Copiague School District showed off the many talents of its student-artists and student-musicians during its annual districtwide art festival at Great Neck Road Elementary School. The hallways featured art pieces from all of the schools in the district and gave guests a glimpse into the students’ hard work and dedication. Guests also voted for their favorite elementary artwork. The superintendent’s art gallery was also on display, featuring the art pieces hand-selected by Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon to be hung in the administration building.  Throughout the evening, the elementary school choruses took turns sharing the stage and entertaining audiences with a sampling of their vocal talents.

Second-graders in Jackie Oquendo’s class at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School are practicing their math fluency in fun ways. The classroom divides into different math centers and rotates through different stations to hone their addition and subtraction skills. In one station, students used dice, the students tested their fluency with math word problems, while another station used popsicle sticks to work on different placement values. Students also played math games using their Chromebooks.

In recognition of Earth Day, Susan E. Wiley Elementary School taught its students about the importance of reducing, reusing and recycling during a “Bash the Trash” assembly sponsored by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association. Bash the Trash speakers taught the students about keeping the earth and environment clean while also playing musical instruments made from recycled and reused materials. They also demonstrated how science can transform even the simplest materials into musical instruments. Students also learned how to make their own instruments out of everyday items in their home.
