Although the trip started with a tense exchange between an unyielding MTA booth operator and an equally unyielding Ms. Alba, the trip was a smash hit. Students asked questions of the Hamilton cast in a Q&A session and performed their pieces before the show.
On Sunday January 8th, select teacher mentors and student mentees from AMS II were given the amazing opportunity to attend the Brooklyn Nets vs. Philadelphia 76ers game at Barlcay’s Center!
A revered AMS II tradition, the annual Talent Show and Thanksgiving Celebration reached new heights with stellar performances by students and teachers alike. Dance routines by teachers such as Mrs. Cush and Ms. O'Donnell, athletically inspired numbers by Ms. Grimes and Ms. Mimi, an avant-garde tricycle backdrop by Mr. Greene and, of course, hip hop numbers by Mr. Levy (Counselor of the Year of the Great State of New York) are just some of the highlights. A big shoutout to Phebe Dwamena, Eric Garces, Adelis Feliciano, Jezebel Peguero, student photographers who covered the event from every conceivable angle. Michael Briones and Hawa Lee operated the video camera (video of edited and posted performances coming to a vimeo account near you).
