In addition to doing 10 sets of 10 exercises at the 100th minute of the100th day, students also manipulated numbers to make 100. Second graders from Mrs. Mary Donnelly’s class wore shirts with numbers and then used addition and subtraction to create true number sentences that equal 100. Ms. Katherine Hesterberg’s kindergarten students displayed posters of 100 items organized in groups, which demonstrated an understanding of place value. Mrs. Theresa Collalto’s first graders added pizza toppings to their slices of pizza and displayed them with fractions and percentages.

High school students in the Med Tech club and their advisers Mrs. Lauren Palma and Mrs. Lorayne Feit participated in this year’s SPARK! Northwell Health Challenge virtually.

This year’s topic was Healthcare Heroes - COVID Edition, which spotlighted many of the key roles, both clinical and non-clinical, that were invaluable during the pandemic. The event featured a virtual career day where students heard from family medicine physicians, emergency room physicians, physician’s assistants, nurses and emergency medical technicians. Students were able to preview these career paths through a COVID-19 lens. The career day included engaging presentations by professionals in the field, as they shared some of the greatest challenges faced during the pandemic.

Following the career day, students cultivated essential skills, such as teamwork and communication, by working together on a group project. The student team will showcase their work to all event participants and judges at the virtual SPARK! Challenge contest in April.

Lunar New Year was in full swing at Cherry Lane school, as kindergartners celebrated the year of the Ox by learning about the holiday’s traditions.

They learned that those who participate in these festivities clean out their homes, wear red and eat special foods, such as oranges, as a symbol of good luck. Students were also introduced to the Kamishibai, which is the ancient art of Japanese theater and storytelling. They listened to the story about how the Chinese zodiac animals are placed in the order that is now known.
