“Girl Up” Women’s Shelter Drive at Leonia High School

Leonia High School’s newly-formed “Girl Up” Club held a collection of much-needed supplies for the Center for Hope and Safety, a women’s shelter in Rochelle Park. “Girl Up” is affiliated with the United  Nations and is dedicated to raising awareness of women’s issues across the globe.

Student leaders Isabelle Raskin and Ji Jung Lim are sophomores at Leonia High School (class of 2019) and formed the club after learning about some of the hardships facing girls and young women around the world. Their goal, according to Isabelle, is to help in whatever seemingly small ways they can “because that little bit makes a difference.” After researching local communities, Isabelle contacted the shelter in Rochelle Park to see what they needed. The club came together to collect five boxes of kitchen and bathroom supplies to bring to the shelter.

Isabelle and Ji Jung are excited about the future of their club, and are already planning a number of future events to raise awareness for the plight of adolescent girls across the globe.

LAS Science Academy Trip 2017

The Junior Science Academy Class visited the City University of New York – College of Staten Island on March 24th. Thanks to Professor Neophytos A. Antoniades, PhD and lab technician Richie Brown the students were engaged the entire day exploring many aspects of electronics. The class performed many eye-opening experiments in the lab. Their knowledge and enthusiasm was apparent to Mrs.Butterfield and Mrs. Smyth. The real life application of Faraday’s Law and other topics explored was quite valuable to the students. They even had a chance to view some projects made by students at the University – a real thrill!!! To quote our students – “This was a cool, Educational Field Trip”. The students were treated to a pizza lunch. Thank you Dr. Antoniades!
