It’s always an exciting day when the turtles arrive at Goosehill. First graders can hardly sit still waiting for their very own classroom turtle to be revealed. Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery Educator, Ms. Krissy Forman, teaches both students and teachers how to care for the turtles, tanks, filters, and equipment to keep them happy, warm, and fed properly.
Throughout the district, classrooms are engaging in “morning circle time” as part of the Responsive Classroom professional training. “Kids love it so much, they don’t want to miss it,” shared West Side principal, Ms. Alison Hazut. It’s a time to greet each other, set goals for the day, and to help start the day. At Goosehill, Ms. Comerford’s class stands in a circle and chooses how they would like to greet each other hello in a different language, where nǐ hǎo, ciao, salut, hola, and more are now part of their morning vocabulary.

Each year in October, the Central Parent Council (CPC) proudly recognizes the Board of Education for National School Board Recognition month, an opportunity to raise community awareness and understanding about the crucial role school board members have within a school district. It is a time to say thank you and share appreciation for the hard work, devotion and commitment school board members put to task voluntarily all year long to ensure all students succeed.
