Two teachers from the Academy of Holy Angels in Demarest received Teacher Seminar grants to study in the United Kingdom this summer. Hillsdale’s Gail Fair, chair of the AHA History Department, will participate in programs at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland. She also plans to visit Glenthroes High School, which participated in Skype sessions with her AP Government and Politics classes at AHA.
Nancy Schneberger, an Allendale resident and chair of the AHA English Department, will attend programs at Oxford University. “Collegial sharing, lectures from experts in their fields, and full concentration on a topic on location is a most vibrant way of exploring a subject,” says Schneberger. “I look forward to sharing ideas with the teachers who have been selected from all over the United States and with the Oxford professors in the program.”
Ridgefield Park-based band Bro4 performed at the annual White House Easter Egg Roll. The boy band—Alam brothers Casey, Madison, Levi and Skyler—performed three 20-minute sets on the White House lawn during the 138-year-old event. In a statement, the brothers say they played the gig to support Melania Trump’s pledge to help end cyberbullying. Many of the bands songs, including “Bruises,” are about anti-bullying.
