¨What a joy it was to welcome the live culture of “Ballet Hispánico” to the PAC just prior to the Thanksgiving break! Although the event was earmarked for juniors and seniors enrolled in advanced Spanish courses, all high school students and staff were invited to attend. The performance featured this season’s Latinx Immersive Experience for Young People, which features a guided tour through Latin Diaspora that includes music, movement and history.
Breaking news is happening all around us, the challenge for a reporter is to find it, and write about what you witnessed. All fifth-grade students explored the life of a journalist at Lloyd Harbor as part of the Teachers College writing unit for journalism. True to form, teacher and “chief editor” Jillian Franciscovich took her student reporters on a “breaking news” assignment to find features happening on the spot in the hallways of Lloyd Harbor.
Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory DNA Learning Center continues its collaboration with the elementary schools with clever chemical reaction experiments. Although students have been drinking apple juice and nibbling on cheese for years, have they ever wondered “how was it made?” CSH Laboratory educator, Kelly Eames, visited West Side elementary 6th graders not only to answer that question, but to show them how they can make it themselves!
There continued to be so many examples of spreading kindness throughout the district this week during National Kindness week! This #CSHUnites collaboration was a wonderful reminder to witness of so many heartfelt moments just prior to the Thanksgiving break.
So many beautiful examples of kindness were shared in the district throughout National Kindness Week….and it was clear that kindness does not start and stop here. These students role model the gift of kindness, and they showed us the best gift to give back!
At Goosehill, kindness week continued each day with special activities to share. In additional to a spirit day and the creation of kindness notes chain links - classes participated in secretly writing a kindness gram to their classmates. Here in Ms. Riggles class they gathered around to deliver their heartfelt messages. The smiles and surprise reactions were humbling and so precious. It was the best example of “filling up your bucket” and bringing joy to each other with positive, caring words.
Congratulations to the Cold Spring Harbor Speech and Debate Team for their fantastic win at Half Hollow Hills East High School this past Saturday, November 18. Freshman Alex Wenk (pictured far left) won a half-qualification for the New York State Championships in Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
