L.I.V.E stands for : Leadership Initiative Volunteerism Empathy
Under the leadership of Ms. Aseltine, English Middle School teacher, the primary Objectives of LIVE Club are to develop student leadership and initiative on campus and in our community, develop student passion for school and community engagement, raise awareness about global and local issues through facilitated discussions and events on campus, and develop student self and social awareness of one’s role at school, in the community, and in the world.
This trimester, students enrolled in the L.I.V.E. Club enthusiastically embraced the cause of sustainability. They decided to try to raise awareness around campus, touring Elementary school classrooms in order to engage younger students. Nicola (8th grade) did also attend one of the MS Staff meeting, and presented to teachers with the goal of engaging adults as well.
On November 21, 2018, the 8th graders had the unique opportunity to conduct a live interview of scientists who were on the field: Daniel Hoer and his crew of 14 research scientists took us live on board of their ship on the Sea of Cortez. The team is currently studying hydrothermal vents. Students carefully crafted their questions ahead of the interview with their science teacher, Ms. Jacoway. We watched the ROV robot attached to the ship in action collecting samples. The ROV made us discover live views of the ecosystem flourishing around the hydrothermal vents.
We would like to express our gratitude to Ms. Chrysa Mineo for making this educational experience possible, and felt grateful for the unique and exciting opportunity.

Celebrating the return of peace – WW1 November 1918 Armistice
