Cracking The Code

Across the district, students in grades 3-5 practiced their computer science skills by participating in an Hour of Code on Dec. 6.

According to its website, Hour of Code is a global movement presented by Computer Science Education Week and that reaches millions of students in more than 180 countries through a one-hour introduction to computer science and computer programming. 

David Schneider, the district’s Assistant Superintendent for Instruction and Technology, and Andrew Choi, Director of Technology, broadcast live to each third-, fourth- and fifth-grade elementary classroom from the Bethpage High School television studio, where they explained the purpose of the Hour of Code and described the coding students would be doing.

Using their school-issued Chromebooks, students logged on to to complete missions in Minecraft, programming characters with coding blocks to move through mazes.

Kindergartners and second-graders at Charles Campagne Elementary School learned about traffic safety from Otto the Auto.

According to the AAA Mid-Atlantic Foundation for Safety and Education program, Otto is a three-foot-tall, remote-controlled talking vehicle that can blink his eyes, turn on his headlights and spin in circles to teach young students about automobile safety. Otto educates students about the importance of wearing a seat belt, looking both ways before crossing a street and being vigilant when walking in parking lots. 

Through this presentation, students learned how to keep themselves and others safe when a parent is driving. 

Parent Night Out

A great time was had by all at our first ever Parents Night Out event!  Parents were welcome to donate to the BHS Girl's Softball team and drop their child off at BHS for a night of fun activities as organized by Ms. Tierney and several other colleagues.  It was a fantastic evening- full of fun and smiling faces!

Read To Achieve

Third-grade students from all three elementary schools attended the annual Read to Achieve assembly at Bethpage High School, which was geared toward strengthening their interest in reading and reiterating its importance in their academic careers.

Kicking off the annual celebration, district administrators and several varsity team captains shared their favorite books and discussed why reading is essential to achieving academic success. Team captains also explained that one must perform well academically in order to be on a sports team. Students then enjoyed a performance from the varsity kickline team and cheerleaders.

Concluding the program, the third-graders assembled into groups to participate in basketball challenges with a high school varsity team captain.

A special thank-you to the Lions Club for donating dictionaries to every third-grader for the fifth consecutive year. Lions Club President George Hannau was on site at the Read to Achieve event for the distribution of the dictionary/almanacs. The Dictionary Project provides an opportunity for students to expand their vocabulary while aiding teachers in their goal of helping them to finish the school year as good writers, active readers and creative thinkers.

In observance of National Red Ribbon Week, elementary students in the district learned about making healthy choices from members of both the middle school and high school’s Students Against Destructive Decisions club.

SADD members visited Central Boulevard, Charles Campagne and Kramer Lane classrooms, where they educated fourth- and fifth-graders about avoiding the signs of bad habits and how to make healthy decisions with a game of bingo. Every student received a bingo card containing a healthy habit and characteristic in each box. The young students were awarded a red ribbon sticker, pencil and bingo chip for lining up five answers in a row. 

Read to Achieve

Bethpage held its annual Read to Achieve program where all the third graders in the district come up to Bethpage High School to listen to our Scholar-Athlete Captains talk about the importance of sportsmanship, doing well in school and READING!  After a demonstration by the Kickline and the Cheerleaders and a visit by the Eagle himself, the third graders got to shoot hoops with the Captains!  It was a great day.  Thanks to everyone involved!
