Creative Constructions

Creative Constructions Photo

First-grade students in Ms. Schmidt's class at Kramer Lane used their creativity and problem-solving skills to create a perch for their new friend Harry the Pom Pom. After discussing how buildings are constructed and understanding that the base of a structure is key to holding it up, students were then given specific materials in which to construct their own perch which would hold Harry and allow him to see what is happening in their classroom. This STEM activity allowed for students to plan, revise and test as they built the perfect perch.

All-County Art Show

Congratulations to all the students in grades K-12 from all five Bethpage Schools who had their work displayed at the Annual All-County Art Exhibition!  The level of the work displayed was impressive!  Thanks to all the teachers involved and to Ms. Cardo who is the Co-Chair of the entire event!

Seuss Meets STEM

seuss

In honor of Read Day and Dr. Seuss’ birthday, third-graders at Kramer Lane worked on STEM-themed activities that related to the famous author’s books. Stations were setup to include “Horton Hatches the Egg,” where students created a nest to protect an egg; “Yertle the Turtle,” where students built a teetering turtle tower; and “Oh, the Places You’ll Go!,” which allowed students to make hot air balloons. Students enjoyed the unique activities to honor the special day.

Penguin Parents

Penguin Parents
First-grade students in Mrs. Seewald, Ms. Schmidt and Ms. Meehan's classes at Kramer Lane served as penguin parents for the day. Each child brought in a hard boiled egg and designed a carrier which would keep their egg free of cracks. The children were responsible for carrying their egg everywhere as they went throughout the day with the hopes of not cracking it. The objective of this experiment was for the children to experience the difficult task a penguin has when trying to keep their egg safe and warm in the harshest of weather. Thankfully, most students were successful in maintaining their "crack free" eggs.

Fashion Show

Faculty, staff and students came from around the district for the Annual Fashion Show that combines haute couture with fundraising for bully prevention activities.  Faculty and staff looked pretty awesome dressed in the latest designs and students performed musical numbers.  A special appearance from our friend Sal Valentinetti was a highlight!

Thanks to everyone who participated and to Mrs. Kennedy, Mrs. Glassman, Mrs. Marcucci and Mrs. Hayes for arranging the evening!

Read to Achieve

Third-grade students throughout the district gathered at Bethpage High School to participate in a pep rally intended to bolster their interest in reading and reiterate its importance in their future academic careers, as well as create a mentorship between high school scholar-athletes and elementary schoolers. A tradition for more than a decade, the program included interactive dialogue from many district administrators regarding their favorite books and discussion on why reading is so important on the road to success.

Kramer Lane fourth graders wrote some creative "porquoi?" stories and then read them to listeners who were very interested in how they all turned out!  Great job to all the students and teachers!

21st Century students spent a beautiful afternoon at the Sands Point Preserve.  They were able to tour Hempstead House, see Castle Gould and then walk the grounds with a staff biologist!  It was all terrific!  Thanks to staff members Leah and Eric for being our guides.
