Unfortunately, the COVID-19 Pandemic hit New York schools just as Wheatley students were preparing for Showdown, our annual competition among the classes. Fortunately, we have been able to regroup somewhat and convert this year’s Showdown to a Remote Learning Edition.
For this first day of the competition, students needed to upload a FlipGrid video of them doing their Remote Learning in the PJs. The Junior class earned first place in this competition, followed by the 12th, 8th 10th and 9th grades!
More importantly, we held a donation drive in support of our friends at The INN. During this incredible crisis, The INN has seen a tremendous increase in need without a corresponding increase in donations. Thanks to the help of our students and parents, we were able to collect almost 1200 high-quality food donation items, all of which will be brought to The INN. Congratulations to the Senior class for earning first place in this double Showdown event. They were followed by 8th grade, 11th grade, 10th grade, 9th grade.
