The School District continues its long standing relationship with our neighbors at the Cold Spring Harbor Fish Hatchery & Aquarium, including field trips to visit the turtles and warm water fish and amphibian life. As part of Goosehill’s science curriculum, each first-grade class is delivered their very own turtle in the fall provided by the Fish Hatchery each . . .
In physical education and art classes, students learned about pool safety. Ms. McLaughlin and Mr. Malone taught lessons about water safety and the children played games reinforcing the concepts in the gym. They created posters in art class representing safety tips including: never go in a pool . . .
These Kindergarten students were so proud to show their abstract art sculptures made out of wood and pipe cleaners. They demonstrate innovation by organizing pieces of wood and rearranging the pieces to create their own 3D abstract! The kids agreed they look like a city from the future!
The students in Ms. DeRop's class were so excited to share their knowledge! Students were challenged to research a subject they love. They read books about the moon, pandas, grizzly bears, skunks, owls, tadpoles, elephants and even hermit crabs. Did you know that skunks can spray 10 feet, and they have stripes and spots? Baby owls are called . . .
Ms. Ranaldo and her students love circle time reading! This oversized book titled Quiet in the Library, by Wendy Evans, captured the imagination and inquiry of the kids. The children played animal guessing games, and at the end of the day acted out their favorite animals. It's always fun to share a book!
The HERO theme has had a major impact on Goosehill students all year long, as students are recognized for their acts of Honesty, Empathy, Respect, and Open-heartedness. “Super-Hero Institute Day” was a chance for students to understand how those all around us are helping the . . .
Mrs. Herschlein shared, “Thank you to the GPFA Green and Earth Day Committee volunteers, especially the chairs, Mrs. Silver and Mrs. Wohlferd, for a great celebration of Earth Day! The kindergarten students loved the Earth Day relay races and the first graders were so proud of how they brightened our school grounds with the planting of beautiful flowers. I hope your family enjoys planting the seeds the GPFA purchased for every child.”
The annual CSH Laboratory Science Fair for Goosehill is truly a family favorite and one event you don’t want to miss! As part of our school district’s partnership with the Laboratory, first graders participated in six exciting science activities, on a rotating basis taught by the scientists. They explored the properties of a “seaweed surprise” . . .
