Second-grade classes at Glen Head School recently had a Community Celebration where each child became a member of their community including a fireman, policeman, school teacher, doctor, train conductor, and postal worker just to name a few. As part of the celebration, the students sang and acted in their own version of “Who are the People in Your Neighborhood.” Additionally, they built mini towns in their classrooms and shared comprehensive written reports with their families.
Thanks to the sustained commitment of the Deasy Elementary School community, the Glen Cove school’s Healthy Lifestyles Initiative has received an enormous boost with the addition of lunchroom salad bars. The school will periodically introduce children to new nutritious and delicious lunchtime meals.
Deasy’s inaugural salad bar meal was a smash hit, where students enjoyed lettuce, corn, chick peas, tomatoes, peppers, mushrooms and cheese...with a little pita.
Last month, North Shore held its second annual Acoustic Café in the high school cafeteria. The show featured 13 different acts, plus a finale that incorporated all of the performers. Additionally, photography students displayed their work, and the Marche Coffee Bar was open all night. The evening was a real steal for only $3.
Landing Elementary School student Anthony Guillen, a fifth-grader from Glen Cove, competed Sunday, Feb. 10 at the third annual Hofstra Long Island Regional Scripps Spelling Bee.
Like many other students, he was nervous before the spelling began, but he braved the stage with confidence. During the first round, he spelled the word cosmos; however, he was knocked out of the challenge when the words became very difficult.
At the North Shore Board of Education/town meeting held last month, Superintendent Dr. Edward Melnick presented the initial 2014-15 budget for the North Shore School District.
He outlined the budget goals for the next school year, and clarified that trustees and administration would maintain a budget that is responsive to current economic pressure and remains within the permissible tax levy limit; resources in the budget would be reallocated to fund initiatives aligned with the district’s vision and mission (e.g. IB Program and World Language Program); and the district will work collaboratively with the community in the preparation of the budget.
