Locust Valley Intermediate News


Mathletes
Written by fifth-graders Jack, Quin, and Sydney

In May of 2009 five 5th grade students from Locust Valley Intermediate School went to SUNY Old Westbury for a mathletes competition. There were about 50 schools that went, and there were five students from each school.

The five students from LVI were Zachary, Peyton, Sydney, Jack and Quin. Upon arrival they participated in an individual event that had 10 problems to be completed in 30 minutes.  In mathletes they had half an hour to finish only five  questions. They were also competing against 6th graders. 

After the 30 minutes were up, they went into an auditorium. There, they checked the answers with the person who created the problems. He showed them many different ways to solve them.

Then it was time to start the team event. They had another 10 questions to answer in only 20 minutes but this time they worked as a team.

After lunch they held the tiebreaker for the three people that got 10 out of 10 problems right on the individual competition (they were all 6th graders). Then they held the team tiebreaker. The first 5 tiebreaker questions everyone got wrong. Finally they got the 6th question right. The team that won had the same person who won the induvidual tiebreaker. 

Going on this trip was very fun for those students who participated. For people who love doing math it was a great day. Everyone from LVI would love to do it again. If you get a chance to go you should because it is a lot of fun to do math and working on a team with friends for a day is great too.
 
 

Locust Valley and Bayville Students Win Anti-Bullying Poster Contest

Students in Locust Valley and Bayville Elementary Schools know how to stop bullying, and the posters they created to spread the word won them recognition from Child Abuse Prevention Services (CAPS).

Three students were winners in the CAPS 2009-2010 Bully Prevention Poster/Poem Contest. Additionally, a fourth student received honorable mention. The posters were selected from among 1500 entries that were submitted by students from 57 schools throughout Long Island. The fourth graders entered the contest in conjunction with their bully prevention program.

Congratulations to all the participants!

Keeping LV Spirits High

Locust Valley students may not be together, but they haven’t lost the Falcon spirit. The Locust Valley Elementary Parents’ Council organized a Virtual Spirit Week from March 23-27 for Ann MacArthur Primary School and Locust Valley Intermediate School students. 

Each day, students were encouraged to dress up for that day’s theme and to do a specific activity. Children dressed in pajamas, wacky wardrobes, crazy hats and hair and sports team jerseys, leading up to the last spirit day which featured Falcon wear. Activities for each day included having breakfast with the family, reading in an unusual spot, doing chores around the house, getting outside and performing random acts of kindness.

LVEPC Co-President Meredith Wachter said spirit week was fun for everyone. “LVEPC Virtual Spirit Week was a way of staying connected, sharing in an activity while apart, and being able to see one another’s smiling faces, places and activities through the photos,” she said.
