Family Wellness Night

Dogwood Elementary School, in collaboration with the Dogwood PTA, held its first Family Wellness Night. Wellness is an active process of becoming aware of, and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. During the evening, participants explored self care using movement, nutrition and calming strategies such as art and breathing. In the spirit of Family Connect Night, families rotated together through wellness stations and had the opportunity to visit the hydration station to sample infused waters. The evening focused on being peaceful and present in the moment.

Kindergarten students at Dogwood Elementary School recently performed the play “An Adventure in Mother Goose Land.” In the play, Mother Hubbard's dog has lost his bone and asks characters from Mother Goose rhymes if they have seen it. The mystery is solved when the mouse in “Hickory Dickory Dock” finds the bone in the clock.

The district’s elementary and middle schools have been selected as Project Lead the Way Distinguished Schools for 2018-2019 school year.

For a second consecutive year, all seven of the district’s elementary schools have been designated as Distinguished Launch Schools based on their PLTW Launch implementation and participation in the 2017-2018 school year. Smithtown’s elementary schools represent seven of the 11 schools identified in New York State, and seven of the 216 Launch schools being recognized nationally.  

All three of the district’s middle schools have been designated as Distinguished Gateway Schools based on their Gateway implementation and participation in the 2017-2018 school year. Smithtown represents the only three schools in New York State, and three of the 148 Gateway schools being recognized nationally.  

“This recognition is certainly representative of all of the hard work that has gone into our successful implementation on the part of the many staff and faculty members involved,” said Paul Strader, executive director of curriculum.
