Library Maker Space Reimagined

Students in Grades 3-5 at Central Boulevard Elementary School made creative projects in a modified Library Maker Space.  Ms. Tracy assembled maker space kits with materials from origami projects, paper snowflakes, and several types of bookmarks. She distributed them to in-person learners during Library class and mailed kits home to remote learners. Students were able to complete additional projects during indoor recess by following instructions in Ms. Tracy's Google Classroom.

2020 Hour of Code

On Friday, December 18, 2020, Grade 3-5 students from Central Boulevard Elementary School, Charles Campagne Elementary School, and Kramer Lane Elementary School participated in Bethpage Schools FIFTH Annual Hour of Code Event.  In the days leading up to the event, students learned about what computers do, sequencing, and debugging. 

During the Hour of Code Event, students completed coding challenges from Code Monkeys: Coding Adventure with the support of Mr. Schneider, Mr. Titolo, and Mr. Choi, who joined each classroom through the live broadcast from the Bethpage High School Television Studio.  Mr. Schneider and Mr. Choi answered some questions over the broadcast.  At the conclusion of the event, each student was provided with a certificate of completion.

Special thanks to Mr. Furrey, Mrs. DiFiglia, and Mrs. McCarthy and all of the teachers for making time for their students to participate in the Fifth Annual Hour of Code Event and get a taste of computer science!  We also want to acknowledge the district's IT Department for engineering the Hour of Code broadcast.

Thoughtful Thursday

For the month of October. Central Boulevard Elementary School students and teachers wanted to remind one another that they are special just the way they are!

Physically Distanced, Socially Connected

Central Boulevard Elementary School kicked off another year of "Thoughtful Thursdays". Every month, students are asked to focus on acts of kindness that support each other and our school community.  This month, Central Boulevard wanted to show that although we cannot be as connected as in the past, we are still one community. Each student created a link that is part of a chain link in the Central Boulevard lobby to symbolize that we are Physically Distant, but Socially Connected.

March Mammal Madness in Bethpage

Untitled_design_(44).png thumbnail182235

Schools throughout the Bethpage School District recently participated in March Mammal Madness, an annual tournament of simulated competition among animals that uses scientific literature to predict likely outcomes of the battle. The nationwide project was developed by mammalian biologist and professor Dr. Katie Hinde in 2013 and since has grown to include thousands of students from grades K-12.

Bethpage High School science teacher Susan Sciglibaglio introduced the project as a fun way to highlight and emphasize the importance of sustaining biodiversity, which is the overarching theme of her AP environmental science classes. The activity is tied to curriculum units on evolution, habitats, attributes and adaptations and participants can make their picks from student-generated research posted in the classroom.

Mrs. Sciglibaglio, along with science teacher Tess Strauch, set up a Google classroom for participants to submit their picks. They then went on to recruit teachers from other schools in the district to participate. As a result, classes at Bethpage High School, John F. Kennedy Middle School and Central Boulevard Elementary School have opened the tournament to almost 400 students.

In each school, large brackets are set up in the hallways to track the competitions and the winners. The battles take place on designated evenings and video recaps are posted on YouTube the next day. The classes watch the recaps together in person and discuss the outcomes as it pertains to their science units.

100 Days of Learning in Bethpage

Students participated in a variety of 100-day themed activities, such as dressing up as 100 year olds, constructing a 100-link chain, creating t-shirts with the 100-day theme and many others. Thank you to all involved to make this celebration of 100 days of learning so special.

Students Megan Rocco’s third grade science class at Central Boulevard Elementary School studied the effects of wolf repopulation in national and state parks.

The students made models of Yellowstone National Park before and after the introduction of wolves, concluding that reintroducing them supported tree and grass growth, reinforced the riverbanks and supported the food web. They then used this model to determine if reintroducing wolves to the New York State Adirondack Park would foster more interdependent relationships in its ecosystem.

CBS and KL Sends Valentines to Veterans
