Seventh-Grade Math-A-Thon Goal Exceeded!

These students acquired sponsors and completed 5 pages of math questions, which were supplied by St Jude’s. Some of Stimson’s faculty and staff also contributed to help exceed our goal and raise a total of $2,429.50.

This year, under the leadership of middle school teacher Mrs. Victoria Corcoran, seventh grade Stimson students were invited to participate in the St. Jude Math-a-thon.  This is a program that benefits St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.  Unlike any other hospital, the majority of St Jude’s funding comes from individual contributions. And thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

All 7th graders were given an informational packet to bring home. If interested, they returned a permission slip (so participation was completely voluntary).  In total, 62 students agreed to participate. These students acquired sponsors and completed 5 pages of math questions which were supplied by St Jude’s. Some of Stimson’s faculty and staff also contributed. We exceeded our goal of $2,000 by raising a total of $2,429.50.  Great job Stimson!

Birchwood's Student Council President Daniel Ryan has started a bottle recycling collection to raise money for Maggie's Mission, dedicated to the memory of the beloved daughter of Donna and Steven Schmidt. “Through this organization, [Maggie’s Mission] we hope to fund research for not only Maggie’s cancer but other pediatric cancers too,” said Donna and Steven on their website www.maggiesmission.org.  “If we can help just one child, it will be worth it.”

If you have bottles from local stores and would like to donate them, please drop them off at Birchwood. Daniel and his family have been collecting and returning the bottles themselves. “This makes me feel good because I know that I’m part of helping a lot of other people,” said our active fifth grader who’s involved in Tri-Village Baseball, plays the Clarinet in the Band, is a member of Birchwood’s SBM, and a member of the Chorus and Safety Patrol.  Please help the environment and Maggie's Mission!

A Ziggurat was a temple complex and one of the economic centers of the cities in Mesopotamia. Our students perfect their presentation skills as to why their own Ziggurat was unique.

During the study of Mesopotamian civilization, Dr. Bullock's and Ms. Patino's Silas Wood classes designed replicas of religious structures called ziggurats using Tinkercad, a 3D Computer-Aided Design (CAD) software. Ziggurats would have been made out of sun-dried mud/bricks with the base used for grain storage and a temple on top. It would have been the most significant structure and located in the center of each city-state. Ziggurats are as emblematic of Mesopotamia as the great pyramids are of ancient Egypt. The sixth-graders designs that were voted best in each class were then three-dimensional printed and displayed in the hall. 

Summer Music & Arts Camps Are Back!

Please see below from Dr. Bennardo: 

Hi All,

A few weeks ago we distributed a Summer Music and Art Camp survey to every email address and newsletter site in the district. Our goal was to gauge student and parent preferences relative to summer music and art camp, in order to “test the waters” for a possible 2018 pilot program. Fortunately, last month’s survey results are proving quite helpful in that they provide a very clear window into community camp preferences. The majority of respondents indicated an overwhelming interest in some type of kindergarten through 5th grade art and ceramics experience. Survey participants also indicated interest in a 6th through 8th-grade band component, which will also include musical recording and jazz study.

The remainder of survey responses registered in the single digits and were scattered across the spectrum. As a result, there was no viable way to gather together groups large enough for sustainability in these other areas. Therefore, we have decided to pilot a K-2 art, ceramics, and musical experience camp, as well as a grade 3-5 art, ceramics, and photography session. We are also going to attempt to offer a grade 6-8 band, jazz, and musical recording camp. The camps will be two weeks in length and run concurrent to the first coding camp session (June 25th -July 6th). The middle school band, recording, and jazz camp will have one additional day on Monday, July 9th, which will be dedicated to a field trip experience. All camps will be held at Walt Whitman High School, from 8:30 to 11:30 AM on the above-mentioned dates, and participants can combine their days with afternoon wildcat sports offerings, as well as second session coding experiences.  

Registration for the music and art pilot camps will go live on April 2nd, 2018, and will be on the district website (shufsd.org). The registration process and participation costs will be identical to the coding camp, and we will conduct a count on May 1st, to determine if there are enough campers for this revitalized experience.

We ask that interested individuals register as quickly as possible so we can provide timely notice and secure the necessary staff.

We are excited about this opportunity and hopeful that a positive experience will lead to expanded summer offerings in the years to come.

Be well, 

Dave Bennardo

Birchwood’s SBM team hosted its fourth annual “Math” The Force Be With You!  Family Math Night event on March 27th.  The mathematical energy was adding up as Birchwood students and families played math games, explored math apps on the Ipads and completed grade level mathematical challenges.  The Star Wars theme music added to the fun while students and families rotated to their next mathematical “episode.” The games consisted of participants rotating among three rooms specific to their grade level, 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade, to play mathematical games including topics such as place value and multiplication.  Students shared a mathematical learning experience with family members as well as teacher volunteers to engage in a fun and exciting event!  Birchwood students, or special agents, completed all 3 episodes full of mathematical fun and won prizes, too! 

Phenomenal Freshman

Congratulations to our young and talented research stars Jasmine Thai and Matthew Kerner.

Walt Whitman’s Research Science Teacher Frederick Feraco has some exciting news to share. Two of his ninth-grade research 1 students have won the Molloy College Kathy Belton Science Fair!

Congratulations to Jasmine Thai and Matthew Kerner.

Jasmine’s research project takes us under the sea to Walt Whitman’s coral aquaculture system where she became fascinated with the pest like anemone known as an Aiptasia. These anemones are invasive in reef environments and Jasmine was interested in experimenting with methods of eradication. She carefully collected Aiptasia samples in our coral aquaculture system at school. She set up a controlled environment for her samples and used various methods for eradication. “She understood the scientific process very well,” said Mr. Feraco “Jasmine is in the process of redesigning her research based on her peer review feedback. I am excited to see what she plans next.”

Mathew’s award-winning research project takes us in the opposite direction from his fellow freshman. Mathew wanted to use his telescope so he went to meetings at the Astronomical Society of Long Island to get some ideas. After he expressed his passion to the club they decided to lend him a larger telescope and a diffraction grating, as well as a T mount to hold the camera. “With these tools, Mathew was able to map out his research and measure the elemental composition of stars with and without Exoplanets,” explained Mr. Feraco. “His research is ongoing and he hopes to explore more. Mathew has great potential and a passion for Astronomy.”

Walt Whitman High School continued its tradition of honoring students who qualify for the prestigious SAT/ACT Scholars Club Award designation. Based on SAT and ACT test scores, students and their families were honored with a breakfast at Walt Whitman's south cafeteria. The morning began with Whitman’s Supervisor of Guidance Mr. Jon Macaluso welcoming the special guests and honored students. "The students being recognized today are of the highest caliber academically and personally. I am particularly impressed with their ability to perform so well on these pressure-filled exams,” said Mr. Macaluso.  “The SAT's and/or ACT's serve as just one example of each student's intellect, and I am confident that they will all go on to pursue great things in college and beyond."

Honored guests were introduced including Board of Education President Mr. Nicholas Ciappetta and Vice President Ms. Laura Carey.  “Of all the events in our district, the SAT/ACT Scholars Breakfast best represents our commitment to academic excellence and quality preparation for the student in our charge,” said Mr. Ciappetta.  Superintendent Dr. David Bennardo commended the students before introducing Walt Whitman Principal John Murphy and Assistant Principal Jon Varlamos who called each up to congratulate and receive their certificate.

 "This accomplishment is a testament to the focus you have demonstrated over your high school career.  The dedication you have shown to ensure your academic success is something that should be praised and identified.  Not only do you bring great pride to our school and community but also to your parents who have been a support for you throughout your school career.  You personify the best Walt Whitman has to offer and leave us with the focus and dedication necessary to be successful in life's pursuits.” said Principal Murphy in his closing remarks.  

Principal Murphy thanked parents, families, teachers, and the people who inspired our students. “Although these students have worked hard to ensure their success, all of this could not have been possible without the help and support of their family,” added Mr. Murphy.   “The roles you have played in your children's lives have made them the wonderful human beings they are today.   Their triumphs are built upon your efforts and support.”

Silas students folded 17 large white paper cranes to represent the 17 people who died at Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, Florida. They then folded hundreds of rainbow-colored paper cranes to represent the hope that they have for a future filled with peace rather than violence.

Silas students will have a chance to win a large crane or a string of three small cranes by purchasing raffle tickets during lunch periods next month. All proceeds will be donated to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Library.

Congratulations to Walt Whitman senior Justin Wallace who took first place in the annual Brookhaven National Laboratory Bridge Building Contest on Monday, March 26th.

The construction and testing of model bridges promote the study and application of principles of physics and engineering and it also helps students develop "hands on" skills. Through participating, students get a flavor of what it is to be an engineer, designing structures to a set of specs and then seeing them perform their function.

The object of this contest is to design, construct and test the most efficient bridge built in accordance with the specifications. Model bridges are intended to be simplified versions of real-world bridges, which are designed to accept a load in any position and permit the load to travel across the entire bridge.

Way to Go Justin!

Four Perfect Pebbles Illustrates Tolerance and Positive Thinking

It takes someone very special to be able to keep close-to five hundred Stimson eighth-graders quiet and attentive for over an hour. Assistant Principal Anthony Sansotta introduces Mrs. Marion Lazan to this year’s eighth-graders.

“Be kind and good and respectful towards one another…that is the basis for peace,”- Mrs. Marion Lazan.

As part of Stimson’s Character Education Program, author and holocaust survivor Marion Blumenthal Lazan gave a moving first-hand account of her family’s life from imprisonment in Nazi concentration camps to liberation, for our eighth-grade students.

Marion’s story of courage, hope, and the will to survive, illustrates the importance of positive thinking, creativity, inner strength, and tolerance. “When I speak to my young audiences today, we talk about social media, and I ask them to use social media for good only, do not disparage others, do not intimidate others, and do not embarrass your friends,” said Mrs. Lazan.

Mrs. Lazan is the author of ‘Four Perfect Pebbles: A Holocaust Story, a memoir.’ She spoke of sensitivity and patience as she captivated Stimson’s eighth-grade audience. She stressed the importance of positive thinking to overcome adversity and asked our students to be tolerant of others and not stereotype individuals. “Be kind and good and respectful towards one another…that is the basis for peace,” added Mrs. Lazan.

This wonderful opportunity for our Stimson students to hear this first-hand account from a living Holocaust survivor was made possible by the PTA Cultural Arts Program.
