Grade 1's Thanksgiving Feast

On Friday, November 16, 2018, Kramer Lane Elementary School held their annual First Grade Thanksgiving Feast! Led by Mr. Wibben, the students performed for their parents and loved ones several Thanksgiving songs, such as "The Whacky Gobbler" while wearing sunglasses and "It's Thanksgiving Time" while waving their American flags. In addition to the songs, the students recited lines from memory about the history of Thanksgiving. The students then partnered up, formed longways sets, and performed a traditional Thanksgiving folk dance. The event culminated with a grand feast prepared by the First Grade parents. Special thanks to the custodial staff, Mr. Kevin and Mr. Nick for setting everything up so that the day could run smoothly. Thanks to Ms. Noskewicz for helping the students create their Pilgrim and Native American costumes! Finally, thanks to the First Grade Parents and the amazing First Grade Teachers: Mrs. Seewald, Ms. Schmidt, and Ms. Meehan for all of their help and support! Happy Thanksgiving!


Proactive Superintendent’s Day

The District gathered on Nov. 6 for it’s fall Superintendent’s Conference Day, during which the various staff departments participated in presentations, workshops and activities to continue proactive learning and development as educators.

Staff members from the high school and JFK middle school along with Superintendent of School David Schneider attended morning sessions that focused on dynamic issues, led by Lauren Marra and Romila “Dr. Romie” Mushtaq, MD. Marra, a behaviorist who specializes on the topic of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports, presented on proactive discipline approaches with students. Dr. Romie is a renowned neurologist that stressed the importance and techniques of mindfulness in education for both students and faculty. 

The afternoon was a time of collaboration as departments at both secondary schools traveled to the Island Trees School District and met with educators in their corresponding building and subject areas. They had opportunities to share ideas and broaden their instructional practices.

At the elementary level, faculty members from Kramer Lane, Charles Campagne and Central Boulevard broke into grade-specific groups to gain training in STEM and other pertinent topics. Led by district administrators and teachers, the STEM workshop demonstrated assorted grade-specific lessons and activities. The journeys session covered content requested by teachers and also provided time for them to discuss and navigate digital tools.

Other aspects of the day included CPR training for nurses and building monitors and the Hofstra Mental Health Conference, which was attended by guidance counselors and social workers. 

The district thanks Assistant Superintendent for Instruction Michael Spence and all that helped to coordinate and facilitate an educational day for district educators.
