Students may remember that the Greene Annual Spelling Bee was held on January 15th. After fourteen rounds and two solid hours of spelling, all the words were gone and two students won in a tie! Those students, Rohan FUN-SAY and Partha KRISH-NAH, later took a tie-breaking written test to determine who would advance to represent our school in the Regional Semi-Finals. Rohan emerged as our Greene middle school winner! Rohan is one of only 57 students in the entire Bay Area to advance to this round, and he'll be attending the competition on Saturday, February 17th in Pleasanton.
Tomorrow is the time to get fancy! The theme for tomorrow is Fancy Friday! Students should pull out mom's old prom dress or dad's suit and get fancy. The day will include a noon time activity of a cat walk fashion show.
Thanks for that Gavin! As Gavin mentioned, the Black History Month Film Festival will continue for the next four weeks featuring various African-American themed films. Stay tuned to the Greene Screen tomorrow for next week's films. But, continuing this week : You can watch today's trivia question subject, Chadwick Boseman, in the Oscar nominated film "Black Panther." Travel to the faraway land of Wakanda and watch as Black Panther attempts to save the world. That film is showing in C4.
Remember the Titans will be also be showing today. The film features the true story of a high school football team and their struggles in Virginia. Remember the Titans shows in F-5. If space travel is more of your thing, head to room N-5 for Hidden Figures. The story features the story of a female African American mathematician who aided the astronauts in the Mercury space program.
If fictional stories are more your thing, "Creed" is showing in P-2. This spinoff of the Rocky series tells the story of Apollo creed's son, Adonis as he seeks help from the former champ, Rocky Balboa. Also, please note that If you are under 13 years of age please bring a signed permission slip to Creed and Black Panther. Again, the movies will be Remember the Titans in F-5, Hidden Figures in N-5, Creed in P-2, and Black Panther in C-4.
