April News at Hall

by | Apr 13, 2022 | News | 0 comments

Students in our After School Program have been completing exciting activities in our Hall of Science all month long—and we’ve loved having a front-row seat to watch them learn.

Meanwhile, our seniors are enjoying new fitness equipment and exercise lessons provided by incredible community partners.

And we continue to welcome groups of volunteers to serve our neighbors. Thank you for investing in our community and helping us keep making life better for everyone around us.

We are grateful for your partnership and excited to share these updates with you!

Hall of Science Highlights

Students learn about electricity through hands-on demonstrations.

Our new Hall of Science, led by STEM Coordinator Mr. David, gives students the chance to learn about sound, electricity, flight, space, and more. We’re proud to provide access to state-of-the-art tools like the Stellina telescope and PocketLabs that give young people a detailed look at the world around them.

Check out our latest blog post to learn more about recent science lessons.


Students used vacuum formers to make hologram projectors out of a sheet of plastic. The machine heats a thin plastic sheet until it can be stretched and formed, then students can project shapes and designs. Access to this kind of equipment is powerful and inspiring for students in our programs!

Hosting Bridge Academy

We were delighted to host the Bridge Academy Middle School March Madness tournament! Students and staff enjoyed great games of basketball and put on an amazing show for spectators.

We loved watching students and staff play together and participate in some friendly competition!

Dentist Day

In March, we recognized Dentist Day! Providing accessible healthcare is integral to our mission of making life better—and dental care is a key part of that. Thank you to all of the community dentists who share their time, expertise, and resources with our neighbors, creating brighter smiles for all!

Thank You, Bridgeport International Academy!

Here at Hall Neighborhood House we couldn’t do what we do without our amazing volunteers!

Thank you to Bridgeport International Academy for spending a day with us—building new exercise equipment for seniors, designing and facilitating an obstacle course for students, and helping out in the STEM room.

We are so grateful for the generous and joyful support!

Senior Exercise Equipment

We are so excited to have new exercise equipment available for our seniors—and special thanks to our partners at Sacred Heart University for coming to talk to seniors about the importance of exercise for their mental and physical health.
