McPhail commented that it’s all about using time wisely, “It’s a matter of prioritizing,” she stated. She has impressed and continues to impress her teachers, fellow students and the staff members, exceeding as the basketball team captain as well as serving in multiple roles as treasurer of the National Honors Society, co-president of the Neuro-science Club and vice president of her senior class.

Sixth grade STEM Magnet Middle School student Jamesha Singleton-Weathers is making her mark within the school system, “We’ll be watching you,” Superintendent Dr. Manuel J. Rivera said.

It’s really wonderful and I enjoy being in STEM.” At sixth grade she is already a powerhouse balancing Forensics Club on Monday’s, New England Science and Sailing (NESS) on Tuesday’s, girls fitness on Wednesday’s and Drama Club on Thursday’s after her regular school hours.

“She is our right hand, left hand, right leg and left leg,” Texidor stated after the honoring of Stephanie Zauner who has been working as the STMHS secretary for four years now.
