Boo-gie into the Halloween Dance

by Teresa’s Cheetahs PBL Class

All the middle school students and 9th grade alumni students were invited to the Halloween dance on October 17, 2014. Admission ranged from $7 to $10, depending on if you bought the tickets online or at the door. The profits benefited the school. The common room was decorated festively by student volunteers. There was a snack bar, which included Chip’s Ahoy cookies, popcorn, lemonade, seltzer water, and pretzels. Ghosts, goblins, and ghouls danced to the DJ’s popular songs. Flashing disco lights lit up the dance floor. The students would like to thank the chaperones, teachers, and parents who assisted with this awesome dance. We especially want to thank Karen Bloch for making the dance happen. This was one of our best dances yet!

Frost Valley Adventures

by The Cheetahs, the grade 6/7 learning group, lead by Teresa Badalamenti

The middle schoolers of Unity Charter School went on a two-night trip to Frost Valley from October 29 to October 31, 2014.The students of grades six through eight traditionally take an autumn camping trip. This year, the students went to Frost Valley, a YMCA camp in Catskills, NY. Frost Valley offers team-building activities such as archery, hiking, rock climbing, high ropes, low ropes, and survival skills. On the first night, the students had the opportunity to play commando and black ops as well as to go on a haunted trail. On the second night, the students had a campfire where they roasted marshmallows and performed skits. To top it all off, the food was delicious! It was an experience to remember!
