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.

In a community partnership that benefited youth athletes, Falcon Pride Athletic Booster Club and Locust Valley High School joined together to hold Future Falcon Day on April 27 and 28 at the high school.
 
Varsity athletes and their coaches volunteered their time to host clinics for approximately 60 youth athletes in the district’s feeder programs for lacrosse, baseball and track. The aspiring Falcons received individualized coaching from the high school players who taught them skills, held drills and offered words of encouragement.
 
Following the events of each day, the athletes from all age groups joined together to share pizza and snacks and discuss the fun they had.  
 
“Future Falcon Day fostered a sense of pride and school spirit within our athletic community,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics Dr. Danielle Turner. “The partnership we have with Falcon Pride and the youth athletic organizations provides incredible opportunities for our student-athletes of all ages.” Dr. Turner expressed sincere gratitude to Falcon Pride for sponsoring Future Falcon Day and for the continued support the booster club offers to the district.

The Locust Valley Intermediate School Student Council hit the ground running with their efforts to help those in need. With the help of the school community, the group collected 325 pairs of used shoes for the nonprofit organization Soles4Souls. The organization distributes shoes to those in need around the world and uses resources from shoe collections to create sustainable jobs in poverty-stricken areas around the world.
