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.
