Performing for Village

The East Rockaway Music department participated in this year's village tree lighting. The Elementary Chorus, Senior High Jazz Band and Senior High Chorus all performed for the crowd. Directors, Mrs. Jessica Salaway, , Mr. Pete Ceglio and Mrs. Seanna Silver were proud to have their groups perform along side many others from the community. The cold temperatures were no match for the warm holiday spirit of the event.

Shoes of Empathy

Second-grade students at Centre Avenue School loved reading Stand in My Shoes. This book was selected by the Positive School Culture Committee as our school book of the month. This book taught them about empathy. Then the students wrote about what bothers their family members and friends and what they can do to show empathy.

Treats for Troops

The K-Kids at Centre Avenue recently organized a candy drive for Treats for Troops. Centre families donated Halloween candy and K-Kids wrote letters to thank those brave men and women serving the country. Soldiers at Fort Drum in upstate, New York, took pictures of themselves posing with the boxes of treats and student letters.

Students Perform Word Surgery

The students in Mrs. Rottkamp's second-grade class at Centre Avenue School completed a "text feature surgery." After reading their Scholastic News, the students identified the text features they found and then cut and glued the text features in the correct places. Second-graders finally completed a "post-op report" by identifying the purpose of the text features.

Town Clerk Sylvia Cabana recently visited ENL students in grades 3-8. Ms. Cabana presented her "Read and Relax" program where students listened to and discussed the story Tomás and the Library Lady. Following the bilingual read aloud students discussed the importance of hard work and perseverance. Students also learned about the many important services provided by the Town Clerk's office along with learning about Ms. Cabana's family history which many of the students could relate to.
