National Honor Society Induction – January 30, 2012 at Rochelle Park High School

The Sage Day Rochelle Park Chapter of the National Honor Society inducted four new students – Leor G., Danielle G., Nicole M. and Jamie S. – on January 30, 2012 in the school auditorium.  This marks the fourth induction ceremony for this chapter, which was established in April 2008 by Mr. Christopher Leonard, Director of Clinical and Educational Programs for the Sage Day Schools. The ceremony was well-attended by family members of the inductees, as well school adminstrative, educational, and clinical staff. During his address to those in attendance, faculty advisor Mr. John Selleck discussed the efforts our current NHS members have made toward embodying the four ideals of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. He also encouraged the four inductees to strive to actualize their leadership potential to make important contributions to the Sage Day community and our broader society. Click here to see more photos of the ceremony.

Boonton High School: The Holocaust Art Project

 

The 12th grade English class recently completed a unit on The Holocaust.  After reading two novels, Art Spiegelman’s Maus and Night by Elie Wiesel, the class discussed the themes and symbols described in the novels and were asked to create an artistic representation of The Holocaust.  Students used a variety of media and methods such as aging inks and barbed wire to depict the harshness during this time period.  Fabric was selected to mimic the striped material used for the uniforms the detainees were forced to wear and served as a frame for the final artwork. The end result left a profound impression as the work was combined to create a single art installation with a powerful message which stated simply “World Never Forget”.
