FRM Last Day of School
Friday, June 16, 2017
Jordan Franco is a 12 year old student at the Robert Frost Middle School in Lawrence, MA. Jordan was diagnosed with Sickle Cell Disease, a hereditary blood disorder which results in periods where he is hospitalized to manage the pain. The good news is that there IS a cure. A bone marrow (stem cell) transplant can cure Sickle Cell Disease.
Recently, the staff and PTO at the Robert Frost School volunteered the day to work on Jordan’s behalf. They had more than 60 people sign up with the “Be The Match” Bone Marrow Registry and are hoping that one of those people will “be the match” to help Jordan and his family. Thank you to everyone who attended and made this a special day!
On Thursday, May 29th, the Robert Frost Middle School Chapter of the National Junior Honor Society held its 11th Annual Induction and Recognition Ceremony. A total of 40 proud, new members were inducted into the organization, joining the Frost's 43 current members in front of a cafeteria full of family, friends, and staff members from the school. There was a traditional candle ceremony, followed by the NJHS Pledge. Next, current members Isaiah Ortiz (grade 7), Lowis Sanchez (grade 7), Jessica Pimental (grade 8), and Meriem Zouaoui (grade8) spoke about "How the National Junior Honory Society Helped Me Become a Better Person". All the new members, led by advisor Mary Gosselin, signed the NJHS Registry, and the entire evening ended with a celebratory reception. Congratulations to the 2014 Frost Middle School National Junior Honor Society!!
The Frost Student Council (FSC) and the Parent/Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsored the 1st Annual Spring Semi-Formal Dance for the 7thand 8thGraders on Friday, May 2, 2014. It was a nice way to give a small break to the hard-working students in between the ELA and Math/Science MCAS dates. This event was designed to be a nice, classy evening spent with Frost classmates and friends while enjoying some refreshments, the company of others as well as music and dancing. The Semi-Formal dance was held in the cafeteria, from 5 to 7:15pm. Usually, school dances are held in the gymnasium, but this event was held in the cafeteria to help make it feel different from regular dances. The FSC and the PTO teamed up to make this a unique setting by decorating in spectacular fashion! The entrance included a red carpet along with silver stanchion poles and red velvet ropes. There was also a green and white balloon arch picture station for party attendees to snap a selfie! The ceiling was covered with multi-colored lights from the disco ball making the dance floor sparkle! The PTO put out an awesome spread of food including pizza, popcorn, salad, veggies, cheese and crackers. There was even a fountain punch bowl!! As a semi-formal dance, the girls were encouraged to wear skirts and a nice top or dresses and the boys were encouraged to wear a nice shirt and a pair of dress pants or khakis. All of students that attended the event (about 100 in total) had a wonderful time. The FSC, PTO and of course the students look forward to the 2015 Spring Semi-Formal Dance next year!
