MS Students Visit West Chester University

As part of an annual tradition, on Wednesday, November 15th, 130 Middle School students in the ESL Program and the Gifted Program traveled to West Chester University for a full day's experience of diverse programming.

Students participated in a workshop from the Career Development Center, visited the Mather Planetarium, met with various professors and university students, and were treated to lunch in the school cafeteria thanks to Dean John Craig.  
The afternoon itinerary included a visit to the Anthropology and Archeology Museum where students examined actual artifacts from immigrants left behind in the Mojave Desert, as well as a visit to the Frederick Douglass Institute where students received a copy of the autobiography of Frederick Douglass.  Frederick Douglass gave his last public speech at West Chester University on February 1, 1895, just nineteen days before his death.
The highlight of the day was when 8th grade students Annie Alonzo-Morales, Pamela Amado and Yanelis Robles Rivera presented at the International Education Week!
