Let's start this weekend off with a celebration!!! I am excited to share with you the district WINNERS of the annual BCC Martin Luther King Jr. Art Contest. We have 9 students this year who have been chosen as winners in the 17th annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Art Contest. At the BCC breakfast, they will announce which place each poster won. The keynote speaker this year is Cape Verdean American filmmaker/historian Claire Andrade-Watkins, a professor of Africana and Postcolonial Media Studies at the Institute for Liberal Arts & Interdisciplinary Studies at Emerson College as well as a 2016 Visiting Scholar, Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice, and a Fellow, Swearer Center for Public Service at Brown University.

Check out these young designers at Durfee!
This new course, entitled "Design" asks students to work through the design process via fashion design, interior design, graphic novel design.. It's an amazing group of trail blazers, led by the fabulous Ms. Ana Arsenio!
And check out the Letourneau 3rd grade with Terry Walkowicz and her New Bedford Symphony Orchestra musicians as they help students connect aspects of space and planetary movement through musical composition.. Common vocabulary was evident in this interdisciplinary learning experience for students, and it was fascinating to see and hear the connections between orchestral pieces and the way the planets move around the sun. She continued to discuss graphing movement (as she did with us last year) in sound as it moves upward and downward, but made connections to science and the planets.
