On a Saturday morning, May 21, 40 8th grade students concluded their study of the Holocaust with a trip to the Holocaust Museum in Skokie. The students had a guided tour of the artifacts and displays in the museum before hearing a 45 minute presentation from Joanne Brainin, a Holocaust survivor. The museum visit also related to their study of acts of genocide in Guatemala and Bosnia.
Our 7th Grade students magnificently performed at the culmination of the iLEAD program. Awesome job!
Bateman was awarded a $15,000 teaching residency called iLEAD, in which teaching artists worked with 7th grade students on leadership skills, encouragement, and community building, through hip hop dancing. All aspects of this teaching residency took place during 7th grade specials classes every Tuesday/Thursday.
We've been featured! Aramark Chef Brian Kozlow conducted a live cooking demonstration of the Chicken-Ham Chef Salad for all the students that visited the cafeteria. The students were very engaged and really enjoyed it! Bateman was selected for this activity because four students chose to focus their 8th grade “Passion Project” on something that they felt strongly about – and these students were passionate about school lunch! Please read below!
Two 8th grade students organized the collection of basic supplies such as towels, soap, and diapers to donate to needy families in the Bateman community. The students also collected a total of $134 from the Bateman staff to donate to the Common Pantry. The Common Pantry assists families in need with food and basic supplies. Families may go to commonpantry.org for information about assistance, making donations, and volunteering.
