Shore Road School students in the Bellmore Public School District joined with visitors from John F. Kennedy High School for a series of challenging physics-related activities.

Organized by JFK student Rani Sharma, high schoolers in the foundations of engineering class stopped by Shore Road on May 20 to host the fun and engaging activities. Rani designed three challenges that had Shore Road Shining Star Leaders gather in teams to complete the task at hand. Towers of spaghetti rose higher and higher supported only by tape with a marshmallow on top. Using different snack ingredients, students also designed an efficient rover to explore the surface of Mars. Additionally, paper launchers were made from straws and paper to see which students can send their objects the farthest. Visits from older peers are regularly made through various programs that show Shore Road students how they can step up as leaders in the future.

Rising Star Leaders at Reinhard Early Childhood Center in the Bellmore Public School District who will soon move up to a new school celebrated their excitement on May 17.

The entire second grade class gathered in the gymnasium for an active session of line dancing. Grooving alongside their peers, second graders followed dancing instructors to dance to the beat of the music. Some dancers also led the way in front of their peers. Afterwards, second graders excitedly went outdoors to jump and climb on Reinhard’s playgrounds. There, they received ices to sweeten the day. Next school year, second graders will move up to third grade at Winthrop Avenue School.

Winning Star Leaders at Winthrop Avenue School enjoyed a bright, sunny day on May 7 as they worked together to plant a new tree on the school grounds.

A young Crape Myrtle tree was donated by the PTA and planted with the help of maintenance crew member Brian Gerber. Winning Star Leaders carefully lifted piles of fresh soil to place around the base of the tree, giving it a space of its own to freely grow. The tree is the newest addition among other trees planted by classes in years past. There are plans to further beautify the grounds by adding new greenery.
