BJ (from HS) and Emily (from EP) represented Boston Higashi School at Massasoit Art Festival in Canton. They greeted everyone with smiles and handed ceramics politely to customers.
When they had a break, they enjoyed watching live music, beautiful and unique artworks, and even painted a masterpiece. Both of them worked very hard and also enjoyed the event.

DIVE RIGHT INTO ELEMENTARY!
With the semester about to close and vacation coming elementary has been learning about various types of animal habitats from the frigid Arctic habitat to the warm habitat of the Rainforest. Elementary students really focused on the Ocean habitat in anticipation for our field trip to the New England Aquarium. We found that the Ocean habitat can be cold or warm and that many animals live there such as turtles, sharks, sting rays, various fish, plant life, and more! In some oceans there can be penguins as we saw on our field trip! The students had an exciting time seeing the animals they were learning about especially looking over at the penguins and even pressing there faces up to the gigantic ocean tank!
