3:00 PM Grade 6 Geography Bee at Vernon
In an effort to eliminate stigmas and help students reach optimal health and wellness, a new health curriculum that places an increased emphasis on mental health education was implemented this year in schools across New York State.
With stoic faces and some silent tears, 6th and 7th graders in the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District listened to the heart-wrenching story of Ryan Halligan, a 13-year-old boy from Vermont who ultimately took his own life after years of being bullied and cyber-bullied.
In this month's video, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Laura Seinfeld discusses the District's ongoing mission of the 3R's --rigor, relevance and relationships--and looks to the new year as an opportunity to focus on building a kinder school environment for all.
Nearly 30 student-musicians from the Oyster Bay-East Norwich Central School District were selected to play alongside the best musicians countywide. They will perform at the Nassau Music Educators Association All-County Music Festival at Tilles Center for the Performing Arts in Greenvale, Jan. 13 and Jan. 18-20.
