Members of the Susan E. Wiley Dance Club joined forces for a dance workshop with members of the Walter G. O’Connell Copiague High School Hip Hop Club and Zumba Club for an afternoon of collaborative fun on March 3. Joined by Hip Hop Club adviser Mr. Garcia, the elementary students learned about the club’s mission to spread positivity and give back to the community through dance. After breaking into small groups and getting to know their high school instructors for the day, the students learned two TikTok dances – Renegade and Say So – and competed for the title of best dance group. The students joined together in the end for a finale performance of both songs and were treated to a dance by the Zumba Club.
It was an indoor snow day for the first graders at Susan E. Wiley Elementary School when they celebrated the white weather with plenty of hands-on lessons.
Dressed in their warmest pajamas, students started the day by reading snow-themed books and practicing their writing and math skills with snow-based activities. As a science experiment, the students hypothesized about whether or not oil and water in a mason jar could mix together or stay separated. The resulting experiment, with a bit of added glitter, created a snowstorm in a jar.
Using baking soda and hair conditioner, the students even made their own snow inside the classroom. Snow paint was created using flour, salt and water, which results in a fluffy art creation. Before the students had a chance to snack on cheesy snowballs, they ended the day’s activities with an indoor snowball fight. Each student wrote a kind message on a piece of paper. They crumbled their papers, tossed them at each other and read aloud the positive messages at the end of the snowball fight.
Honoring the many accomplishments of its students both in and out of the class, Copiague School District’s administrators and Board of Education held a student recognition awards ceremony on Jan. 27.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. Kathleen Bannon welcomed the students and their families and congratulated them for being chosen for recognition. “Publicly recognizing excellence is a way of celebrating some of the great successes of the Copiague School District’s programs and, at the same time, enabling us to showcase outstanding role models to our school community.”
After reading a short description of each students’ accomplishments, they were called to the podium to receive their plaque and congratulations from the board of education members.
The following students were selected for recognition: Deauville Gardens East: Mert Ergal and Josue Mendez; Deauville Gardens West: Maxumis Aguilera, Danika Eldora and Keyon Elliot; Great Neck Road: Andy Andino, Melanie Robertson and Maya Thompson; Susan E.
