Sochi Olympics Come To Farmingdale

Northside Elementary School students celebrated the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, with their own weeklong olympics. 

 

Throughout the week, Northside students got to experience the games through creative modified events that emphasized teamwork and physical skills such as running, jumping, muscular endurance and hand-eye coordination. 

 

Students also learned about the history of the Olympic games and how it symbolizes unity and friendly competition amongst different regions of the world. Some of the events that students participated in, include: Bean Bag Curling, Scooter Hockey, Scooter Bobsled, Team Skiing, the Northside Torch Relay, and the Springboard Ski Jump. Younger students even got to create their own medals to take home. The event kept students moving and also created a lot of interest in different types of winter activities. The Winter Olympic Games only come around every four years, and after the winter we have had, it was a great tool to encourage children to embrace the winter season and get out and enjoy the snow.

After spotting an abandoned cemetery at the corner of Grant Avenue and Rose Street in the heart of downtown Farmingdale, resident Vicki Gruber became inspired to trace the lineage of the Van Cott family—some of the earliest settlers in the Farmingdale community. Gruber, a corporate and securities attorney, said that after approaching the village about the history of the cemetery, she took it upon herself to do the research. Compiling three or four years worth of newfound information, Gruber discovered that each of the 16 plots in the cemetery are direct descendants of Claes Cornelissen Van Cats, a Dutch settler and firm believer in democracy, home rule and civil liberty. 

Farmingdale village officials will be holding a public hearing on Dec. 1, to reexamine school speed zones throughout the village, in order to establish a consistent school speed zone limit.
