Seven seventh grade students from Samuel S. Gaines Academy impressed the judges at the recent districtwide Project Citizen event hosted at Samuel Gaines Academy. With the assistance and support from their civics teacher John Davino, these students were able to impress the judges and represent Samuel Gaines Academy with their proposal that “Suspension should be Suspended!” Pictured, from left, are Mateo Rubio, Adriana Calderon, Ashley Dean, Ebony Young, Yanet Guzman, Tatiana Wilks, and Aide Aguilar as they prepare for their group’s four-minute speech, “Solutions, Solutions, Not Suspension.”
