Roosevelt Presents 'Cool the Earth' Program
In celebration of Earth Day, Roosevelt Elementary School presented its 10th Annual Cool the Earth assembly to teach students what they can do to protect the land, air, water and animals of the earth.
Roosevelt educators portrayed a cast of characters, including polar bears in the arctic, sea turtles in the tropics, Mother Nature, Mother Earth, and harmful carbon and methane gases to perform a charming, yet informative play that illustrated how various human habits affect the planet and the steps students can take to protect precious resources and animals.

Seventy-six students in 7th-9th grade were inducted into Oyster Bay High School’s chapter of National Junior Honor Society during a formal ceremony that highlighted the five pillars of the organization and the chapter’s fundraising efforts.
Donning blue gowns, members filed into the high school auditorium and took their seats on stage as families and friends looked on. After a welcome address by President Elisia Gallo, each of the officers and the fundraiding chair took part in a candle-lighting ceremony that highlighted the organization’s five pillars: leadership, citizenship, scholarship, character and service.
