8th Graders Go to Washington, DC
Recently, 8th grade students at PRMS took a class trip to our capitol, Washington DC. It was a three day, two night trip where they were able to experience our nation’s history in a very real way. National monuments, museums and other historical attractions gave students a glimpse of how our nation has transformed from a band of thirteen colonies to one of the most powerful nations in the world.
Although the strength of the United States is undeniable, it has not been an easy path. The sacrifices of the men and women of this country are noted in many of the museums and monuments students visited. One of the first memorials visited was the Iwo Jima Marine Corps War Memorial. Stationed outside the walls of Arlington National Cemetery, this memorial gave everyone time to reflect on the sacrifices made and lives lost to help protect and ensure our freedom.Full Story
International Festival - Beyond Borders
The 2nd annual International Global Festival took place on Friday, March 28th at Porter Ridge Middle School. This is a great event where students and staff come together to learn and show off their knowledge about diverse cultures around the world. Booths about different countries and cultures were set up around the school, doors were lavishly decorated down each hallway, and food from around the world was served from the cafeteria tables.
One homeroom from each grade level won the door decorating contest. Mrs. Connell’s 6th grade homeroom decorated a beautiful Bangladesh door; Ms. Bryant’s 7th grade homeroom put together a fun door about Madagascar, and Mrs. Rose’s eighth grade homeroom had a fantastic French door.
