Several of our McGuffey students are members of Cheer Image Iconz Recreation Program. This cheer program was established in 2007 and is owned by one of our McGuffey parents, Mrs. Hudson. They are a competitive performance recreation team that has won numerous national titles over the last 15 years. So far this season, they have competed in Erie, PA, Cleveland, OH, Louisville, KY and Buffalo, NY. All eight athletes in the Youth Level 1 team, Princess Reign, attend McGuffey. They recently competed in Buffalo, NY at the Queens City National Championship and placed 1st in their division and also won Best Tumbling out of the 21 teams in their session. Athletes are: A‘Nylah Dorsey, Senaija Smith, Harmony Engram, BryAnn Logan, Araelyn Washington, Norah Foster, Mi’Onna Williams, and Amirah Hudson.
Our Preschool welcomed Gymsters to McGuffey last week. This was the first session at McGuffey this year. Gymsters is a company from Youngstown, owned by Elizabeth O’Hara, that comes to local schools and works with our staff to help the students learn the basic skills they’ll always need and discover the fun of physical activity. Gymsters will be back on April 14th for more preschool fun.
The 4th graders at McGuffey School recently visited the Butler Institute of American Art in Youngstown, Ohio. This visit was a part of the “Our Good Neighbor” program offered through the Butler Institute. Below are some photos from the field trip. One of McGuffey’s retired teachers, Mrs. Beth Lowe, is a docent at the Butler and was there to share the exhibits with our students. Our McGuffey students were congratulated on
their positive behavior during the visit.
