To address the safety and security of students and staff throughout the district, the Smithtown Central School District invited parents and community members to its spring Parent University School Safety Forum on May 7 at Smithtown High School West.
Superintendent of Schools Dr. James Grossane spoke about the safety and security practices in place including the visitor management system, security entrances and vestibules, security cameras and routine evacuation/fire/lockdown drills.
District, county and law enforcement representatives were on hand to discuss the district’s emergency planning and responses in the event of a threat to school safety. Jack Blaum, the district’s security consultant, and Joe Rizzo, chief of security, spoke about the district’s safety measures, practices and procedures. They addressed concerns about keeping buildings secure, preventative measures, fire evacuation procedures and ongoing security upgrades.
Assistant Superintendent of Pupil Personnel Services Mona Tobin addressed the audience regarding communication with parents and community members and reunification plans in the event of an emergency.
Showing off the many interactive, hands-on learning experiences available throughout the district, the Maker Space Club from High School East invited students and their families to Bull STEAM Ahead evening on April 20.
Maker Space activities ¬– with topics covering science, technology, engineering, art and math – were offered for students to experience. They checked out 3-D printing technology, made their own math origami, worked with circuits, videoed themselves on a green screen and used virtual reality glasses.
Technologies of the past also made an appearance, and some students had fun learning to use a typewriter. STEM professionals from local businesses were on hand to answer questions, and the Mechanical Bulls robotics team set up outside the cafeteria to showcase their creations. Admission was free with a nonperishable food donation, which the Maker Space Club will collect for a local food pantry.
Fourth-graders at St. James Elementary School celebrated the opening day of baseball by engaging in activities centered on the sport on March 29.
In the day filled with baseball-themed lessons, students listened to the famous comedy act “Who’s On First” by Abbott and Costello and had to answer questions about who was at each position. They read and answered questions about the poem “Casey at the Bat.” The fourth-graders listened to the song “The Greatest” by Kenny Rogers and discussed its lessons as a mindfulness/take away activity.
The student-artists designed their own baseball pennants and budding musicians wrote their own versions of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” to share with the class. For their hands-on science lesson, students predicted, tested and measured the bounce of a baseball, tennis ball, whiffle ball and golf ball.
Fourth-graders also honed their baseball skills during physical education classes and stretched their muscles in class during the seventh-inning stretch. Students read books about different baseball legends and practiced baseball-related math problems.
Dozens of classic nursery rhyme characters came to life on stage at Dogwood and St. James elementary schools on March 27 and 28 as the kindergarten students presented “An Adventure in Mother Goose Land.” The kindergartners performed first for the school, with an encore show for family and friends.
When Mother Hubbard loses her dog’s bone, she enlists the help of different characters to help find it. Along with Mother Goose, Mother Hubbard asks for help as kindergartners, dressed as their storybook character, come to the stage. At the end of the play, the bone is finally recovered by the mouse in the grandfather clock from “Hickory, Dickory, Dock.”
