The Lloyd Harbor School PTG handed out lawn signs to the entire school to keep up school spirit and remind us that we are still a community! (You may have started seeing them around town). We’re in this Together – LHS Strong! Thank you to the LHSPTG…
Congratulations to Dr. Beth Chase-Schuman (tenure area of School Psychologist), James Stucchio (tenure area of Assistant Superintendent for Business), Erin Goldthwaite (tenure area of Districtwide Chairperson of Special Education), and Dr. Suzanne Main-Wegielnik (tenure area of School Psychologist), who were granted tenure at the recommendation of the Superintendent at the May 12th Board of Education meeting.
Today marks the start of Teacher Appreciation week. This year, teacher and staff appreciation has certainly taken on new meaning for our schools and our parents. Throughout this crisis, we have honored the heroes who put their lives on the line every day to save lives---our doctors, nurses, paramedics, firefighters, and police officers. This week we also honor the teachers---the heroes who tirelessly navigated an educational emergency amidst this health crisis, sacrificing long hours, days and weeks to figure out how to teach their students remotely and help them feel safe and secure in the process.
Congratulations to Adeline Rodriguez, her poster will be featured on the 2020-2021 FLES folder! Please see the link to see her published artwork. While Adeline placed first in her age group from Lloyd Harbor School for the AATSP Poster Contest, she later placed 2nd "in the nation" in her age group!!! Way to go Adeline...
In February, fifth graders at Lloyd Harbor were busy learning and creating during the beginning of a “Makerspace” unit. Students are encouraged to create something that interests them using diverse skills sets and tools that could include anything from ChromeBook technology to fabric, 3D printers or cardboard boxes, Legos, glue guns or hammers!
What better way to learn, than to learn from students! At the February Board of Education meeting, administration and staff were proud to present and collaborate with KidOYO coding projects by students from grades 4-8. “OYO” stands for “On Your Own” and that is certainly what these brilliant minds proved as they demonstrated their coding skills on the Promethean Board to community members.
Lloyd Harbor 5th graders worked hard on their hand-made no-sew blankets. Instead of a Valentine's Day craft, they became blanketeers for "Project Linus" - a national non-profit organization that provides security, warmth and comfort by donating a new blanket to children with long-term illnesses.
