A Week of Languages

A Week of Languages

R.C. Murphy Junior High School students and staff celebrated the beauty and culture of three world languages as they marked “Foreign Language Week.”

During the weeklong celebration, students participated in a trivia contest and a door decorating contest. A traveling art exhibit was on display in the hallways and music from different countries played  on the intercom between class times.

Additionally, members of the Foreign Language Honor Society hosted a series of events for the district’s elementary students. Cooking and culture classes were hosted and each one focused on either the Spanish, Italian or French language. Also, for the first time in over 15 years, the FLHS students visited with the sixth-graders at Nassakeag, Arrowhead and W.S. Mount elementary schools and presented lessons to introduce them to the foreign language options available for study at the junior high level.

R.C. Murphy Junior High School seventh- and eighth-graders showcased their linguistic skills this winter when they took part in the school’s annual spelling bee.

After going head to head for 20 challenging rounds, eighth-grader Elizabeth Star captured the schoolwide title by correctly spelling the word “negativism.” She will now compete in the Long Island Spelling Bee, which will be held at Hofstra University on Feb. 5.

This year’s contest runner-up was eighth-grader Grace Li.

Baking Up Treats

Baking Up Treats

R.C. Murphy Junior High School’s Community Connections Club made this year’s holiday season a bright one for local residents by baking cookies for 18 families serviced by the school’s food pantry.

As a result of their dedication, the students rolled up their sleeves and created enough tasty treats for the deserving recipients as well as the support staff in the building.
