Congratulations to senior Annabel Shen, the 2021-22 high school recipient of the Partners For the Future Honors Program for young scientists through Cold Spring Harbor Laboratories (CSHL). This internship provides hands-on field research partnering over 200 high school seniors with CSHL researchers.
Madame Reed’s French 4 Honors class is enjoying learning about the many wonderful musicians in the francophone world. Each student researched a French-speaking artist and presented about their life and interpreted lyrics from a song of their choice. They made connections between the music and the six AP French themes such as Family and Community, Beauty and Esthetics and Contemporary Life.
Students couldn’t wait for the much anticipated “ice cream making” day in Chemistry class with teacher, Dr. Colascione. Students learned that at room temperature, nitrogen is normally a gas. When nitrogen gas is exposed to high pressure in an evacuated container, the gas will liquefy. The temperature drops to -320 oF, ideal for making ice cream quickly.
High school students visited the Heckscher Museum in December to view the artwork on display and find an artifact which spoke to them. Their chosen museum piece will become the basis of their visual response for the Long Island's Best student exhibition. Students will submit their artwork for a juried competition this spring, where chosen works will be displayed at the Heckscher Museum.
A huge holiday shout out to ALL the students, staff and families for the tremendous effort in collecting so many TOYS for families in need. Your generosity and support will help so many local organizations spread holiday cheer and good will toward others. Thank you from the Jr./Sr. High School, Lloyd Harbor School, West Side School and Goosehill Primary school!
