Becoming One with Nature

Becoming One with Nature

First grade students enrolled in Keri Farrell’s class at Idle Hour Elementary School recently put on a stunning performance of the play, “Bugz,” for attending family members and kindergarten students alike. Under direction of music teacher Kelly Daugherty and Mrs. Farrell, the students spent months rehearsing their lines and perfecting their choreography before putting on the big performance for all to see. The play featured a beautiful set design, eye-popping costumes and a number of songs which showcased both the students’ vocal abilities and humorous nature. Prior to the big premiere, the students visited The Arbors Assisted Living Facility at Bohemia to treat their “Grandfriends” to a special performance of the show.

In an effort to get a jump start on utilizing technology to communicate, third grade students enrolled in Stephanie Zelinski's class at Idle Hour Elementary School recently communicated with their pen pals from Valerie O'Connell’s and Susan Meade's class at Cherokee Street Elementary School in a video conference call via Google Meet. 

Although they have never met one another prior to engaging in the video chat, the students enthusiastically greeted one another and introduced themselves to their pen pals with assistance from their teachers. 

During their time spent communicating, they were able to ask questions about their pen pal’s school building, classroom set ups and current classroom projects. Additionally, they discussed similarities and differences about each other's communities.
