Nickelodeon Television Network called on Nokomis Elementary School students for a special promotional event held at MTV Studios in Manhattan recently, where students engaged in a number of exciting challenges as part of the hit game show, “Double Dare.”

Three Nokomis students, Natasha Bogdanoff, Kaila Hazarian and Dana Stumpf arrived with their teachers, parents and Kidsday editor, Pat Mulloolly, at MTV Studios and were treated to interviews with original Double Dare host, Marc Summers, and the new host, Liza Koshy.

Following the interviews that serve as a component of their recent Kidsday reporting, students were asked to participate in the game, which consisted of trivia questions, physical challenges and an obstacle course.

Finishing first in the challenge, the Nokomis Kidsday reporters were rewarded by being covered in the unforgettable Nickelodeon green slime. 

Middle School Musicians Share Experience

Seneca Middle School music students shared their performance experience with fifth-grade musicians from Grundy Avenue, Merrimac, Nokomis and Tamarac Elementary Schools during the annual moving-up music visit. 

The visit was an opportunity for elementary students to become better acclimated to the various experiences they will encounter while practicing and performing on the middle school level. The fifth-grade students were able to ask the middle school musicians questions about their experience, including when they received their instruments, what extra music opportunities are available to them and how lessons are taught in a large group setting. 

Following the opportunity for questions, band and orchestra students separated into their respective ensembles for a large group performance that joined middle and elementary school students together. The band performed “The Great Gate of Kiev” by Modest Mussorgsky and the orchestra performed “Dragon Slayer” by Rob Grice.

Each Sachem middle school welcomes students from its feeder elementary schools for a similar music experience each year.
