Students began their exploration into chemical and physical changes through a series of stations that required them to document the physical properties of various chemicals before and after a reaction may have taken place. Our goal is to relate what we see at the macroscopic level to any possible changes occurring at the microscopic (molecular) level and support our answers with observations.

Freshman students attended the Garfield Conservatory on May 24, 2019, with the Freshman team teachers Mr. Voss, Mr. Dunphy, Ms. D. Ruiz, and Ms. M. Ruiz to explore the various types of plants in the conservatory. Students toured and learned more about the flora of different regions, as well as engaged with their peers. This field trip was an incentive for having 100% of our freshmen at Gage Park High school tested for the PSAT 9th exam.

The Day of the Dead (Spanish: Día de Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico, in particular the Central and South regions, and by people of Mexican heritage elsewhere. The multi-day holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died, and help support their spiritual journey. In 2008, the tradition was inscribed in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. Staff and students celebrated and recognized their love ones by bringing in artifacts that represented them and added them to the beautiful display.
