The Chelsea Football Club Visits Framingham For Equality and Diversity Workshops and Bespoke Coaching Session to Cameron and Fuller Middle School Students.
Huge thanks to Joseph Corazzini, Casey Bell, and Maggie Olegario for putting the pieces together for this incredible opportunity. Read this MetroWest Daily News article from Zane Razzaq for more information.
The philosophy behind the approach is, as Dr. Epstein advises, that “Students aren’t GIVING teachers a hard time. They are HAVING a hard time.”
All current 4th graders (rising 5th graders) are invited and encouraged to sign up for band for the next school year. Visit the FPS Elementary Band website for more information.
