SING 2016

 The Port Richmond High School 2015 SING performances were held on November 20th and 21st. The Silverstein Trophy was awarded to the Junmen for their performance of The 5G Grant. The show was written and directed by Kaitlynn Gonzalez. The 5G Grant is about Port Richmond’s Glee Club going to a competition to win a 5G grant. The pressure is on because if they lose the competition against Curtis High School the club gets shut down and the football team gets the money. During the glee club rehearsal a football player gets the setlist from a girl in the club and he gives them to the other school to use in the competition. Port Richmond’s glee club ends up coming up with another setlist and winning the competition. “I’m so happy we won, we all put so much work into the show,” said Gonzalez. The Senmore show,Couples Therapy, is a spin off of a reality television show. Their show is about a few couples who attend couples therapy to have their problems solved. The Senmore show was written by Sydney Russell and directed by Alphie Davis, Eric Greco and Irving Valasquez.

Culinary Thanksgiving Feast

The Culinary Arts Academy held their annual Thanksgiving Feast for the students. The Food was prepared by nearly all the culinary classes, and was served by students that volunteered to help out rather than eat the food themselves. At the event, they served cornbread, stuffing, mashed potatoes, string beans with almonds, carrots, sweet potato cubes, apple pie, pumpkin pie, and of course, turkey. Jessica Gottlieb, culinary student, helped make the sweet potatoes. “The sweet potatoes were fun to make, my hands were covered in sugar. Mr. Ryan outdid himself again this year for the event.” said Gottlieb. Valfred Martinez really loved the food and the mashed potatoes were his favorite. Mr. Marra said the apple pie was delicious and the stuffing, cornbread, mac and cheese were good. Mr. and Mrs. Santos said they loved the apple pie with the great filling. The culinary students and teachers both enjoyed being together at the event.

Thursday, June 11, 2015


     On Friday, June 5, Port Richmond’s seniors attended the night they were all waiting for, their senior prom at the Hilton Garden Inn. With a Masquerade theme, seniors arrived wearing their unique masks with their prom dresses and tuxedos.  Everyone arrived at the Hilton at around 6:45-7 p.m. The Prom actually started when the seniors were brought into the Nicotra’s Ballroom. At around 8 p.m., the seniors danced and ate the dinner of their choice. Along with the dancing and the food, seniors took a lot of pictures; with their phones and/or by professional photographers. The night ended at midnight, but the memory of the night will last forever.

On the way there Julia Rodriquez played her ukulele while other students sang along with her.  On their overnight trip they were able to go site seeing on a speed boat where members of marching band were singing and dancing to music. After walking around the inner harbor they went to the Hard Rock CafĂ© where they were able to enjoy a great meal and buy souvenirs. Students also attend the Camden Yards Stadium where they watched the Baltimore Orioles play against the Los Angeles Angels. After a long, exciting day students went to the hotel where they hung out with their friends. The following day they drove to Six Flags where they performed several songs and then spent the day going on rides and playing games. Everyone had a great time!
