Middle/High School students in Ms. Jillian Kelly’s AP Spanish class collaborated with Mrs. Barbara Kellman’s kindergarten class at Cherry Lane Elementary School to give the elementary students the opportunity to learn a new language.

For the collaboration, AP students prepared lessons on topics such as greetings, colors, numbers, days of the week and more. Their goal is to continue to work with the kindergartners throughout the school year.

Cherry Lane students took action and participated in an Adopt-A-Family Food Drive as a way to support families in the community during Thanksgiving.

Under the organization of Mrs. Leigh Malinsky and Mrs. Alyson Cruz, food donations included canned goods, sides and desserts. These donations were on display throughout the month of November and were donated to families in need. Students had the opportunity to set their sights on a big goal and then watched the progress, helping a total of seven families in the community.
