The Enrichment Class from the Our Lady of Peace School in Lynbrook visited the Manhattan District Attorney's Office on Feb. 28. These 6th, 7th and 8th-grade students were able to gain fascinating, first-hand knowledge of the legal system and how it operates. The students had the opportunity to enhance class preparations for The Catholic Middle School Mock Trial Program that they will participate in May at St. John's University. They also had discussions about cyber crimes and cyber bullying, visited arraignments, viewed a trial in NYS Supreme Court and toured the detective squad, line-up area and engineering.
Mrs.Peter's 3rd Grade completed their class Lenten Service Project. The students donated items and created "Easter Baskets" which were donated to Sr. Barbara at the OLP Parish Social Ministry. The baskets will be distributed to needy families.
GREAT JOB 3rd Grade!
