Club Highlight – Model UN

Model UN Club Members thumbnail209881

In our club, the students learned about the goal of the United Nations and how it works to try and eliminate problems that have plagued humanity for centuries. In addition, they learned the responsibilities of becoming a delegate and why it is important to advocate for their country's position or best interest. Groups are organized by the country they chose to research. Part of their research is to find a current issue their country is facing and the affect it has on the people economically and socially. Some examples are Education, Health Environment, Security and Human Rights.

As a group they will create a slideshow that they will present to their peers to discuss and debate why their country and issue is important and should be heard.

The club is moderated by Mrs. Saunders and Mrs. Antonakis.

In honor of the season of giving and to spark holiday spirit, John Lewis Childs School encouraged students to bring in store-bought, unwrapped toys for its annual Toy Mountain drive on Dec. 17.

Moderated by the Student Council and teacher Julia Lafferty, the event generated more than 20 bags of toys by the end of the day. The toys were picked up by representatives from the Hance Family Foundation, who will distribute the items to those in need.
