We are halfway through summer and Bronx Latin wants to shout out some of our summer superstars! This summer Bronx Latin students have been involved in many activities, college trips, and more! Here is a tidbit of what some of our students have been up to this summer:

CBI College Sendoff

Many of our 2016 graduates have started their summer programs at their universities – and are already acing their summer courses! College Bound Initiative celebrated some of our seniors at our Senior Sendoff as are on their way to their colleges! Over 70% of the graduates of the class of 2016 will be attending 4 year universities starting in the fall!

College Summer Programs

In addition to the senior sendoff, we have had many students visiting colleges as

well. Students have attended summer programs at Gettysburg College, Skidmore College, and more! At these college programs students take classes, learn more about the schools and about campus life at the colleges.

We had a large number of Bronx Latin students participate in Wishbone projects this summer where many people generously donated to them being able to participate in some prestigious summer programs – from tennis camps, to camps at Yale University where they get to take summer classes on campus. We even had students like Arianda participate in the Project Oceanology camp at the University of Connecticut!

Goals for Girls Summer Intensive Program

Here is the Goals for Goals program summary according to Bronx Latin 10th grader Israk K: “This summer we were part of The Goals for Girls Summer Intensive Program which takes place in the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum. GOALS is a six week program for the rising 9th and 10th grade young women who get to learn the STEM related fields such as Aviation, Space and Astronomy, Marine and Earth Science, and most essentially Engineering and Technology. We got opportunities to do hands on and team building activities to enhance our communication and listening skills. We visited several great colleges such as Columbia University, UPenn, St. John’s University and etc. In addition, we went to museums and learned about the water quality in New York City, and marine animals. Lastly, we are studying to retake the Geometry Regents in August to get a higher grade than what we originally got.”

Bronx Latin Seniors visit the White House

12795314_10107302858734430_3044757286748439621_nOn March 10, Bronx Latin Seniors were invited to a State Arrival Ceremony on the South lawn of the White House, to welcome Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to the White House. The invitation stemmed from letters written by the 12th grade Honors Civics class about issues ranging from gun violence, asthma, the minimum wage, and sexual assault laws. We could not be more proud of our seniors who attended the ceremony on the South Lawn of the White House and were able to end their time at Bronx Latin with such a memorable trip.

After our trip the students received a Letter from Obama, in which President Barack Obama wrote some inspiring words for our students, which you can read below along with seeing pictures from our trip where students were also able to visit the Supreme Court and US Capital Building as well!

Congratulations class of 2016 for being invited to the White House and getting to be a part of this wonderful experience.
