Zia, Macy, Alexis and Mary went around the whole campus this week and picked up trash! They were very proud of their efforts. We followed with a lengthy discussion about rotary dial phones - they had no clue what they were, imagine that. Just think of the changes that happen in the world over the course of a few generations!
The Danish National Archives’ digitization project “The Danish West Indies – Sources of History” is a fabulous collection of resources about Virgin Islands History. The site includes five million pages of digitized records from the colonial era which are now searchable.

Happy Transfer Day! This lovely book, written by Anecia Sewer and illustrated by Karen Samuel, is a perfect introduction to Transfer Day for all students. It is a fitting opening entry for “100 for 100 USVI,” a collection of one hundred information resources about USVI history and culture that I am gathering in recognition of the Centennial.

Coach Nurse and his Elementary Track Volts got a much deserved treat last week at SnoMoon! Kudos on a great season, Volts!
The sixth grade students wrapped up their model U.N. experience March 11 with a final assembly at the United Nations Headquarters. Their delegate finery is hidden under their winter coats – it was 19 degrees (Fahrenheit) outside!
Kudos to the PGIA students on their performances Saturday at Taste the Nations. And a very special shoutout and thank-you to their Arts teachers, Ms. Helen Sidiropolous and Ms. Jana Ferguson for their support and guidance along the way. Great job everyone!
The Wallace family participated in the Denmark Virgin Islands Transfer Marathon last weekend on St. John and did extremely well.
Hashia came second in the half marathon and Quinn was second overall and first place male in the 10k.
This message just in from Ms. Schlesinger and Ms. Morrison:
Wednesday was our day for sight seeing. We split into groups to explore different parts of New York City, including Top of the Rock, The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Museum of Modern Art, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York Public Library...The kids are loving popping into stores such as Lego, NBA, Forever 21, Barnes and Noble, Whole Foods. We’ve sampled world famous pizza and cheesecakes. Wednesday night as the kids were putting finishing touches on their poster displays, one said “I can’t believe we just got here last night!”
Today/ Thursday was the first day of conferences. Everyone was a little nervous in the morning, but by lunch feeling a lot more confident about the MMUN committee process.
Tomorrow we are supposed to get snow!!!!
