Students in the district returned from spring break to witness one of the wonders of the universe – a solar eclipse.

At Theodore Roosevelt Elementary School, science and technology teacher Regina D’Orio and Science Director Dan Moy helped students and staff prepare for the eclipse. They found creative ways to help students first model the phenomenon such as using sliding Oreo pieces to demonstrate the stages of the eclipse and using mobiles to study the relationship between the Earth, sun, and moon. Students then headed outside, donning their safety glasses, and accompanied by themed music selected by music teacher Brenda Murphy. One student told Principal Devra Small, “This was the best day of my life!”

At James H. Vernon School, the school’s Environmental Club, led by science teacher Suzanne Gentile and fifth grade teacher Heather Russell, visited all classes to discuss viewing the eclipse. Students then went outside to view it with protective glasses.
“The students were very impressed that they could see it!” said Assistant Principal Anastasia Smith.

At Oyster Bay High School, students had the opportunity to participate in a “Solar Eclipse and Sun Chips” viewing party on the school’s terraza. All students first learned about the eclipse in science class and received glasses to safely view it during the gathering.

AP Lit and Wind Ensemble Students Unite for Collaborative Project

AP Lit and Wind Ensemble Students Unite for Collaborative Project thumbnail256775

APLiterature students in Lydia Brady’s class and wind ensemble students in Matthew Sisia’s class developed the ability to collaborate across disciplines. The collaborative lesson took place in Oyster Bay High School’s cOllaB space and was facilitated over the course of three different school days.

On March 19, theAPLiterature students taught Edith Nesbit’s poem “Age to Youth” to the wind ensemble students. Educating their peers allowed the AP Literature students to enhance their skills in critical analysis and interpretation. It also fostered a deep understanding of literary elements and themes within the poem. On March 21, the classes joined together once again. This time, the wind ensemble performed a piece that they composed which was inspired by the poem. The music students demonstrated their ability to translate literary concepts into musical expression as they showcased their piece to the AP Literature students. On March 26, both groups came together one final time for a Socratic Seminar! This collaborative lesson was a wonderful way to encourage creativity and the application of artistic concepts.
