Reinforcing Fire Safety
Thank you to the Bayville Fire Department for teaching Bayville Primary School students about fire safety and giving tours of the fire trucks. Not only was the visit fun for everyone, but it reinforced lessons taught in the classrooms.
Students Working Together
A fourth grade class at Bayville Intermediate School and a second grade class at Bayville Primary School got together for a meet and greet, as they are going to work together throughout the year. The older students will serve as big brothers/sisters to their younger counterparts, helping to teach them about kindness and teamwork.
Fourth grade teacher Maureen Pederson and second grade teacher Carolyn Morales have teamed up to allow their students to benefit from interacting with children of different ages. For their first meeting, the students spent time getting to know each other while playing in the Bayville Intermediate School playground.
Mrs. Pederson said both ages will benefit from the partnership. “The younger students look to the older ones as role models and soak up the lessons they learn from them,” she said. “The older students learn leadership skills and gain confidence from being needed and respected by their younger partners.”
Mrs. Pederson and Mrs. Morales plan to meet several times throughout the year to work on various projects that would support the purpose of this partnership.
Successful Start to New School Year
Students in Locust Valley Central School District from kindergarten to 12th grade began school on Sept. 4, and their teachers had meaningful lessons prepared for the first day. From team building activities to STEM projects, students were engaged, focused on learning and had bright smiles on their faces.
Middle School/High School students returned to a brand new gymnasium floor and newly painted middle school lockers. Repairs and improvements to various elementary classrooms were also done during the summer, along with the completion of solar paneling at Bayville Primary School.
There is much to look forward to this month, as sports officially begin, open houses will take place at each school and the high school will hold its first college fair of the school year. Please visit the district website and follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram to ensure that you don’t miss any school events, meetings or activities.
“Walking around our schools today, I was thoroughly impressed by the professionalism of our staff and the exceptional behavior of our students,” Acting Superintendent Thomas P. Dolan, Ed.D., said. “The positivity that this community exudes is contagious, and I am confident that the first day of the 2019-2020 school year is an accurate predictor of what is to come.”
