent Lynn in the next phase of competition, which includes facing off against students from surrounding communities.  Read more...

LYNN — They’ll be making room for another Woumn on the 1,000-point scorer banner that hangs in the English High gymnasium.  Senior guard Diondra Woumn rang up her 1,000th career point Saturday to help the English girls basketball team to a 54-39 win over Billerica in a Division 1 North quarterfinal game. She joins older brother Ryan, who accomplished the feat in 2010, as the latest member of the club. Teammate Catherine Stinson hit the milestone earlier this season.  Read more...

Evan Gikas featured as Channel 5's A+ Student

LYNN, Mass. —Morning announcements at Lynn English High School are kind of a big deal.   In the studio, four students are in place to anchor the 8:10 a.m. broadcast, and Evan Gikas is in the control room doing a routine microphone check.   "We do a morning show about activities happening around the school," said Gikas. "I want to pursue broadcasting as a career. I want to do it."  Gikas is a fixture in the school's television studio. Teacher Kenneth Vorspan said he wouldn't have it any other way.   Read more...

Fighting Chance For Rio!

1By Kevin Paul Dupont | Globe Staff | Photo:  Essdras M. Suarez | February 16

She has a fighting chance to make it to Rio
Rashida Ellis has her eyes fixed on the Olympic flame, but not the one currently aglow in Sochi. Ellis, 18, a senior at Lynn English High School, is part of a family boxing franchise that has sent her two brothers on to the professional ranks and her mother into a state of guarded, growing optimism.
“I was skeptical, scared at first,’’ said Beverly Ellis, recalling when her daughter first climbed into the ring, gloved hands raised in sweet science in 2006. “I didn’t want her beautiful face swollen. But she’s a tough girl.’’
Tough and determined and devoted. Ellis, who works out six nights a week, 3-4 hours each evening at the Somerville Boxing Club under the tutelage of trainer Alex Rivera, is aiming to be one of the three USA women who fight at the Rio de Janeiro Olympics in 2016. She’s convinced she’ll make it, as is Rivera, although the favorite at the moment is Queen Underwood, who just last month edged Ellis in a semifinal bout at the national championships outside Spokane, Wash.   Continue reading Boston Sunday Globe story

Students Campaign For Healthy Foods

1Photo by Angela Owens | Itemlive Story By Chris Stevens / The Daily Item

LYNN — Snacks from a corner convenience store might not be your idea of healthy eating but a group of teens and the Lynn Food and Fitness Alliance are setting out to change that with a healthy market campaign. “We wanted to target the youth and the corner market, and we thought the way to do it was to engage the youth in the corner store project,” said Amanda Rzepkowski, an AmeriCorps volunteer who is coordinating the program.  Rzepkowski recruited teens from Lynn English High School for the Lynn Youth Health Alliance and asked them what places they frequent after school.  Jayden Pena, 18, admitted he was skeptical at first.  “You don’t go to a convenience store for healthy food,” he said. “You’re in and out and just grab what’s handy.”  The goal is to get a store owner to agree to not only offer healthy items but also display them in a prime location. The payback for their efforts is a poster telling the world they are a healthy options market and free marketing from the kids.  Pena said they targeted the Richdales Store at 458 Chatham St. because it’s where kids from the high school go.  Read more...

LEHS Celebrates Adams Scholars

1

Lynn English High School is proud to announce that 113 students in the Class of 2014 received the John & Abigail Adams Scholarship from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. This accomplishment bests last year’s record of 105 students. The John and Abigail Adams Scholarship provides a tuition waiver for eight semesters of undergraduate education at a Massachusetts state college or university. Massachusetts public high school students are eligible for the scholarship when they score at the Advanced and Proficient levels on grade 10 MCAS tests in English Language Arts (ELA) and Mathematics. (A student must earn a score of Advanced on the ELA or Mathematics test and a score of Proficient or higher on the second test.); AND have a combined score that places them in the top 25% of the graduating class in their district. Eligibility for the scholarship is based on a student's first attempt at taking the grade 10 tests in ELA and Mathematics. Principal Thomas Strangie congratulates these students and the teachers who helped them achieve this success!
