Elementary Schools Recognized for PLTW Programs

All seven of the district’s elementary schools have been recognized as Project Lead The Way Distinguished Schools for the 2017-18 school year. 

Smithtown’s elementary schools represent seven of the 22 New York State schools identified. “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. “It is one of just 97 elementary schools across the U.S. to receive this honor.”

The PLTW Distinguished School recognition honors schools committed to increasing student access, engagement and achievement in their PLTW programs. To be eligible for the designation, schools must offer at least two PLTW Launch modules at each grade level and have more than 75 percent of the student body participating during the 2016-17 school year.

PLTW is a nonprofit organization that provides a transformative learning experience for K-12 students and teachers. PLTW empowers students to develop in-demand, transportable knowledge and skills through pathways in computer science, engineering and biomedical science. 

Dogwood’s Bistro Has Plenty on the Menu

Fifth-graders at Dogwood Elementary recently enjoyed a special “dining” experience at the library’s bistro book tasting.

After confirming their reservation, students were seated at tables with checkered tablecloths, vases of colorful flowers, flickering candles and trays full of books. Each student was able to “taste” different books for each course: appetizer, entree and dessert. The fifth-graders recorded their thoughts about each course in their menus as Italian music filled the air.
