At a moment’s notice, she may be called upon to juggle classes around or troubleshoot a computer cart crisis. If you haven’t shown your appreciation, you might want to say thanks for a job well done.

Thanks to Green Rays for New Picnic Tables

osheaA huge thank you to Maureen O’Shea and Sean Ashworth for the new benches in the courtyard.  They both were the important people responsible for not only the trees, but also the concrete slab, and now the benches.  It can be used as an outdoor classroom and a nice place for students to sit in the mornings.  Maureen’s Green Ray students last year and the year before did a lot of fund raising for this whole project.  Mr. Ashworth helped out as well with funding.  This is such a nice contribution to the school. Mrs. Jinks table

Do the Write Thing Challenge Winners

Do the Write Thing is a yearly writing challenge for middle school students that asks them to think about how violence impacts their lives or their friend’s lives. The challenge helps them understand that violence isn’t needed in life, and it also teaches them that when they see violence happening around them, they have to take action and help. Schools all around the nation take part in the challenge, and two students with top entries from each county are invited to Washington, D.C. as guests of the Kuwaiti government. Palm Springs Middle School top ten students will be invited to a luncheon at the Kravis center in May, and they are: from Ms. Costello’s class Shelby A., Shiyanna M., Shayla Z.; from Mr. Gosa’s class Paola C., and Harlin O.; from Mr. Coppola’s class Kimberly C.; from Mr. Gage’s class Cassandra P.; from Ms. Jarzabkowski’s class Maria M. and Makayla T.; and from Ms. Sterling’s class Jhonny M.
