The Wedding Singer!

The Wedding Singer takes us back to 1985 when hair was big, greed was good, collars were up, and a wedding singer might just be the coolest guy in the room! Rock star wannabe Robbie Hart is New Jersey's favorite wedding singer until his own devastating heartbreak threatens to ruin his career. But his hope is renewed when he meets Julia, a waitress dreaming of her own perfect wedding to Glen, a Wall Street shark. As this new friendship blossoms into something more, Robbie must decide whether to pull off the performance of his life or lose the girl of his dreams forever.

ADHD, ASD & Reading Disabilities Research Studies- Kennedy Krieger Institute

We are recruiting participants between 8 to 17 years old to participate in a research study to learn if there are differences between the brain's structure and its function in children and adolescents with and without Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and Reading Disabilities.

This is a great opportunity for children and adolescents to learn about research and play an active role in scientific exploration! 

Cultural Imperative Program

The purpose of the Cultural Imperative Program is to increase cultural awareness and critical thinking skills among high school students of African descent. We strive to help students feel empowered as descendants of African people, instead of feeling ashamed of their skin color or hair texture, or other negative stereotypes associated with being “Black.” As a result of participating in the Cultural Imperative Program, students enhance their critical thinking skills and develop cultural awareness by reading, analyzing, and discussing a variety of texts.
