Moving Forward With The Common Core

Much has been written and debated about the merits or pitfalls of the Common Core Learning Standards, but one thing is certain in the New Hyde Park-Garden City Park School District: our teachers and students are moving forward to provide and master the necessary skills in language arts and mathematics, so they are prepared for a rigorous curriculum when they enter New Hyde Park Memorial High School.

 

This year in English language arts, all teachers have been receiving additional training in writers’ workshop and focusing on getting students to organize, plan, focus, revise, edit and publish their writing with a focus on going deeper and supporting their topic sentences with details that are rich, specific and text-based when using printed materials that are both from fictional or informational texts. Students have learned the process of doing “close reads” when faced with challenging and rigorous materials that may be above their instructional level. Teachers have been trained and are implementing instructional techniques for students to use what they know and read in the text to provide them with greater insight, understanding and comprehension in their reading and writing work. Furthermore, students are working in pairs and in teacher writing conferences to expand their thoughts, clarify their messages, and create a more vivid picture of what they want to say. 

 

Common Core aside, New Hyde Park-Garden City Park education continues to raise the bar and challenge our students daily. We are proud of our staff and the efforts and accomplishments of the students
they teach.

Sewanhaka Indians Head football coach George Kasimatis told his team to expect a dogfight in this weeks game against the New Hyde Park Gladiators, and he was right after its 35-21 victory last week. 

 

“All the kids know each other really well, it’s always competitive when we play each other,” he said. 

The Sewanhaka Indians relied heavily on its offense in the first two victories and head coach George Kasimatis relies on one player to set the tone for his group; senior, running back Brenton Mighty. 

 

Mighty is versatile as a running back, as he possesses the ability to run hard between the tackles, lower his shoulder and run into the defender, or run to the outside and break one deep. He also has good hands and is utilized by quarterback Elijah Tracey, as a receiver out of the backfield. 

 

“He makes such a difference in the run game,” said Kasimatis. “Teams have to respect that and it opens up the pass and the possibility for a lot of play action passes.”
