Luck of the Leprechaun Trap

A creative project at Central Boulevard Elementary School brought grade levels together as Debra Lange and Linda DeMaria’s first-grade class collaborated with Barbara Cataldi’s fourth-graders to engineer a leprechaun trap using recycled materials.

Working in teams, the students drafted blueprints of their designs and identified which materials they would use to trap the cunning character of Irish folklore. To build their contraptions, they brought in materials from home such as cereal boxes, tissue boxes and shoeboxes.
  
After drawing up their plans, the teams constructed the traps out of their everyday items, adding decorative touches with glitter, stickers, construction paper and pipe cleaners. They presented their devices to their peers, explaining how the levers, axles and doors would capture the leprechaun. Many projects included gold coins to lure the Irish fairy into the trap.

Our Day at the Opera!

The students were met by Education Department and trip organizer, Dan Marshall and two opera house tour guides.

The students, accompanied by their teacher chaperones (Mrs. McGrath, Ms. Kovacs, Ms. Sinisi, and Mr. Wibben) were divided into two groups; elementary students and middle/high school students, and taken on a tour of this huge facility. They were able to view a few minutes of a rehearsal happening on the huge stage of the 3,800 seat opera house and learned about the almost perfect acoustical properties of the house. They also saw the beautiful crystal chandeliers that hang in the lobby and theater, which were a gift from the Australian government for our country's assistance in World War II. They were then taken by elevator to several different floors underground, where they observed the costume shop, wig-makers, special effects machinery, scenery and lighting production, as well as props and paining. In addition, we visited rehearsal studios and learned about the children's chorus and their assigned dressing rooms. They also loved seeing the doors and the animals come through, when used in productions!

Our guides were very knowledgeable and answered many questions.  As we passed through the various underground tunnels, we even caught a glimpse of internationally known opera star Placido Domingo in a rehearsal. At the conclusion of our tour, we were taken into The Belmont Room, where we met 2004 Bethpage High School graduate Matt Rubin, the current assistant lighting director at the Met. He hold us about his path to his current career and how he often did work in technology during his high school years in Bethpage. A graduate of Hofstra University, he has traveled extensively and worked his way up to his current position. The students and teachers were able to ask him questions and pose for photographs.

Following a delicious lunch in the Lincoln Square area, the students boarded the bus for the trip home filled with information about this American Arts institution and looking forward to future opera experiences!

Maritime Festival

If you ever plan on putting out grass seed wait until the Maritime festival dates are announced, you'll be sure to have rain! Despite the weather the Maritime Festival docked at Bethpage High School last week. The Forensic Science students put mysteries aside to change gears and become instructors in Marine Science. It was an opportunity for many high school seniors to gain experience as teachers. They did a phenomenal job educating all the district's third graders about the sea life found around our beautiful island. Mr. Hack (aka SCUBA Steve) amazed the visitors in our pool, while Mrs. Rankin and her students taught the third graders all about plankton and the marine food web. A highlight of the day was a 34" stripped bass caught by Mr. Carroll. Hats off to all the high school custodial and maintenance staff that help to make this yearly event such a success.

Homeland Security Trip

On Wednesday, February 8, 2012, Mrs. Cohen’s 5th grade class from Central Boulevard Elementary School, visited the Morrelly Homeland Security Building, in Bethpage.

Mr. Symons, a lawyer who has had a genuine interest in meteorology for a very long time, welcomed us to Homeland Security with the purpose of discussing the topic of weather and showing us the Doppler radar computer screen, but we learned so much more!

First, we sat in a very large conference room with four huge computer screens displayed on the walls. Mr. Symons held an interesting discussion with the children about the formation of thunderstorms and hurricanes, and the seasons and places in the world they occur.

Next, Mr. Symons showed us a video clip of a hurricane in action with a visual of the damage this hurricane caused.

Mr. Robert Mangano then explained his work in safety management and evacuation procedures. He handed out an informative pamphlet explaining the importance of storm preparation – be ready at all times, do not wait until the last moment because supplies in the stores will be limited.

Police Officer Horn was then introduced. He explained his work with the canine and mounted patrol units. The dogs are used to chase and capture bad people and horses are used for crowd control situations. He passed around a bullet proof vest for the children to view, touch, and lift. They were surprised at how heavy the bullet proof vest really was!

Mr. Beebe gave us a mini tour of parts of the building we were permitted to see. He took us through double locked doors. The first set of doors must be closed before the second door is able to be unlocked. He showed us an alarm pad in which a code is punched in on a keypad, and hand identification is needed before entering a restricted area.

Once inside the computer room, the computer tech logged onto the Central Boulevard Elementary School security cameras. The children were able to see the outside perimeter of the school building, including the playground, field, and parking lot!

We all learned a lot about what the different federal Homeland Security departments do to help keep Americans safe, and were amazed by it all!

Thank you Mr. Symons, for arranging this special visit for us!
