Proactive Superintendent’s Day

The District gathered on Nov. 6 for it’s fall Superintendent’s Conference Day, during which the various staff departments participated in presentations, workshops and activities to continue proactive learning and development as educators.

Staff members from the high school and JFK middle school along with Superintendent of School David Schneider attended morning sessions that focused on dynamic issues, led by Lauren Marra and Romila “Dr. Romie” Mushtaq, MD. Marra, a behaviorist who specializes on the topic of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, presented on proactive discipline approaches with students. Dr. Romie is a renowned neurologist that stressed the importance and techniques of mindfulness in education for both students and faculty. 

The afternoon was a time of collaboration as departments at both secondary schools traveled to the Island Trees School District and met with educators in their corresponding building and subject areas. They had opportunities to share ideas and broaden their instructional practices.

At the elementary level, faculty members from Kramer Lane, Charles Campagne and Central Boulevard broke into grade-specific groups to gain training in STEM and other pertinent topics. Led by district administrators and teachers, the STEM workshop demonstrated assorted grade-specific lessons and activities. The journeys session covered content requested by teachers and also provided time for them to discuss and navigate digital tools.

Other aspects of the day included CPR training for nurses and building monitors and the Hofstra Mental Health Conference, which was attended by guidance counselors and social workers. 

The district thanks Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Michael Spence and all that helped to coordinate and facilitate an educational day for district educators.

Teaching and Learning from Central Boulevard Elementary School's STEM Lab

Students in Ms. Robb and Ms. McGuire's Grade 5 class are currently involved in a hands-on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) unit where they are building structures to help humans survive or prevent damage during natural disasters. The lesson is taking place in the one of three brand new Elementary STEM Lab Classrooms across the district.  Using Lego WeDo 2.0 Kits, students built a flood gate that can be programmed to open and close when the water level reaches a certain height.  In addition, students were tasked with the added challenge of using a motion sensor.  As a follow up to this activity, students will also construct a rescue helicopter that can drop off supplies for people in need of rescue.  The lesson was featured on FiOS 1 News and Newsday Online and can be accessed at the links below.  Special thanks to Ms. Robb, Ms. McGuire, Ms. Marcis, and Ms. Karfinkel for the development of the hands-on lesson and support of their students!
