    by EMS Moodle Admin - Wednesday, January 11, 2017, 12:12 PM
    Benjamin Araujo has been studying composition as part of the New York Philharmonic's outreach program called "Very Young Composers." It is an after school and weekend program originally started in 1995 that teaches young people about music composition with teaching artists and professional musicians.
    On January 18th, Benjamin will have the honor of having his latest composition performed by the Philharmonic at David Geffen Hall! Having one of the greatest, most prestigious orchestras in the world perform music that he wrote specifically for them, is an experience and honor that cannot be overstated.

    8th Graders Visit Italian Cultural Center
    by EMS Moodle Admin - Tuesday, December 20, 2016, 11:54 AM

    This past week, Mrs. Logan's and Mrs. Astarita's 8th grade Italian classes had a wonderful opportunity to partake in an Italian cultural trip. The students visited the Italian Cultural Center / Generoso Pope Building to learn about the holiday traditions of Italians. They got to ride in the Tuckahoe trolley and while there they viewed a screening of "Christmas in the Italian Arts" had a lesson from one of the center historians and got a chance to view the Foundations' enormous Presepio. This was followed up with a hands on pizza making class, where the students learned how to make pizza and even had a chance to make and eat their own!
