New Arts and Humanities Garden Greets Students
As students began the new school year, they were greeted by a beautiful addition to Lawrence High School. The new Arts and Humanities Garden, funded by the Lawrence Township Education Foundation, was a long-term project involving a community of LHS art program students and teachers who brought the space to life with gorgeous mosaics. Art teacher Khalilah Sabree, the leader of art and design for the project, described how the garden "created an organic space in nature" where independent creativeness can thrive. Pictures of the project's evolution can be viewed on Ms. Sabree's webpage.
9/11 – We Remember
Lawrence High School students and staff remembered by writing comments on multi-colored cards and attaching them to grapevine wreaths located in the cafeteria. Solicited comments included relating thoughts/memories about 9/11, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, global concerns, and animal cruelty. Some of the comments:
- “My friend's father was killed in 9/11 attack. He is younger than me and he remembers what happened. I speak in honor of him.”
- “I remember getting picked up by my mom at daycare.”
- “Help my brother get home safely.”
Mrs. Clancy's first-grade class at Eldridge Park Elementary School paid tribute with a "Pinwheels for Peace" theme and outlined a large peace sign with pinwheels on the school's front lawn. They first discussed world peace and how students can be peacemakers. The pinwheels peace sign is visible to the community and all Eldridge Park students as a reminder to those who sacrificed their lives on 9/11 and to be peacemakers every day.
