Marion Street Elementary School aimed to foster a community of acceptance, inclusion and kindness during Unity Week from Oct. 22-26. As a culmination of the week, classes participated in “Manners Escape Room,” a team building activity with their peers on Oct. 26. 

Each class used their imaginations as they were challenged to work together to help tame wild animals that escaped from a safari park. The students had to show basic manners to return the animals to the park and discovered the manners through puzzles which unlocked doors. The activity emphasized collaboration, problem-solving skills and the students’ team work abilities as respect and polite actions were reinforced. Students were tasked with finding clues around the classroom which they read aloud on their journey. 

The team building activity, along with other Unity Week initiatives, were made possible due to the support of Marion Street’s Unity Committee. The team included faculty members Kara Boulay, Amy Brennan, Katie Bruno, Alexa Carvelli, Diana Intrabartola, Colleen Kiss, Jennifer Powder, Michelle Puglisi, Nicole Sherry and Margaret O’Brien. 

“Throughout the week our kindness theme was using good manners and being good friends so we decided to try to escape the room in honor of our theme today which is Teaming Up for Kindness,” said reading/ENL teacher Nicole Sherry. “We were encouraging all the classes to work as a team to try and solve the different manner puzzles to figure out the secret phrase at the end which was ‘Be The Reason Someone Smiles.’”

On Friday, Oct. 19, the students and staff at Marion Street Elementary School dressed in their finest pink attire to raise money for the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer crusade. Donations were collected and votes were tallied for the staff member who was the “pinkest” and therefore crowned “Most Pinkalicious.” Marion Street once again showed their kindness and raised over $500 in donations for this cause. Way to Go, Marion Street!

The sun shined down on Marion Street Elementary School as students, faculty, members of central administration and families gathered to celebrate International Day of Peace with a Pinwheels for Peace ceremony on Sept. 21. Coordinated by music teacher Kara Boulay and art teacher Patricia Wierzbicki, each student in the school colored a pinwheel, 450 total, which were then assembled by teachers and staff members. 

The students carried their pinwheels outside for the special ceremony and stood around the school’s Peace Pole. Principal Theresa Macchia opened the event by thanking everyone for joining in celebration and spoke about the significance of the day which is recognized around the world to acknowledge the power of peace. 

On the front steps of the school, Mrs. Macchia read the book “Imagine” by John Lennon, sharing words of world peace. Following the reading, Ms. Boulay led the students in song as they performed “A Million Dreams” from the film, “The Greatest Showman.” The students then placed their colorful pinwheels in the ground together. 
 
“They will blow in the wind to remind all of us that we are dreamers and that we do want the world to be a better place,” said Mrs. Macchia.
