Third Graders Create Interactive Wax Museum
Where was one able to see Albert Einstein, Babe Ruth, Taylor Swift and Sacagawea all in one place? At the James H. Vernon School Third Grade Wax Museum!
These and numerous other “wax figures” came to life in third grade classrooms when visitors pushed a red “start’ button located next to them, prompting them to orate a brief biographical speech. The fun, interactive event was a culminating activity for students and their families after completing a unit on Reading and Writing.
OBHS Students are Champions of Character
In one of the most inspiring events of the school year, 20 Oyster Bay High School students were recognized by faculty and staff members for exemplary character — making them outstanding role models for their peers — during the fourth annual Breakfast of Champions Character Recognition Program, May 22.
Held in the high school library, the event had some staff members choked up and pausing to compose themselves as they shared inspiring words about the students they nominated with faculty and family members.
