"Honoring Dr. Seuss"

"Do you like green eggs and ham? I do not like them, Sam-I-Am. I do not like green eggs and ham." Transfiguration's kindergarten class, however, enjoyed the special treat. They recently celebrated the author's birthday with the unique meal, which was prepared by Ms. Pirela and Mrs. Quiroz. The students also donned handmade Cat in the Hat headwear. Principal James Carlo read the classic Dr. Seuss story "Green Eggs and Ham" to the class.

"GeoBee Semifinalist"
We'd like to wish congratulations to sixth-grade student Kyle Esteban. Kyle has been notified by the National Geographic Society that he is one of the semifinalists eligible to compete in the 2019 National Geographic GeoBee New Jersey State Competition. The contest will be held at Rowan University on Friday, March 29.
This is the second level of the GeoBee competition. The National Geographic Society has invited up to 100 of the top-scoring students in each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia to compete in the State GeoBees. State champions will receive a medal, $1,000 in cash and other prizes, as well as a trip to Washington, D.C., to represent their state in the National Championship, which will be held at National Geographic Society headquarters May 19-22.
Good luck, Kyle!
