In Remembrance...

By K. Donathan, December 11, 2014 2:27 PM


The George Washington High School community will join together this evening (Thursday, December 11th) at 6:00 in the gym to participate in ''A Celebration of Life'' in honor and memory of sophomore Nikole Josephine Booth, who was tragically killed in an automobile accident on Saturday night.

Continued thoughts and prayers go out to her family, friends and everyone else who had a chance to be a part of her life.




International Day at GW!

By Deena Dahshan, December 8, 2014 2:53 PM


For many years the image of ''melting pot'' was used to describe the experience of immigrants coming to America. The expectation was that as people from diverse backgrounds, cultures and religions make their way to our country, the American cultural crucible would melt away all the differences, leaving one homogenous population. However, it would be better to define today's society as a tossed salad with so many cultures that make up this country. Without so many other cultures' food, music, and history, we would not be the tossed salad we have become. The days of the melting pot are gone.

George Washington High School will have its first ever International Day on Wednesday, December 10th, 2014. Countries from all over the world will be showcased along with traditional clothing, food and accessories. This is a great opportunity to grasp a new understanding of cultures and clear previous bias and stereotypes. It is so important for students to have a deeper global awareness and understanding of other cultures.

Hopefully this event will broaden students' perspectives on the world. Many students will be representing their home countries with displays. Students are encouraged to take part to present and will be awarded community service for their efforts. Also, the displays will be judged and the top three will be awarded cash prizes. This student run event will be sponsored by MSA and will be held in the library during all periods.
