Good morning, Connetquot! John Pearl hosts morning news show

On Monday mornings, John Pearl Elementary School fifth graders kick off the week with an exciting news show. Each week, two or three students are selected to highlight special events such as upcoming PTA events and important school information or updates.

At the end of each show, students present the segments “Guess Who?” or “Teacher Talk.” During “Teacher Talk,” student-reporters interview a teacher in the building. During the “Guess Who?” segment, students select one faculty member then obtain three clues about them and a photo for viewers to “guess who.”

“This is one of my favorite projects to work on with the students each week,” said computer teaching assistant Cheryl Towle. “I love teaching them how to gather information for our stories, organize it all and then create the script while using the technology that our district has provided to us. These are special memories that we hope will last a lifetime for our students.”

Students at John Pearl Elementary became weather casters for the day as part of Meteorologist John Marshall’s “John’s Weather Tour!”

For over 25 years, John has predicted accurate weather forecasts in the tri-state area, working on channels such as Fox Weather, CBS2 and WNBC Channel 4 in New York City.

During his live assembly, students learned about types of weather and their differences, including hail, sleet, rain, tornadoes and hurricanes. John also discussed his career and what it means to be a meteorologist, offering insights about the skills and equipment he uses to predict the weather. He also explained the tools that meteorologists use to collect and decipher weather data.

He then invited student-volunteers up to his mobile weather studio equipped with green screen technology where the students learned how to read a forecast on the green screen.

Connetquot High School’s National English Honor Society members visited John Pearl and Idle Hour Elementary Schools to celebrate Dr. Seuss Day with their younger peers.

In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday on March 2, many schools across the country participate in an annual nationwide reading celebration. To partake, Connetquot High Schoolers and Connetquot’s elementary students dressed as their favorite whimsical and colorful Dr. Seuss characters for the day. The honor society members then read beloved Dr. Suess books such as “Green Eggs and Ham,” “The Cat in the Hat” and “Horton Hears a Who!” to each grade with students ranging from kindergarten to fifth graders.

Each read aloud was followed by a fun, relevant craft for the students to take home. For example, students who read, “Horton Hears a Who!” potted their own tiny “Whoville” cities in cups of soil, while those who read “Green Eggs and Ham” colored green and eggs and ham onto plates.
