On Tuesday, Eighth Graders at Mary Ellen Henderson welcomed the American Shakespeare Center, an award winning group of Shakespearean performers and educators from Staunton, as they introduced and explored Romeo and Juliet.  Students had the chance to get up and get into the action of the play, performing fight scenes, death scenes, while learning how Shakespeare embedded meaning and directions in his characters' lines.  

After a whole-class series of demonstrations and explorations of Shakespeare's culture and language, the class moved into smaller breakout sessions that gave everyone the opportunity to get some hands on experience under the tutelage of experts.  Many, many thanks to the Mary Ellen Henderson PTA for making the experience possible.  When learning Shakespeare, the ability to play's the thing!

He joined other educators, engineers, architects, green business and student leaders from around the country and participated in the Green Schools Youth Summit.

Representing MEH well, he enthusiastically returned with many ideas to work with students and administration towards a greener school.  Well done, Colter!


MEHMS SCA Connects Across Continents

The Mary Ellen Henderson Middle School Student Council Association (SCA) raised $520 during a fundraiser for Typhoon Haiyan victims and looked for an opportunity to give it directly to a school in need. Through the wonders of the internet, MEHMS teacher Michele Harcarik learned of a school in Scotland that had raised money for Libas Elementary School in the Philippines. After many emails back and forth, MEHMS sent their donation, and Libas Elementary sent these photos and their thanks.
