Visual Art Visitor Demonstrates Zombie Make-Upping
It is Halloween time, and Northeast Middle is not spared today, October 30, 2013 from being invaded: At least not for real, but by an artist, Ms. Siobhan Beckett who demonstrated how to create a zombie— by make-up. Fortunately, the first try was volunteered by none others, but by Principal Baldwin herself, sacrificing her day becoming a zombie once in her lifetime. Students watched to their amazement and horror as artist Siobhan explained the ingredients, the real stuff not from fiction, perhaps call it play-blood and horrifying mess, as she started painting Principal Baldwin’s face. Somehow, it took time to transform one, yet without the dreaded fear afterwards— as everyone witnessing the ritual of zombie making finally done, and terminated through a group-photo pose.
Invited by Ms. Megan White as guest into her Art class, Ms. Siobhan Beckett is a local Baltimore Actor, Singer, and Special Effects Make-Up Artist. She currently works as a standardized patient and moulage Special Effects artist for shock trauma medical training with The University of Maryland Medical Center as well as performs in local Baltimore theatres and other freelance positions.

Northeast Middle School Teachers and Staff Attend "Capturing Kids' Hearts"
Three days of professional training and self-examination happened to be the underlying theme of "Capturing Kids' Hearts" with the Flippen Group through facilitator Sean. It took place at Huber Memorial Church last October 17-19, 2013. Teachers and staff are taught advanced ways on how to handle students' behavior in school and in the classroom through effective approaches defined by E.X.C.E.L. methodology and guided questioning. To effectively implement the program, attendees are told to have a positive attitude and outlook in their everyday experiences. Further, the program emphasizes the creation of a social contract to be the foremost foundation governing all actions in the classroom or in the school.
