Jump Rope for Heart
Jump Rope for Heart was held at Central Boulevard Elementary School on Tuesday, February 14, 2017. During this school-wide event, each grade level participated at different times throughout the day. Students got to visit different stations such as jump rope, hopscotch, and a trampoline. They also took part in art, library, and music stations. All of the children signed a heart that was part of the Cultivating Kindness initiative and is displayed in our hallway. Together, Central Boulevard raised over $7,500 to benefit the American Heart Association! A heart-pumping time was had by all on this Valentine's Day!

Read to Achieve
Grade 3 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 school students. A tradition for more than a decade, the program included interactive dialogue from many district administrators and the scholar athletes regarding their favorite books and a discussion on why reading is so important on the road to success. The students also got the opportunity afterwards to shoot some hoops with the high school scholar athletes!
Ecology Experts visit the Greentree Foundation
On October 18, 2016, Ms. Austin and Ms. Robb's "Ecology Experts" attended a field trip at the Greentree Foundation. The Greentree Foundation allowed the "Ecology Experts" of Central Boulevard to roam through the woodland trail, visit the Palm Garden and Greenhouse, where gardeners grow many plants from other countries, journey through the Wall Garden to explore the native grasses as well as observe the bug hotel, and conclude the visit with observations of Shelter Rock. The students were complimented on their fine behavior and observations throughout the visit. Special thanks to Mrs. Yale, Mrs. Kemman, and Ms. Badolato for accompanying the students and teachers on the trip. Everyone had a fantastic day! Thanks to the Greentree Foundation for allowing the students to visit!
