Fifth-graders in Jeff Faragasso’s and Brian Pelosi’s classes at Mt. Pleasant Elementary recently completed building their first robots. The students built the robots from scratch and tested them by racing in the class’ Indy 500, Robot Edition. They worked cooperatively in groups of four or five, each taking on a role for the assignment. Some of the responsibilities included gathering and organizing the pieces, identifying the next step on the iPad and assembling the robot.

Field Day Fun

On May 18, Mt. Pleasant Elementary students participated in their annual Field Day. The day kicked off with relay races in the morning, followed by a fun run/walk in the afternoon. Grades K-4 watched the fifth-grade classes battle in a tug-of-war.

In an effort to ease the transition to their new schools next year, students from Branch Brook visited the school they will attend next year when Branch Brook closes its doors. Branch Brook Principal Ireen Westrack was on hand for both building tours.

At Mt. Pleasant Elementary School, Principal Joseph Ierano shared a slideshow presentation of all the fun-filled annual events that happen at the school, giving them a sneak peek of what they can look forward to when they start in September. Mt. Pleasant’s fifth-grade helpers offered tours of the building and Branch Brook students spent some classroom time in their respective grade levels.

At Tackan Elementary School, Principal Dr. Allyn Leeds welcomed the new students for a tour of the building and spent time visiting each classroom. After the tours, students gathered back in the gymnasium for a question and answer session and received a Tackan T-shirt. A parent meeting was held on April 24 in each building to provide an opportunity to meet the staff, tour the building and answer questions.

The student council at Mt. Pleasant Elementary School celebrated the start of the spring season by tilling the soil in their community garden. Each grade level at Mt. Pleasant gets an area to grow vegetables, which will then be donated to the Smithtown Emergency Food Pantry. The student council members tend to the garden, harvest the crops and help deliver the vegetables to the food pantry.
