As you enter 588 6th Street, Park Slope, Brooklyn, our assistant principal greets you. At your locker, you chat with friends while organizing for morning classes. If it is your birthday, your locker will be decorated in your favorite colors. Before homeroom, some students will be working in our Greenhouse classroom on their science research project. Down in the Art Room, students are busily working on projects, class- and club-related. On the third floor, the gospel choir or instrumental ensemble might be practicing for a liturgy or concert. In guidance, seniors are sharing college acceptances and scholarship awards. All this activity and the day hasn’t even officially begun.
And what a day it will be, with English classes where you explore the nuances of poetry; with math and science classes that teach you about the universe as manifest in the laws of physics; with history classes that will open a door to the past as a way to understanding the present; religion classes discovering Faith in the Media; or with foreign language classes where you discover your love of language. In between, there will, of course, be breaks: for lunch, where you can share stories and jokes over a plate of Marco’s delicious cheese fries; at physical education, where you can blow off steam in an intense game of volleyball; during study halls, where you can return to the greenhouse room or library to complete an article for the newspaper or research Ireland or Australia, our next international destinations.
2:36 pm: “Have a good afternoon, you are now dismissed . . .,” but the day is not done, as a myriad of extracurricular activities awaits: play practice, community service projects, extra help sessions, team practices, playoff games.
But don’t just take my word for it: come for a buddy day and find out for yourself. Call Mrs. DiBenedetto at 718-768-4406. Visit: stsaviour.org. Follow, like and share Saint Saviour on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
