Kramer Lane Students Present Living Wax Museum

Kramer Lane Students Present Living Wax Museum photo

Student John McCarthy has his own telescope at home and enjoys marveling at starry nights and learning about space.

So when it came time for the second-grader in Julie Schmidlapp’s class to select a historical American subject for the Kramer Lane Elementary School Living Wax Museum, it was a no-brainer for him. He chose famous astronomer and NASA contributor Carl Sagan.

“I’m very interested in astronomy and enjoy reading books about him,” McCarthy said.

The museum culminated a second-grade project at the school that enforced students’ skills in research, writing, history and creativity. Once they had selected their historical figures, the students researched them in the school library and online.

“They had to complete an independent report and create a timeline of their subject’s life,” explained second-grade teacher Andrea Morelli. “They also had to write out a first-person summary for the presentation, where they dressed up and delivered a monologue for visitors.”

At the press of a button, museum-goers received an informative monologue from the students about their researched figures. Several dug far back in history for their subject, such as Pahal Sheth, who conducted in-depth research on Harriet Tubman.

“I am even going to be on the $20 bill,” Sheth told visitors.

The event ended on a sweet note for passersby as Milton Hershey – portrayed by Sean Caputo – handed out his beloved Hershey’s Kisses after his monologue.

They even experienced what it feels like to be in traffic in New York City during the rush hour commute! Overall, it was a very exciting experience and successful day for PetPair who made many, many sales. These students are going to be assets one day in the business field and any organization would be lucky to have them!  Thanks to Ms. Mole for organizing this great learning experience!

Varsity Kickline Wins NDA National Championship

041118_eagles.jpg
Bethpage High School’s varsity kickline team, Golden Girls and Co., has accomplished a first in school history by competing in all four final rounds of the 2018 National Dance Alliance High School National Championship and earning first place in the small varsity kick division. They also won the Innovative Choreography Award for their kick routine.   

Leading up to nationals, which were held in Orlando, Florida in early March, the team submitted a video of their routine that qualified them for the competition. In January, Golden Girls and Co. scored highly at the NDA Regional Competition at Walt Whitman High School, taking home first place in kick, second in pom, and third in both jazz and team performance. 

“We’ve been hoping for this [win] since we were on JV,” said senior Gabby McGlynn. “Not a lot of seniors get to say they won nationals, and it feels like fate that we got to be those seniors to lead the team there.” 

Senior Francesca Conte, one of the team’s captains, recalled the hard work, determination and perseverance she put forth in pushing her team along the way to nationals. “We had two minutes to prove ourselves,” she said. “You have to put it out there and leave it all on the floor.” 

The team continued its winning streak at the Nassau Scholastic Kickline Championships at Nassau Community College, where they won the Grand Championship in the kick category and earned second place in pom and jazz, and fourth in team performance. The Grand Championship award is given to the team that has the highest cumulative score from three previous Scholastic competitions in a specific category.   

“From the beginning of the year, the team’s goal was to make it to the finals in all four categories at nationals,” said coach Ashley Ioveno. “We wanted them to set goals, work to achieve them, push themselves, and reap the benefits of hard work.”

The district congratulates the team and Coaches Ioveno and Jeanna Martino for a remarkable season and an NDA National Championship title.  
 

Recognition of Excellence

Bethpage held its annual Recognition of Excellence Dinner where ten high school seniors each recognize an elementary, middle and high school teacher who had an impact on them during their K-12 career in the Bethpage School District.  The students were poised, humorous and touching in their comments about their teachers.  The ten were chosen by the faculty of Bethpage High School for their success in all areas of our school community.  Congratulations to the students and the exemplary teachers they honored!  Special thanks to Mr. Stehlik and the BHS Jazz Ensemble for adding a touch of class to the evening.  They were fantastic!

Luck of the Leprechaun Trap

Luck of the Leprechaun Trap photo

A creative project at Central Boulevard Elementary School brought grade levels together as Debra Lange and Linda DeMaria’s first-grade class collaborated with Barbara Cataldi’s fourth-graders to engineer a leprechaun trap using recycled materials.

Working in teams, the students drafted blueprints of their designs and identified which materials they would use to trap the cunning character of Irish folklore. To build their contraptions, they brought in materials from home such as cereal boxes, tissue boxes and shoeboxes.

After drawing up their plans, the teams constructed the traps out of their everyday items, adding decorative touches with glitter, stickers, construction paper and pipe cleaners. They presented their devices to their peers, explaining how the levers, axles and doors would capture the leprechaun. Many projects included gold coins to lure the Irish fairy into the trap.

Visiting the Lighthouse

The High School and Middle School students that attended this trip had a rare treat.  Two of the light keepers (retired Navy engineers) were on site and gave us a tour of not only the lighthouse but the basement and the actual lens house.  In the basement the engineers explained how they rigged all the automated systems that regulate both the interval and rotation of the twin spotlights.  Up in the lens house the keepers demonstrated how they maintain the electrical systems that keep the light operating smoothly.  The top of this structure provided clear breathtaking views of Fire Island.

Our students were shown how ship wrecked passengers were rescued in the old days utilizing a makeshift pulley system, delivered by cannon!  They also learned how a Fresnel lens amplified an oil lamp into a beam that could shine out into the ocean.  This technology was state of the art prior to electric lights.  The four ton, 1st order Fresnel lens was recovered from the Franklin Institute in Philadelphia and is now proudly on display in its own building.

Thanks to Mr. Portuese and Mr. Carroll for making this happen!

Texas Comes to Bethpage

On a beautiful evening a little bit of Texas came to Bethpage as we celebrated Country Night!  Mr. Wibben organized the entire evening and it was a great event that included food, dancing, music, dunk tank, mechanical bull and the Fire Department!  Thanks to all the teachers and staff who assisted.  Special thanks to the teachers who agreed to be dunked- Ms. Huerta-Strongin, Ms. O'Brien, Mrs. Caliguri and Mr. Choi!  Thanks to Texas Roadhouse and BullI BBQ for donating the delicious food!  We could not have done it without Classic Country which donated the band, the DJ and the dancers who showed us the moves!  We are always grateful to the Bethpage Fire Department and they came out with trucks and the Safety House that kids could explore.  Thanks to Jump Around Party Rentals for donating the mechanical bull, Creative Games Inc. for donating the face painting and dunk tank and Twinkle Town Entertainment for donating the bounce house!

And thanks to Mr. Lisa and the custodial crew for all their hard work preparing the event and then cleaning up after us so BHS could be ready for Homecoming on Saturday!

It was a great night!  Thanks Mr. Wibben for organizing the event.  We raised a lot of money that will go to assist our friends in Dickinson!  The Bethpage Congress of Teachers donated $1,000 for the cause!  How generous of them!  The BHS Girls' Soccer Team helped to pack up all the supplies along with the Rufrano family!  Thanks to all!
