Students at Kramer Lane Elementary School in Bethpage shared the gift of giving this holiday season.

Many of the students’ families donated clothing and toys to Kramer Lane families in need. Teachers, parents and staff members were given the opportunity to pull a snowflake from the Holiday Giving Tree and purchase the specific gift listed on the snowflake for a student at Kramer Lane.

Third graders throughout Kramer Lane Elementary School in Bethpage designed boats in the STEM Lab during the week of Jan. 10.

Kramer Lane’s young engineers learned about buoyancy, density and gravity with foil paper, pennies and straws. Students used their creative tools to test the boats to see if they would sink or float. Teams competed against each other to see which boat would hold the most mass.
