Before our week flies by, I wanted to share this past Saturday 15 Crotona students went on a trip to the All American High School Film Festival at AMC Theater in Times Square. They joined over 500 high school students, coming from all over the United States, to experience a day watching student made films from all parts of the country, including our very own Crotona Students from last year; Tania Camarillo, Jendry Hiciano, Maria Colon, and Oliver Hernandez, screened their migration stories in the big theater for many to watch. Students also experienced a media arts college fair to learn about higher education opportunities in the media arts industry.
Most importantly, they had a lot of fun, and are more enthused about CTE. Next year, we aim to have continued representation from Crotona IHS student made films! Thank you to Crotona IHS, our principal Shweta Ratra, and Zaimoon Ally for supporting this trip!
Please congratulate these students for representing Crotona International High School with pride and getting out of their comfort zone!
