On Tuesday, December 6th, Madison Brass, Sophie Cohen, Jenna Schetty, and Veronica Walkin were invited to the General Meeting at the Suffolk County Legislature where they were presented with proclamations regarding their publication in the National Center for Biotechnology Information Database that involved mosquito DNA sequencing.
How exactly do our organs work? That is the question Ventriloquist, Steve Petra, answers through his curriculum-based performances at school assemblies. The Cultural Arts Committee has been bringing “Petra Puppets” to Lloyd Harbor School for years where kids discover and learn about math, reading or science under the spell of Puppets and a whole lot of fun!
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!
Let the festivities begin! The Lloyd Harbor school-wide celebration was a joyous occasion before school let out for the Thanksgiving holiday. The entire student body donned “in a sea of blue shirts” danced their way into the gymnasium to enjoy music, cheerleaders, “Blue Ribbon Band” performances, speeches and a very special video tribute – all to celebrate the pride shared throughout the building for their National Blue Ribbon status! Principal Massimo was beaming with pride as she expressed her appreciation to everyone for this highly prestigious and coveted recognition.
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.
French students wrote nearly 200 "Thank You" notes to staff members at the Cold Spring Harbor Jr./Sr. High School. This act of kindness and appreciation was initiated by the French Club and continued with all French students in grades 7-12 participating. Madame Koob and Monsieur Montanaro gave students an opportunity to show their thankfulness for all the efforts made by teachers, guidance counselors, security guards, and others.
