Students and parents on the Lower Campus enjoyed a lively Earth Day performance on Friday, April 19. Percussion instructor, Buckley Griffis, with support from the classroom teachers directed the tribute to the 43rd anniversary of the original Earth Day in 1970. The celebration included educational segments designed to highlight ways that children can help reduce the impact that we have on the planet.
 
For the third year in a row, Palm Beach Day Academy has maintained its status as a Green School of Excellence. This distinction is awarded by the Palm Beach County Green Schools Recognition Program, organized by FAU and the Pine Jog Environmental Education Center.

pic1 Nine Palm Beach Day Academy Seventh Graders have qualified for special summer programs through the Duke University Talent Identification Program. To qualify, students must first earn scores on their school’s standardized tests that place them in the 95th percentile nationally. Students with such scores then have the option of taking the SAT or ACT in grades 7 - 9.
 
Of the thirteen 7th Graders who qualified to take the SAT or ACT, nine have achieved the State Recognition Level. State Qualifiers must earn an SAT Math score of 520 or better, or an SAT Critical Reading score of 510 or better, or an SAT Writing score of 500 or better; or two of the three following scores: Math = 510, Critical Reading = 500, Writing = 490.
 
State Recognition – Lilly Carden, Lulu Fanjul, Alexis Gorfine, Adeliza Grace, Harrison Koeppel, Blair Lalor, Robbie Linck, Noah Whall and Oliver Zenou.
 
Of that group of qualifiers, most have plans to attend the Duke TIP program either this summer or next. Several of last year's qualifiers will be attending for a second time this summer.
