Congratulations to Grade 9 art student Emily Fox. Her artwork depicting a baseball player Tony Kemp from the Cotuit Kettleers was chosen for publication in Cape Cod Magazine. In 2017, the Ketleers celebrate their 70th anniversary. Our grade 9 art students participated in an all-Cape drawing celebration to commemorate various upcoming events. Check out the magazine and beautiful artwork which is on display in our East library.
Hoops for Haiti
The Sturgis East and West girls basketball showdown on Wednesday night had more energy than normal. The evening was centered around a fundraiser called "Hoops for Haiti", organized by seniors Maggie Adams, Julia Buckner, and Caroline Sullivan. The project raised money to help rebuild homes in Canaan, Haiti that were destroyed by a hurricane that struck this past fall. The event was a huge success! Over $1,600 dollars have been raised so far, surpassing the initial goal. Spectators and players were extremely generous and enjoyed a 3-point contest at half time and a 50/50 raffle. Many thanks to the Sturgis community who fully embraced this fundraiser! If interested, you can still donate to Hoops for Haiti:

Sturgis trip for spring 2018
West biology teacher and counselor Kristine May and East history teacher Nadia Selim will be leading a Sturgis trip to Eastern Europe during Spring Break 2018. The group will visit Berlin, Krakow, Budapest, and Prague.
Travel through the Iron Curtain and World War II to Gothic cathedrals and ancient cities that are now more vibrant than ever. Berlin mixes historical significance, rich culture, and an exciting cosmopolitan energy. Prague, which escaped the bombs of WWII, woos you with old-world charm. In Krakow and Budapest, two of Europe's most underrated cities, architectural gems await around every corner.
On this 10-day trip, your child will be immersed in the culture, language, and foods of four different European countries. Imagine the experiences they will have, and the passion for travel they will return with. Please contact Kristine May or Nadia Selim if you would like more information about this once in a lifetime opportunity; the detailed itinerary can be found at eftours.com.
Trip to Mannheim, Germany
As part of our ongoing efforts to foster an exchange program with German high school students who visited Sturgis earlier this year, a trip is being organized to travel to Mannheim, Germany during Spring Break 2018. Students will stay with a host family and attend German high school classes, as well as visit local attractions. This trip is currently being offered to this year's freshmen. The approximate cost is $2,500, including airfare and other travel fees. For more information contact the trip leader, Mr. Jeff Hyer, who has taught history at Sturgis since 2004.
Middle East Model United Nations
Congratulations to Sturgis East Spanish teacher Camille Manrique for helping organize the first Middle East Model United Nations (MEMUN) conference held in the United Arab Emirates in November. The non-profit she co-founded, International Partners for Peace, has been training Emirati students and teachers for the past 2 years. MEMUN was able to hold their first conference at the American University of Sharjah. Ms. Manrique commented, "It was incredible to work with students in another country, especially in a region which is in so much need of peace. I look forward to sharing my experience not only with Sturgis MUN Club students, but with all my students."
