Camaraderie, teamwork and sportsmanship were the theme for the week at Shore Road School in the Bellmore School District as sixth graders represented different colleges in a series of competitions.

Each Shining Star Leader in sixth grade participated in two athletic competitions, ranging from a fitness relay, timed basketball shooting and a fierce volleyball tournament. Teams represented different colleges from across the country, building up their desire to come out on top after the games were settled. As they played in the gymnasium, teams’ flags and posters made by students showed off their represented school. They also prepared an original song, which was performed for judges. No matter the competition, the young athletes and artists all had the opportunity to step up and be a leader.

Fifth graders at Shore Road School in the Bellmore Public School District learned how clouds are formed through the relationship of air pressure and temperature during a special science unit on Dec. 14.

Students donned their lab goggles and gathered their necessary materials, including a bottle, thermometer and water. With guidance from science specialists Donna Migdol and Kathy Chapman, students observed whether a cloud formed in the bottle through several variables. They compared the differences in their observations when there was no water in the bottle versus with water. Air pressure was built by students squeezing the bottle. With water in the bottle, a more visible cloud formed as the pressure was applied. The hands-on lesson was completed through teamwork, as students took turns in groups to test the variables and record their findings.
