Freshmen students are ready to test the strength of their atomic models that they designed and built for their Practical Engineering and Advanced Physical Science class at Fontbonne Hall Academy. The goal was to represent an atom that is held together from materials that resist breakage when dropped from a height of 14 feet. The materials preventing damage would be analogous to the strong nuclear force, and also to a more limited sense, weak nuclear force.
Students in Ms. Pagan's and Ms. Franceschetti's Spanish classes are doing the Pen Pal Project in which they send letters to students in Puerto Rico. The students will write to each other until May. The girls are very excited about the project and last week they received their first letters! The school in Puerto Rico is a public co-ed school in Bayamon, named EBECM Papa Juan XXIII. Ms. Pagan's cousin is their English teacher. The students in Puerto Rico write their letters in English and the students here at Fontbonne write their letters in Spanish.
The English department will be taking students to England and Ireland over the February Break. Locations include London, Stratford-Upon-Avon, and Dublin. To see the full itinerary please click on the icon to the left.
During the week of September 26th, the English department took part in Banned Books Week. They read books that have been banned by certain schools/districts... classics that we all read growing up. On Friday, the entire department wore a T-shirt that read "Fight the Ban! Read Banned Books." The back of the T-shirt lists books that have been previously banned as well as where they were banned.
The Great Irish Fair of New York was held in Coney Island on Saturday, September 24th. Every year, at the fair, they name a "Colleen Queen." This year's honor went to Fontbonne's very own, Katie Byrnes! Katie has always been proud of her Irish heritage. She spends a lot of her time in Irish dance classes at the O'Malley Irish Dance Academy. This was her 13th year performing at the fair. Katie has represented her school in local, regional, and national competitions. She's performed for the Mets, Nets, and Cyclones. She's also performed at City Hall, Borough Hall, and Ellis Island.
