    Throughout the District, elementary-level students enrolled at Brookhaven, Kreamer Street and Verne W. Critz elementary schools, as well as Frank P. Long Intermediate School, celebrated Dr. Seuss’ March 2 birthday with literacy activities to strengthen their reading and writing skills.

    In addition to extensive literacy lessons, Verne W. Critz students participated in a weeklong list of fun activities to recognize their love of reading and writing. On “The Cat in the Hat” Day, students wore crazy hats and headbands to demonstrate their love of reading. Students also brought to school a favorite stuffed animal or animal figure to participate in “Put Me in the Zoo” Day, dressed in mismatched clothes or a wacky hairdo on “Wacky Wednesday,” and wore green clothing on “Green Eggs and Ham” Day. The week culminated with Drop Everything and Read Day in which students and faculty spent the final half hour of the school week reading their favorite books or a group story.

    The monthlong study of Black History culminated in a day of fun and diverse educational activities for Brookhaven Elementary School students. On Feb. 28, each of the grade levels teamed up to provide students with opportunities to review the information they garnered during the month and to learn additional skills related to this annual celebration of diversity.

    On the second-grade level, students were instructed in African dance by teacher Stefani Nolde and select student-dancers. As the classes rotated through stations, they participated in faculty read alouds of books including “Henry’s Freedom Box” and “Follow the Drinking Gourd.” The students also matched the names and historical descriptions of successful black Americans including Jackie Robinson, Harriet Tubman and Ruby Bridges. Third-grade students, who were also instructed in dance, listed words that describe favorite and notable African-Americans. The students wrote one word on paper strips describing the significant impact these individuals had on the country. The strips were then collected and placed on a bulletin board in the hallway.

    “Today we celebrate the African-American diaspora,” Ms. Nolde said. “There has been a lot of culture and beauty that came out of it.”

    Students at Brookhaven, Kreamer Street and Verne W. Critz elementary schools are focusing on eating wholesome food to fuel their bodies during the schools’ annual Nutrition Safari. Sponsored by Whitsons Culinary Group, a food service company hired by the district, the experience assists students in choosing healthy meals and eating.

    During the event at Brookhaven Elementary School, Grant the Gazelle visited students during lunch and helped them choose healthy snacks from the menu, including carrots, apples and yogurt. “Ranger” Diane Murphy, who runs the program, said the program is geared as a fun way to promote healthy eating. At the end of lunch, students received a “Color in the Safari Friends” coloring packet to reinforce the basic food groups.

    Hilde the millipede, Gertrude the box turtle, Ludwig the ball python and Dusty the chinchilla were the subjects of an important lesson on the basics of biodiversity at Brookhaven Elementary School.
     
    During a visit with New York Department of Environmental Conservation educator David Pomerand, the first-grade students learned the importance of protecting the environment through discussion of animal habitats and behavior. They discussed the characteristics of invertebrates, reptiles and mammals and how their animal guests resembled and differed from one another. The students even had an opportunity to pet the animals.
