Our Ex-Student at the US Congess


This year's graduate Kyryl Myronenko, who entered Georgetown University, Washington, USA, had the honor of being invited to the United States Capitol. Having such meetings with graduates from this university who work in the Capitol is a traditional event. This year, four current students of this prestigious higher educational establishment were invited to the annual event. Kyryl Myronenko was invited as a scholarship holder from Ukraine, and was given an opportunity to address the congressmen, senators and Speaker Pelosi with a speech during which he thanked the American people for supporting Ukraine. Kyryl said that he had an opportunity to talk to many people there, and they all firmly believe in the victory of Ukraine and the complete restoration of the territorial integrity of the country.

Thank you letter to our foreign colleagues


Dear Colleagues,

On 24th February 2022 Russia began a slaughterous war against our country. According to the statistics 303 students out of 720 were forced to flee from Ukraine and had to continue their studies and receive knowledge in many different schools outside our country.

Thank you for providing a shelter and a safe place to our children. I am confident that Ukraine will win and that our students will return back to Cherkasy, their home. We know that we will always remember your care and protection that you showed towards the externally displaced people of our country.

May peace and goodness be with you!

Yours sincerely,

Serhiy Sayenko,

Principal of First City Gymnasia, Cherkasy, Ukraine

Reconstruction by Diana Shypovitch (Ukraine)


Ukraine Special Dispatch

My fingers are sore from the cold; my coat is soaked with rain. I am clinging to the blue stripe of the flag, trying to stay grounded, keeping my thoughts under control. But they scatter. I am staring blankly at people who prepare for the approaching march, while the white noise from their excitement fills my ears.

Main street is busy during lunchtime. Some, hurried by the rain, throw a quick look at us, before disappearing in the warmth of a cafe. Some stop and scrutinize our procession. Do we look silly? Threatening? Or, perhaps, miserable? Curious, I survey the gathering. Ordinary people with extraordinary hearts—they answered to the plea in the local magazine to join the march.

“Let’s go!” someone cries out, impatient to start moving.

Project Speak Together Helped Financially


For almost a year our Gymnasia has been taking part in Project Speak Together, which proved to be very successful. The aim of this English language project is to have a weekly communication with teenagers from different cities of California, learning the language and building friendly relationships. This project is appreciated by both sides a lot. A couple days ago a letter from one of the Speak Together tutors was received. The young teenager raised 200 US dollars and has a desire to donate the money to our Gymnasia. This is his letter:

Віртуальна приймальня

Батьки 2 клас запитує: Доброго дня! Хочу привернту Вашу увагу на те що [...]

Я звернувся до вчительки з вашим листом і ось що вона відповіла:

В зв'язку з тим, що уроки в 2 класах по 25 хвилин, батьки ще на початку навчання були попереджені про початок уроків на 5-10 хвилин пізніше. Також в зв'язку з загостреною ситуацією в Україні, що стосується коливань електроенергії і відсутності інтернету під час відключень, досить часто підключитися на урок вчасно є проблематично. Підключитися до генератора займає тривалий час. Стосовно д/з також на початку навчання, у вересні, батьки й діти були повідомлені в Classroom, що завдання є рекомендованими для виконання, а не обов'язковими, так як по перше ситуація в країні не завжди цьому сприяє, а по друге деякі батьки просять більше домашнього завдання для практики дітям удома. Так як знайти "золоту середину" в цьому питанні важко, д/з є РЕКОМЕНДОВАНИМИ, а не обов'язковими (тобто виконувати лише за змогою та бажанням)

Сподіваюсь, що внесла ясність :)
