March 29, 2021-- The English as a Second Language (ESL) Department hosted its second district-wide virtual family night on March 25. Families were invited to attend a live-streamed space show hosted by “Captain Cara,” (also known as Cara Muscio, Planetarium Director) from the Robert J. Novins Planetarium at Ocean County College. Students were amazed as they learned about the planets, cultural significance of the constellations, and the recent explorations of Mars with NASA’s space rover, Perseverance.
Following the “Stars in My Backyard” show, students and their families joined teachers for a Google Meet where they created their own constellations and tested their space knowledge with a competitive game of KAHOOT.
"It was great to see so many families come together to connect with one another, with teachers, and with the community," said World Languages Supervisor Adrienne Gold.
