High Quality Work, Remotely

Despite the abrupt shift to online learning, students across our schools are still producing high quality work. Here are just a few samples, all created this spring. 

Cards for Heroes, MELS

Middle and high school students from MELS, our Network School in Forest Hills, Queens, created thank you cards for the healthcare workers and staff at Elmhurst Hospital which is located near their school and has treated a particularly large number of patients suffering with covid-19. These notes were digitized and sent to the hospital virtually to be shared widely with staff, bringing a little joy and appreciation to their day.

Virtual Passports, Launch Middle School 

Middle schoolers at Launch one of our Network School in Brooklyn, took a trip around the world – virtually! They researched different countries across the globe, did virtual tours of famous landmarks, and watched videos that gave them a sense of the many different places and experience on Earth. They kept a travel journal and earned “stamps” in their passport for all the trips they took.
