    Chemical Reactions! Making Apple Juice and Cheese

    Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory DNA Learning Center continues its collaboration with the elementary schools with clever chemical reaction experiments. Students have been drinking apple juice and nibbling on cheese for years, but they rarely wonder “how was it made?” CSHL educator, Kelly Eames, visited Lloyd Harbor’s 6th graders in Mr. Craine’s class not only to answer that question, but to show them how they can make it themselves!

    Sharing Gratitude! Celebrating School Related Professionals

    Thanksgiving is a time to reflect upon gratitude, and spread kindness to those we care about. November is National Gratitude Month; the word “gratitude” is derived from the Latin word “gratia” which means gratefulness or thankfulness, and a way to acknowledge the good things in life. During the month of November, classrooms were busy sharing notes of thanks to Veterans and staff members spreading kindness and positive messages.

    District Food Drives

    Throughout the CSH School District, each building was instrumental in helping so many in need this Thanksgiving season. There have been winter coat drives, and food drives for local charitable organizations with the help of student council/student government and various school clubs. Thank you to staff, students and community members for your generosity for those less fortunate. A special thanks to former Board of Education member, Ingrid Wright, for pick ups and deliveries to the Helping Hands Rescue Mission and coordinating these efforts along with Health Education teacher, Karen Uhl-Smith.

    Little Mermaid Jr. Lloyd Harbor Musical

    The Lloyd Harbor Theater Arts production of “The Little Mermaid, Jr.” can best be described in one word…WOW! This magical journey “Under the Sea” took place on November 16-17 to packed houses and standing ovations. The stage was transformed into an ocean of sea creatures, lagoons, sailing ships and of course the darkest depths of Ursula’s Lair. The crowd sang along with their favorite characters like Sebastian and Ariel to Disney favorites, “Kiss the Girl,” “Part of Your World,” and “She’s In Love.”
