As part of our focus on globalization, every Wednesday morning, our broadcast team runs a segment called World Wednesday. In this segment, a slide, made by a PRHS student, is displayed with photographs and facts about a particular country. PRMS students are to guess which country is represented, and the first student to bring the correct answer to the media center wins.
High school students have made these slides based on their birthplace, and Wednesday morning always brings a rush of middle school students to the media center to give the correct answer.
“I had a lot of fun and I will be participating again,” says Ronny Ponce, a sixth grade student and the third winner that we have had so far.

After being chosen, Mr. Leddy thanked his family, school staff, and students. “It is truly wonderful to be recognized for my years of service here at Porter Ridge Middle School.” I would like to take this opportunity to thank our wonderful staff, terrific students, and loving family, all of whom had an enormous role in helping me achieve this great honor.”Full Story
