Remembering the Message from Martin Luther King Jr.

From the primary school to the high school, students and teachers commemorated the life of Martin Luther King Jr. Teachers used art and writing to reinforce the positive messages of Dr. King’s words.

High school students in Melanie Mooney’s Studio Art classes were each given a thumbnail image that they were asked to replicate proportionally in charcoal, on a 6-inch-square piece of paper. It was difficult for students to decipher what the thumbnail image was, as each one was a portion of a larger image. 

Once the students had all recreated the images, they assembled them in order on the wall based on codes on the back of each thumbnail. They watched as squares put together became hands, a nose, a mustache and eventually, a portrait of Martin Luther King Jr. 

“It was exciting to see the students understand how their mini individualized artwork when put together and assembled created a masterpiece,” Ms. Mooney said. She explained that Dr. King said, “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?” and that the “others” in this statement helped her students understand that artwork goes much further than themselves. “Collaboration and teamwork can create a much bigger picture,” she said.

At Ann MacArthur Primary School, second graders in Tanya Becker’s class read the book “Martin’s Big Words” and then wrote down their own big words. The book explains that big words are important words such as sharing, caring and love. The children wrote their own names inside of hearts and surrounded those hearts with their own big words, including fair, friendly, kind and beautiful. Ms. Becker explained that the project supports the Bucket Filler program, which emphasizes traits such as empathy, understanding and caring.

Four Falcon wrestlers made their mark at one of the most prestigious wrestling tournaments in the country from Jan. 10-11. The Eastern States Classic brought 500 wrestlers from 174 teams and six states to Loch Sheldrake, New York. 

Senior Gage DeNatale, 132 lbs., took the fourth-place spot in his weight class after seven matches. He started the match seeded eighth out of 47 wrestlers. On his path to the podium, Gage defeated several former state place winners and state champions, putting himself in position to be the top-seeded wrestler when the 2020 state championships take place in Albany this February.

Juniors Jack Croke and Roarke Creedon, along with senior Vincent Marchand, all earned victories in the tournament. 

Congratulations to Gage and all of the incredible Falcon wrestlers.
