Middle schoolers put on their first after school coffee house, with a cappella singing, poetry, rapid-fire comedy, and dance routines on Thursday. The well-attended event in the MPR was organized by sixth grade English teacher Ms. Bloomfield and special education teachers Ms. Lee-Bey and Ms. Whitfield. Students took part in the planning, made food, and also helped with clean-up. This was our first ever middle school open-mike event, following in the footsteps of the popular semiannual “Hook” arts afternoons in which the high school students perform.
