The path to our dreams begins with the partnership between our school
and families working collaboratively to ensure a safe and caring
environment. Varied educational experiences at Mt. Pleasant Elementary
school offer students the tools necessary to embrace diversity, become
independent lifelong learners, and compassionate global citizens.
The fourth graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School are learning all about biographies in March. As a culminating activity, the students researched a famous person of their choice. Following their research, the students presented 10 of the most interesting facts about the figure. They could also dress the part of the famous person and bring it artifacts that tell more of their story. After each presentation, the class had time for a question-and-answer period.
To celebrate St. Patrick’s Day on March 17, the students at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School wrote about what is worth more than gold to them and what they would do if they found a pot of gold. They sang St. Patrick’s Day poems and created beautiful rainbows.
More than 250 parents, students and staff members participated in Smithtown Central School District’s virtual Parent University on March 8. Parent University is hosted by the district’s Wellness Committee. The evening, themed “Responding to this Moment,” featured more than a dozen workshops for participants in two different sessions.
Workshops were facilitated by both community members, professionals and staff. Mental health counselor Ron Villano addressed how to manage concerns for students during this time such as anxiety, stress, feeling trapped and mental health, and school performance. Dietitian/nutritionist Colleen McDermott talked about different nutrition components to lead a healthy lifestyle, while registered sleep technologist Brendan Duffy spoke about how to protect and improve sleep.
Smithtown’s administrator for guidance and related student services Kevin Colon provided strategies for effective communication between parents and teenagers. Nesaquake Middle School reading teacher Julianne DeSilva spoke about how to encourage reading at home with ideas for how parents can engage with reading with their children and model good reading habits.
Dr. Beth Forhman’s workshop offered evidence-based suggestions to foster family and children’s resiliency during this challenging time. Dr. Marissa Abram also spoke about the impact of mental health during the pandemic and how to create self-care plan. Psychologist and therapist Craig O’Brien addressed biological stress reactions and strategies for managing anxieties.
As an introduction to computer programming, Mrs. Smerechniak worked with the fifth graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School. The students learned about some of the basic features of the mini robots, Ozobot. Ozobot is a robot that blends physical and digital worlds and identifies lines, colors and codes on iPads and paper.
Mt. Pleasant Elementary School celebrated the 100th day of school on Feb. 25. Using their walkers and canes, the kindergarten students came to school dressed as if they were 100 years old. Throughout the day, the students participated in activities centered around the number 100. Kindergartners counted to 100 using ice cream cones and the first graders created 100 day shirts and hats.
