7th Grade Trip to Museum of Natural History

The 7th Grade went to the American Museum of Natural History yesterday.  It was a great day.  We were able to visit all the “highlights” of the Museum, starting with the African Peoples/Mammals. As a grade we went to the Planetarium to see the short film called, “Dark Universe”.  This film depicts the vital discoveries that have given us a better wisdom of the history and structure of the universe and our place in it.  After the film we were able to visit the “Family Hall of Ocean Life” on our way to lunch.  As a grade we stopped in the Souvenir shop.  I think the most anticipated part of our trip was the Suarischian Dinosaurs.  On our way out we briefly went through the Hall of the Asian Peoples.  

Overall, it was a wonderful trip where students were able to understand and be exposed to all diversity through cultural immersion.

Alumni Panel - 3/26/18

Thank you Miss Rudolph for organizing this event for our students!

On Monday, March 26, Palisades Park Jr./Sr. High School had the pleasure of hosting its second alumni panel. Former students, Maximo and Bryan, shared their experiences of coming to the United States from Dominican Republic and Guatemala, learning English, and life after high school. It’s always so rewarding to see students giving back to their community!

National Walkout to End School Violence - 3/14/18

In an exercise of their 1st Amendment rights to free assembly, PPHS students participated in the National Walkout to End School Violence today, March 14th. Preceded by today's walkout, students participated in a School Safety Student Symposium on Monday, March 12th and had an opportunity to question school officials and voice their concerns. Out of that meeting, emerged student leaders from various backgrounds and grade-levels who helped to organize today's demonstration. Their initiative and efforts are what made today a success and a worthwhile and memorable first step toward permanent change. THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED!
