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.

Third grade Bosti students in Ms. Kraska’s class have teamed up with students in Ms. Raven’s and Ms. Tara’s preschool class. The third graders will be reading to the preschoolers bi-weekly with the purpose of building positive leadership skills among our third graders and a reciprocal love of reading for both our youngest learners and our third-grade leaders. As a “get to know each other” session, the students made slime together. According to Principal Laura Kimball, they are looking forward to their next meeting!
