With a pilot program lending iPads to all middle schoolers, Friends Academy is exploring the leading edge of education technology, but the grand old technology of ink on paper took center stage at the school’s annual Book Fair, a tradition since 1990, that ran through May 1.
By all accounts it was a smashing success—record-smashing, that is, with the bake sale raking in nearly twice its usual take. The final tally for the fair itself was not available as of press time.
“We do raise a lot of money for the libraries, but it’s not about the numbers,” said Judith James, library director at Friends. “It’s to promote kids loving books. We want them to have some physical experience with books. There’s something different about the tangible book on the table.”
Glen Cove High School senior Danny Casale has won another major media art show. This time, Casale took first place in the annual LIU Post Student Film/Video Festival, a show he also won last year when fellow classmate Shalyn Cabaroy took second place.
“Danny continues to help show that Glen Cove High School and GCTV is a force to reckon with in the Educational Television Production business,” said Chris Barry, media communications teacher. “Our name is consistently on top. I’m so proud of him. To my recollection, I don’t
recall any student winning this festival back-to-back and I’ve been going with our students for at least 10 years now.”
