Learning to be a journalist was the assignment for these 5th graders in Ms. Wetzel’s class. The students had to stick to the theme “Lloyd Harbor Community” choosing topics and interviewing staff ranging from stories about bullying, the lunchroom, bulletin boards, artists of the month, the custodians, security guards, and even the LH Police.
During Superintendent’s Residency Day, Mr. Fenter was pleased to return to his social studies teaching days and engage with 6th graders in Ms. Caputo’s class, currently studying the social class pyramid in ancient Egyptian civilization.

It’s a Promethean Learning World! Some SmartBoards have been replaced with touch screen interactive “Promethean” Boards this year.
