PALMS SHINES AGAIN!  Notes from Mrs. Kesilman:

I am very proud of Lily Clifford, Noah Diez, Julianna Hershey and Joseph Lipton for the work and determination they put into their 10 minute documentary entitled How Oscar Hammerstein II Changed Musical and Cultural Frontiers.  They participated in the National History Day project regional competition at Delaware Valley University on March 18th.  These four students won first place for their documentary and are moving on to the state competition, which takes place at Scranton University, on April 22nd and 23rd. Lily, Noan, Julianna and Joey worked together and overcame many obstacles during this process. They learned a lot about formal research, finding and interviewing experts, evaluating sources, arranging museum visits with experts, script writing, annotating bibliographies, recording, video creation and the arduous task of video editing. Lily was unable to attend the contest in person because she was in the BCMEA orchestra at the same time.  The group created a cardboard cutout of Lily to take with them, and the superhuman Lily Clifford was able to be in two places at one time!  Best of luck to this group next month at the state competition!
