In honor of National Nutrition Month, fourth graders at Edith L. Slocum Elementary School recently created posters that classified meals into three categories: “go” (healthy), “slow” (not so healthy) and “whoa” (very unhealthy). The students were required to utilize all five food groups for each meal they customized. This activity gave the students a better understanding of nutritional components of food.

Encouraging Dignity for all Students

Elementary and middle schools in the Connetquot Central School District recently participated in the district’s annual “Dignity for All Students Act Week,” which promotes acceptance and unity in all aspects.

Edith L. Slocum Elementary School facilitated a “kindness chain reaction” project where each class was assigned another class for which to complete an act of kindness. Fourth and fifth graders at the school also embarked on a scavenger hunt, using educational posters hung around the building to answer questions about mental health and bullying. DASA week at Cherokee Street Elementary School featured daily dress-up themes, including superhero day because “superheroes take a stand against bullying” and jersey day because “everyone counts.” At John Pearl Elementary School, students enjoyed a virtual assembly hosted by nonprofit Camfel Productions, centering around themes such as being the best version of oneself and treating others with kindness. The week’s programming at Ronkonkoma Middle School included a virtual yoga program available to all students, a DASA-themed art showcase and an activity in which students wrote about what makes them special by answering the prompt “I am more than…”

Connetquot Central School District thanks all elementary and middle school faculty and staff for working hard to ensure another successful DASA week, as well as the students for enthusiastically participating in the week’s activities.
