Kindness Club Explores "A New Kind of Kind"

The students in the Central Boulevard Kindness Club have become published authors! These kind Grade 2 and Grade 3 students have worked all year on creating a book about how to be kind to each other while following guidelines to be safe during a pandemic. With the help of Student Treasurers, the members of the Kindness Club created a book called "A New Kind of Kind". The book mentions ways to be safe while being kind from A-Z. Mrs. Mutch and Ms. Olsen are extremely proud of all of the students' hard work and are happy to share this book with the Bethpage Community!

Augmented Reality

Students in Central Boulevard Elementary School used an augmented reality application called Quiver during Library classes to make their drawings pop into 3D and become animated! Planets rotated, volcanoes erupted, rain forest birds flew threw the jungle, and fire trucks raised their ladders and sprayed their hoses! Thank you to Ms. Tracy for facilitating this activity with the students!

2020 Hour of Code

On Friday, December 18, 2020, Grade 3-5 students from Central Boulevard Elementary School, Charles Campagne Elementary School, and Kramer Lane Elementary School participated in Bethpage Schools FIFTH Annual Hour of Code Event.  In the days leading up to the event, students learned about what computers do, sequencing, and debugging. 

During the Hour of Code Event, students completed coding challenges from Code Monkeys: Coding Adventure with the support of Mr. Schneider, Mr. Titolo, and Mr. Choi, who joined each classroom through the live broadcast from the Bethpage High School Television Studio.  Mr. Schneider and Mr. Choi answered some questions over the broadcast.  At the conclusion of the event, each student was provided with a certificate of completion.

Special thanks to Mr. Furrey, Mrs. DiFiglia, and Mrs. McCarthy and all of the teachers for making time for their students to participate in the Fifth Annual Hour of Code Event and get a taste of computer science!  We also want to acknowledge the district's IT Department for engineering the Hour of Code broadcast.

Physically Distanced, Socially Connected

Central Boulevard Elementary School kicked off another year of "Thoughtful Thursdays". Every month, students are asked to focus on acts of kindness that support each other and our school community.  This month, Central Boulevard wanted to show that although we cannot be as connected as in the past, we are still one community. Each student created a link that is part of a chain link in the Central Boulevard lobby to symbolize that we are Physically Distant, but Socially Connected.
