  • The Pulsera Project

    The International Club at Somers Middle School held the Pulsera Project sales for the month of April. The Pulsera Project is a nonprofit organization that educates, empowers, and connects Central American artists with students in the U.S. schools through the sale of colorful handwoven pulseras (bracelets) and bolsitas (purses). The funds raised go towards education, employment, healthcare and housing in the communities of Guatemala and Nicaragua. We are happy to announce that we surpassed our goal and raised a total of $1310! Way to go SMS!

  • A Message of Respect

    The students in the No Place For Hate (NPFH) club at Somers Middle School created a video for their final project of the 2020-2021 school year. The video promotes the club’s mission of making the middle school a NPFH School, free of prejudice and discrimination. The focus is on the concept of microaggressions, which the students learned about at a virtual leadership conference this year. The message is to avoid making assumptions about others and to respect and celebrate each other’s differences and unique qualities. Click this link to watch the video.

  • Mammal Madness in Middle School

    The debate was heated - would it be the thorny devil versus the dugón or the blue-capped ifrit versus the anchovy? This isn’t a science fiction book that middle school science students were analyzing; rather it was a March Madness-style bracket featuring mammals instead of NCAA basketball teams. “I really liked this project because it was a mix of work and fun,” says Santiago Robles, the ultimate winner of the Mammal Madness competition at Somers Middle School. The fun lesson was created by professors at Arizona State University, who run the competition annually. They select 64 animals to compete in virtual combat and keep a running commentary on a website and social media channels. The students in Monica Manko and Tim Wilbert’s classes researched the animals together, then submitted their individual picks by filling out the competition bracket.
