Congratulations Academic All-stars for quarter 2.
Some of our green team members went to the Capitol this week to talk to their representatives about climate change.
Roosevelt Students Travel to Washington D.C. with Project Success
As part of Project Success’ global expeditions, 47 MPS high school students from 8 Minneapolis public schools traveled to Washington D.C. in late January,  including 8 students from Roosevelt.
On the four-day trip students had the opportunity to tour Howard University, meet with a Howard professor and speak with Howard University students, an experience that was the highlight of the trip for many students.

As Roosevelt student Anisa Yusuf said, “I learned that I am interested in attending Howard University. I also learned I am interested in the HBCU environment!”

In addition, students visited the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum and were able to experience multiple national monuments including the White House, the U.S. Capitol, the Supreme Court of the United States, the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and the Lincoln Memorial. Project Success professional Facilitators guided students through a workshop about Historically Black Colleges and Universities. At Busboys and Poets, students participated in an identity workshop using spoken word and performance.

It was a powerful trip upon which the students are still reflecting and will carry with them as they look to their post-secondary planning. 
The spirit club made 300 sandwiches for the homeless last week.
