It was an unforgettable night of wonder, exploration and engagement, with the perfect blend of STEAM combined with a deep dive into the Humanities! In fact, this districtwide K-8 initiative offered so many exciting booths and activities to navigate – that each family received a map to begin their quest. It was a little like Dorothy following the yellow brick road, at every turn you didn’t know what would jump out at you next?
Principal Massimo and the student council kicked off a Valentine Celebration of heartfelt wishes from the students to the staff as a farewell sendoff before the winter break. By the look of excitement on the student’s faces, they certainly enjoyed the “act of spreading kindness” perhaps more than the teachers upon receiving these giant handcrafted Valentine’s Day cards!
The annual West Side Talent show kicked off pre-game Superbowl performances with a lineup of talent that delighted the crowd! There were bands, singing, dancing, hula-hoops, musical numbers on guitars, violin, piano and more. The dance numbers had the crowd lighting up their cell phones with raised arms to cheer on their classmates.
Goosehill is always bustling with excitement on the 100th Day of school! Kindergartners can barely contain their excitement to sing songs that they have practiced for weeks with music teacher Donna Zarrabi; what a show they put on! Parents and families were invited to join in on the fun at the morning assembly and then they were in for a treat as their children strutted the red carpet for a 100-Day tee shirt fashion show!
During the month of February, #CSH Unites spearheaded the project “PS I Love You Day” which was celebrated on February 9. This special day was created by Brooke and Jamie DePalma, West Islip graduates, who lost their father to suicide in 2010 while both were students at West Islip High School. PS I Love You Day started as a local initiative and has grown to include schools all over Long Island, New York state, and the country.
The CSH High School Spanish club hosted a churro & chocolate sale after school! The club members made little bags with bite-sized pieces of churros. Each churro was stuffed with creamy dulce de leche(caramel). Many students enjoyed these delicious treats on their way to their after-school activities! Señora Coniglio & Señora Segura are so proud of the students for setting up this special Valentine’s Day themed event for the school!
Ricitos de Oro los Tres Ositos aka the Spanish production of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” took place in Senora Tassani’s 5th grade Spanish classes at West Side and Lloyd Harbor. Earlier this year, students created murals for each scene of the play in art class with Ms. Andria McLaughlin. Students then worked in learning stations to prepare for their performance recording their plays in front of a green screen at their respective schools.
Thank you to our talented art students at the Jr./Sr. High School for this wonderful VALENTINE'S DAY display in the Gottshalk Gallery!
