Over the summer of 2017, MHS students were asked to read "Born a Crime," a memoir by Trevor Noah. Classes then had Book Chats to discuss this important novel about growing up biracial in apartheid South Africa.
MFEE is proud that we supported this project with funding to make sure that all MHS students were given the book.
Ms. Schatzman from Hillside School and Ms. Kozma from Glenfield Middle School gave a presentation to the MFEE Board about flexible/alternative seating.
Both teachers were grant recipients last year: Schatzman received funding for Hoki Stools, core balls, and Squishy seats; Kozma received funding for Standing Desks.
Both have seen real improvement in student attentiveness, behavior, and overall well-being using flexible seating in their classrooms.
Here are some of the fantastic community speakers and organizers who presented at our Life After High School Mini Conference. Their stories and wisdom are an incredible resource for teens.
Your magical dollars at work! MFEE recently funded a project at Renaissance School to nurture future filmmakers and storytellers.
Under the guidance of teachers Joyce Korotkin and Jackie Collier Thomas, students will address key social and emotional challenges facing teens today and create PSAs that confront them.
MHS senior Alissa Brown is still carrying two wooden coins that she received in the MFEE Life After High School "Start Something!" Workshop led by Charles Rosen, founder NewARK Farms.
She explains the significance of the coins: “One says, 'The world is created for me.' The other says, 'I am but dust and ashes.' I've kept those coins in each of my pockets since the conference. They give me the drive to go forward without being too arrogant. Yes, this world is created for me and I can take full advantage of all of the opportunities it has to offer. But I am also but one part of the whole cycle and a bigger community.
MFEE recently funded a grant to purchase additional shop equipment that will not only boost MHS Robotics courses, but will also enhance the auto mechanics class.
You're nurturing future mechanics, engineers, and designers!
