Queens Courier - June 24, 2010Rebounding Academically By Steve Mosco
When JeSen DeChalus failed a regents exam last January, he thought the best course of action would be to quit basketball
and focus entirely on school. However, before making his decision final, DeChalus' coach convinced him to play one more game. "That day, I ended up having my best game and scoring the most points I have ever scored," said DeChalus. "I learned that sports can be a great outlet and I also learned not to make decisions too quickly." To read more, click here.

The Lowell High School is very proud to announce that Junior David Hancock of Forest Hills, NY, has been selected a recipient of the Queens Council on the Arts "High School to Art School" (HS2AS) visual arts portfolio development program. David competed in a highly competitive selection process among many other Queens public and private high schools for a select spot in this top quality arts training program. The grant-funded high school program is offered by the Queens Council on the Arts to support a new generation of young artists, curators, designers, and historians as they prepare for their careers in the arts. The program, held on Saturdays, began February 27 and runs through May 22, 2010 at the Queens Museum of Art. David will have the opportunity to work with invited artists; visit artists’ studios, museums, and galleries to visually experience the ideas learned in the classroom and work on his portfolio (in many media) as he prepares to apply for college.
