With proud parents in attendance in the auditorium, 20 fifth- and sixth-graders at Rushmore Avenue School were inducted into the school’s 2018-19 Student Council. Carle Place Superintendent of Schools David Flatley joined advisers Elizabeth Cottell and Julie Santoro in administering the oath of service to the school’s newest leaders. Mr. Flatley and Rushmore Ave. Principal Catherine Silletti then presented each inductee with a customary student council pin. 

According to Ms. Silletti, serving on Student Council helps bring to life the sense of community that is being established in school. 

“These are your first steps in public service…and hopefully they will not be your last,” said Ms. Silletti, as she congratulated the new inductees. 

Rushmore’s Student Council organizes various charitable activities throughout the year, including a food drive, an ALS fundraiser and a holiday toy drive. This year’s group is comprised of representatives from each of the fifth- and sixth-grade classes who represent the interests of the entire school. To be chosen, each candidate must write a speech explaining why he or she can be relied on as the voice of the Rushmore student body.

Students and staff at Rushmore donated almost 30 boxes of books, which will be distributed to people in need throughout the New York metropolitan area. A great big thank you to all those who donated and continue to create lifelong learners!

In observance of Unity Day on Oct. 24 the district hosted activities designed to promote compassion and togetherness, while encouraging all to take a stand against bullying. Students and staff at all three schools wore the color orange, the designated color that signifies unity against bullying. 

At Cherry Lane, students gathered for photos under the school’s “Bully-Free Zone” sign as a reinforcement of solidarity against bullying and other poor decisions. At Rushmore Avenue School, students created a Unity Puzzle comprised of pieces consisting of positive written messages of unity, upstanding and kindness. At Carle Place Middle/High School students signed the Unity Day Pledge, displayed proudly in the front lobby. Throughout the day, inspirational music and quotes were played over the school loudspeaker commemorating the cause and further solidifying the true meaning of the day.
