‘Spin, Pop, Boom!’ Presentation Wows Student Scientists

Students at Waverly Avenue Elementary School stepped inside the world of science during an assembly called, “Spin, Pop, Boom,” presented by Mad Science. Students learned all about chemistry and reactions through exciting experiments and demonstrations.

Student volunteers stepped up to the lab table in front of the audience to learn about acids, bases and chemical reactions through hands-on activities. They watched Styrofoam cups melt in their hands, lids pop off of plastic cannisters thanks to an Alka-Seltzer reaction and even created “elephant toothpaste” by mixing hydrogen peroxide and soap.

Festive Fun in Sachem

Three photos of students making ginger bread houses thumbnail238685

Our Sachem schools are in the holiday spirit! Across our buildings, students have been participating in festive, hands-on activities.

At Waverly Elementary School, second graders invited their families to join them to make gingerbread houses. Students used frosting to glue graham crackers to milk cartons. They decorated their houses with different kinds of candy and took them home to enjoy.

Nokomis Elementary School third graders also participated in holiday treat decorating. Principal Denise Kleinman first read the story, “Snowmen at Night” before students joined their family members to make gingerbread men. 

The activities are gearing students up for the holidays and getting them excited about the upcoming break!

Students at Waverly Elementary School planted peace promises around the building’s grounds. Students at each grade level received daffodil bulbs with a paper peace promise attached. They wrote pledges of things they would do to make for a positive school year. For example, some students pledged to give other compliments, be kind, use positive words and pick up garbage. Pre-K through fourth graders planted the front of the building along Waverly Avenue and fifth graders planted near the main entrance, around the Sue Finnerty Memorial Garden.

In the springtime, these daffodils will bloom to beautify the school, but also to remind students of their peace pledges. The schoolwide activity brings the building together while creating a positive school environment and culture of caring.
