The New York Islander’s mascot, Sparky the Dragon, visited Edward J. Bosti Elementary for a special assembly. Joined by assembly host Denise Gonzalez, Sparky taught students about teamwork as well as ways to get active and form healthy habits.

A fun presentation with question-and-answer prompts led students to a better understanding of why making healthy choices matters. Then, in a hands-on teamwork challenge, a student and teacher raced to dress in full goalie equipment. Only, the student had help in putting on his own, showing that teamwork always leads to a better outcome.

After reading the book “Balloons Over Broadway” by Melissa Sweet, 4th graders in Ms. Mackin’s class at Slocum Elementary planned, designed and created parade balloons of their own.

“Balloons Over Broadway” is a nonfiction story about the first Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and the puppeteer who made it happen. The students first wrote persuasive letters to Macy’s with reasons as to why their balloon should be in the parade. They then paraded their own creations around the school, showing off their balloons to the kindergarten and first grade classes.

Fourth grade students at Idle Hour Elementary School created a Native American “museum” with handmade items after studying Native American heritage and culture.

With parents and loved ones in attendance, students explained the history of the Iroquois tribe and the similarities between the Iroquois government and our nation’s present-day government. Students then showcased their handmade creations, from masks to models of villages and longhouses, fishing traps and poles, a papoose, wampum belt, bow and arrows and more. Each student acted as a museum guide, explaining the significance and history of the item they’d made.
