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.
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.
Students in the SADD/SWWATAV club had their annual pizza/poster night. Students created posters to support the Great American Smoke Out campaign, a day dedicated to helping others quit smoking. Students hung these posters around the high school to encourage others to not smoke/vape. Thank you to these dedicated students for being role models to others through education and example of the dangers of smoking/vaping.
Cold Spring Harbor School District music educators and administration attended the annual “Honor Your Administrator’s Night” hosted by NMEA (Nassau Music Educators Association) on November 9 at The Milleridge Inn. The mission of the NMEA is to enrich school music programs by nurturing student musicianship and empowering members through collaboration and professional development.
Sharing their wisdom, sacrifice and service with the next generation. These emotional experiences for those with so little knowledge of war, are a heartfelt tribute brought to the Jr./Sr. High School classes each year. These Heroes shared stories and answered numerous questions about their time in the service. Students, staff and administration were so grateful to honor these men and women and thank them personally.

Several cutting-edge molecular biology techniques were used to purify, amplify and sequence the DNA.
