In honor of ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) Awareness Month, the Marion Street Elementary School Student Council held a fundraiser to support the ALS Ride For Life Foundation and its search for a cure. With the help of student council advisers Kristen Keane and Kelsey Occhino, the members discussed the disease ALS at their meetings and facilitated an ice bucket fundraiser to get teachers and students involved. They created posters to promote ALS awareness and the fundraiser around the school.

Each class at Marion Street Elementary School donated money and nominated teachers for the ice bucket challenge. Ice bucket participants included student council advisers Mrs. Keane and Mrs. Occhino, along with teachers Kara Boulay, Amy Brennan, Kelly Donovan, Tracey Reisert and Principal Theresa Macchia. Each class watched a video of the teacher’s ice bucket challenge and on May 20, all students and staff wore red to spread ALS awareness and honor Chris Pendergast. Mr. Pendergast was the founder of ALS Ride for Life, a hardworking advocate for ALS awareness, and an annual visitor at the school, who passed away last year from the disease.

Together, the school community raised $2,151 for the ALS Ride For Life Foundation. Students in Anthony Simone’s fourth grade class raised the most money during the fundraiser and won the chance to slime their principal Mrs. Macchia outside the school. The fundraiser was a great way to raise awareness, honor Mr. Pendergast’s memory and support an important cause.

In honor of National Poetry Month, Marion Street Elementary School students recently helped put together their second exhibit “Great American Poets: Words That Inspire” in the school’s “museum.”

Coordinated by library media specialist Marie Sarro-Pizarro, the museum exhibit is featured outside of the school library. One wall showcases poems from each library class, representing the 12 different forms of poetry such as acrostic, haiku, shape, single word, sensory and free verse poems. The other wall features fifth grade research on six great American poets: Emily Dickinson, Robert Frost, Langston Hughes, Shel Silverstein, Jack Prelutsky and Amanda Gorman. The fifth graders worked together with their classmates to create a biography poster of their individual poet of study for the exhibit, while practicing their notetaking skills and summarizing key details.

All Marion Street students in grades 1-5 visited the completed museum during the school day. With clipboards in hand, the classes explored the exhibit and answered questions about the poems and research on display. The museum exhibit was a creative way to further develop students’ knowledge of poetry.
