Sixth graders at Shore Road School in the Bellmore Public School District were visited by a special guest who shared insight on being a professional helicopter pilot for the Military.

Officer Medina is the uncle of student Julien Lluberes, who is in Jennifer Desmond’s class. He visited Mrs. Desmond’s and Carolyn Acevedo’s classes to share how he is a leader within the community and beyond. Officer Medina shared videos of various emergency rescues he performed while piloting and passed around equipment, including a helmet and night vision goggles, for students to get a hands-on experience. He also brought in life preserving vests, which were inflated by students to demonstrate how it’s used in an emergency.

Officer Medina’s talk was a memorable experience with a unique role model.

A young tree now stands at the front of the Winthrop Avenue building to the north of the main entrance. Students in the Advisory Council helped plant the tree, which was donated by the PTA, by each placing a ceremonial shovel full of dirt around the tree.

The tree will be a proud reminder for students to think with nature in mind throughout the year.

Students in Christina Colletti and Mary Beth Cammarata’s 4th grade classes at Winthrop Avenue Elementary School in the Bellmore Public School District recently put their knowledge of fractions to the test.

As a culminating activity, students were able to use their understanding of fractions learned in math to create a “Recipe for a Leader.” Tying in Bellmore’s core values and leadership principles, each child crafted a unique recipe card complete with ingredients and directions. For example, students used measurements such as a half cup of kindness, a sprinkle of dedication, and three-fourths teaspoon of integrity, just to name a few. The classes enjoyed this activity, especially when it came to taking a photo with all their relevant props.
