DEERFIELD BEACH| St. Ambrose School finished off the year with a few activities that made for another memorable year. Even with the COVID-19 pandemic still affecting the normality of life, it did not stop the students, teachers, and faculty at St. Ambrose School from donating to a cause, hosting a virtual art exhibit, and celebrating the end of the academic year with a “wave.”
Seventh grade students, along with their middle school and religion teacher Jennifer Newstreet, organized a “Right to Life Baby Shower” to benefit the Respect Life Pregnancy Center in Coconut Creek. Students collected diapers, baby wipes, blankets and assorted baby items to help mothers with their newborns and toddlers. All together, seven boxes were filled with the donations that were delivered to the center.
Students at St. Ambrose also expressed their inner artist by drawing, coloring, and sketching works of art for the school’s Visual Art Exhibit. Music and art teacher Jessica Bermudez compiled a video showcasing all of the works of art created by students, that ranged from drawings of the Mayflower ship, to superheroes, various animals, landscapes, the nativity scene, and even imitations of the famous “scream” painting, originally created by Norwegian Expressionist artist Edvard Munch.
And finally, students and Coach Sean McKeown from St. Ambrose School gathered to “wave” good-bye to the 2021 academic year. In a video filmed around the school with different grade levels, the coach lined up along with students and they all followed along in a choreography that imitates a wave. The “wave” is often seen at sporting events in arenas and gymnasiums.
