Reagan Graduating Seniors Visit Vienna Elementary

This comes to us from Gina Cusato-O’Neal, the Media & Technology Facilitator at Vienna Elementary School:

On Thursday, the "senior giants" from Reagan High School who attended Vienna in their elementary years walked through the hallways at Vienna waving at students.  

Five Vienna teachers had a senior – Hannah Boone, Will Hamilton, Lauren Hale, Kate Safrit, Jake Reece – participating in the walk. 

The "Senior Walk" is a tradition at Vienna and serves as "practice" for their real graduation at Lawrence Joel Veterans Memorial Coliseum on June 9 at 6 p.m.

World-Renowned Cyclist Visits Speas

On Friday, world-renowned cyclist Kristin Armstrong visited students at Speas Global Elementary School. Here is what Katryna Jacober, the school’s Instructional Facilitator, had to say:  

At Speas Global, Ms. Armstrong spoke to our third- through fifth-graders about the importance of having good character. In the Beijing 2008, London 2012, and Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games, Kristin won Gold Medals in the Time Trials, U.S. women's cycling.

Each Olympic Games taught her something new:

“You have to have a team behind you.”

“We all have difficulties...it’s how we respond to them…It goes back to your character.” 

“Go after whatever you want to go after in life.”

“If people ask you why, say ‘Because I can.’”

“When life knocks you down, remember you have a new day to start again. Get back up. Believe in yourself.”

“Be a friend and believe in your friends.”

“Give it back!”

Those are just some of the quotes I tweeted during her presentation.

Kristin Armstrong is the most decorated U.S. women's cyclist of all time and the best time-trialist in sports history.

Off to the Carver Prom

With the support of people in the community, Denise Cloud and Amanda Simmons sponsored a number of Carver High School students for the Carver Prom on May 5.

The sponsorship included tickets to the prom, a gown or tuxedo, shoes, a haircut or hair styling and make-up, dinner at Arigato's restaurant, a limousine ride to the prom, and photographs.

Teachers Regeania Huntley and Transition Coordinator Aretha Jones-Moultrie helped coordinate everything.

“I would like to express that support for our students extends beyond the classroom, and it takes a village to foster their strengths and needs,” Jones Moultrie said.

“It was an overwhelming experience to see the positive impact from the community.”
