2022 U.S. Physics Olympiad Congratulations to William Wei, who received an Honorable Mention in the Semi-Finalist Medal Rankings of the 2022 U.S. Physics Olympiad! William took two nationally ranked tests; the F=ma exam in February, and the USAPhO exam in April, where he competed with students all over the country. Thank you to Director of STEM, Kimberly Libertini and teachers Matt Sneider and Jim Hardy for supporting William’s mathematical aptitude to the science of Physics. Ms. Libertini shared, “We are all very proud of William’s success!”
Over the weekend of May 20 the West Side School Theater Association (WSSTA) brought down the house with the performance of Shrek Jr, The Musical... WOW! Everyone’s favorite Ogre, his best pal donkey, and all the fairytale creatures filled the “swamp” on stage, singing, dancing, and delivering humor that literally had you belly laughing! What a show!
What a beautiful way to celebrate Lloyd Harbor School’s commitment to teamwork and a year of student reflection about “Hopes and Dreams.” This year the Lloyd Harbor School Improvement Team, made up of parents and faculty, worked collaboratively to bring the school community together after the challenges of the pandemic. The tree planting project was born out of April’s monthly read, Tony Hillery’s picture book Harlem Grown, and monthly theme of teamwork.
Lloyd Harbor fifth graders thanked their lucky stars this month as they went on their first field trip in nearly two years! The students were thrilled to visit the Vanderbilt Planetarium. The planetarium show called "Stars" served as an extension to the 5th Grade Earth, Space, and Stars studies as part of our science curriculum.
West Side and Lloyd Harbor 4th graders became Colonials for the day at Old Bethpage Village Restoration on May 17. This was the highlight of their unit of study on Colonial Day life which also includes elementary school field trips to the Lloyd Manor House. Students learn about Colonial children’s chores and the games they played, various jobs of Colonials who learned trades such as a silversmith, shoemaker, miller, ship building, cross stitching, barn building, dress and hat making, and so many more.
