Charlestown High School and ACC, they flow together (especially in BDL tournaments). Last weekend saw Luis Santos Ortiz, Darwin Pemberthy and Brighton High School’s own Ali Mahamed Ali compete city-wide and with the inclusion of teams from Providence, Rhode Island.

Luis and Darwin advanced into the Championship Division, not bad for a freshman and a first-year debater!

ACC recently hosted Jeremy Gooden of the Citi Performing Arts Center for a working lunch and a theater activity, which came with some exciting news!

Mr. Gooden told students about a summer employment opportunity for which ACC students would be the perfect fit. Over the course of the summer, students would learn the basics of theater and performance arts, with a bent toward advancing social justice critiques! With no experience necessary, and a steady check to boot!

Students then took part in a workshop that emphasized self-expression and the basic elements of performing arts!

ACC students will be auditioning for the summer program tomorrow, February 12th! Break a leg!

On Saturday, January 9th, the ACC Robotics Team (nicknamed “Deez Gearz”) had a highly successful league meet at Arlington High School!

The team won three of their five official matches. In an unofficial extra match, the ACC team almost single-handedly beat a team of two other robots with their single robot, with a score of 26 points for ACC vs. 28 points by the other two robots combined.

Team members did a great job of making improvements to the robot between matches, and they collaborated and strategized well with other school teams when they competed together.

The team has one more league meet, on Saturday, January 23rd, at Beaver Country Day School in preparation for the official tournament on Saturday, February 6th, at Milton High School. Good luck!

PS: Check out this awesome video of their champion robot!
