    Corey’s Promise District-Wide Sports Night

    Oh, what a night! The first annual district-wide “Charity Event” sports night was held on March 9 for students, staff and families. This collaborative effort to bring the schools and community together has been a vision of Superintendent Jill M. Gierasch, and an important Board of Education District Goal. By increasing family and community engagement, it is the hope of administration to develop greater partnerships by offering K-12 special events at programs like the fall Homecoming game half-time and pre-game carnival, and the first district-wide STEAM Night and Parent University Night.

    Let’s Read Together!

    Goosehill Kindergarteners in Ms. Ranaldo’s class anxiously awaited their visiting school mates from Ms. DeRop’s first graders. The older students were very proud to read aloud as they were matched with new friends. Afterward, they asked if the kindergarteners would then share a read aloud back! It was a great exchange of learning, friendship, and confidence boosting – the students loved choosing their books and sharing their reading skills!

    Light Up Your Circuit! STEAM Week at Goosehill

    First grade students were so excited to “Light Up their Circuits” in the Creative Learning Lab with Library Media Specialist, Marissa Urso. Gathered around tables to engineer their very own “light up greeting card” by building their own circuit, the students were wide-eyed at the wonder of their creations! They learned LED stands for Light Emitting Diodes that glow when powered, and they watched their LED stickers do just that! Most made a Valentine card, others rendered creative designs, and kids and parents alike were fascinated in this mini-challenge of designing their very own STEAM activity!
