Alden Terrace School scholars learned about future career options and ways to obtain those goals through education during the building’s annual University Day on June 8. University Day was coordinated by teachers Katherine Bennett and Kelly Connor, along with the Student Council.
To kickstart the day, each classroom tuned into a virtual Zoom assembly led by Assistant Principal Shona Beldo that featured facts on colleges, universities and trade schools. In the video, students spoke about Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Ivy League schools, colleges and universities in New York State, music and art schools, medical and science schools, extracurricular activities available for college and university students, and what careers to pursue through vocational schools. The assembly video also shared fun facts about the teachers, such as where they studied abroad, what sports they played and what clubs they were a part of when they went to college. Students tested their knowledge of this staff trivia by playing Kahoot!
