There continued to be so many examples of spreading kindness throughout the district this week during National Kindness week! This #CSHUnites collaboration was a wonderful reminder to witness of so many heartfelt moments just prior to the Thanksgiving break.
So many beautiful examples of kindness were shared in the district throughout National Kindness Week….and it was clear that kindness does not start and stop here. These students role model the gift of kindness, and they showed us the best gift to give back!
At Goosehill, kindness week continued each day with special activities to share. In additional to a spirit day and the creation of kindness notes chain links - classes participated in secretly writing a kindness gram to their classmates. Here in Ms. Riggles class they gathered around to deliver their heartfelt messages. The smiles and surprise reactions were humbling and so precious. It was the best example of “filling up your bucket” and bringing joy to each other with positive, caring words.
Congratulations to the Cold Spring Harbor Speech and Debate Team for their fantastic win at Half Hollow Hills East High School this past Saturday, November 18. Freshman Alex Wenk (pictured far left) won a half-qualification for the New York State Championships in Lincoln-Douglas Debate.
And it’s always an adventure in the Creative Learning Lab (CLL) with Ms. Diehl when it comes to learning coding with KidOYO. Students work on complex problem solving, critical thinking and creativity to complete challenges and earn badges with KidOYO while progressing though block coding, sprite editors, maze code, and into python, html, java and beyond. In basic terms, coding is problem solving.
Well, that’s a wrap for the cast and crew of Peter Pan, Jr. in Never Never Land. After two sold out performances, everyone felt the sprinkle of pixie dust and were flying high with the emotions after this spectacular show! The musical wowed the crowd at the Performing Arts Center on November 16-17 leaving everyone “thinking happy thoughts” and wondering what it would be like to never grow up.
Throughout the district, the amazing generosity of our community continues to support those in need during the holiday season. Thank you to the tremendous efforts of the PTG’s, student council advisors and members, and various contingencies at the Jr,/Sr. High from community service coordinator, Karen Uhl-Smith and homeroom teachers who took the initiative to organize this drive. Kudos to the Spanish club who went above and beyond with the help of advisors Jennifer Coniglio and Maria Segura, who for the second year in a row did a Hispanic food drive for Spanish foods not typically donated – but so much in need. Students in Ms. Jordan’s class wrote out grocery lists in Spanish, shopped and then decorated their boxes in Spanish.
