Pairing up for Interactive Reading Activity

Centre Avenue students were decked in cozy holiday attire for the school’s annual “Snuggle Up With a Good Book” reading activity.

Different grade level students partnered up for the schoolwide event, which kicked off the holiday break. Lower grade level students were tasked with selecting a book that was then read to them by upper grade level students they were paired with. In addition to wearing comfortable pajamas, students also brought in stuffed animals to snuggle up to during the reading. 

A variety of exciting books were read throughout the school, including “The Berenstain Bears and Too Much TV,” by Stan and Jan Berenstain, “Double Trouble Monsters,” by Debbie Dadey and Marcia Thornton Jones, “Going to the Firehouse,” by Mercer Mayer, and more.

Grinch Day introduces fun learning

Grinch Day introduces fun learning
First-graders at Centre school were all smiles during their Grinch Day celebration, as students engaged in Grinch inspired assignments that initiated teamwork and hands-on activities.

This included solving problems in their Grinch math book, practicing subtraction facts while playing a Grinch board game, learning about cause and effect through a science experiment, and using hand lenses to search for adjectives. Students completed the fun day of learning with a writing craft activity.

Performing for Village

The East Rockaway Music department participated in this year's village tree lighting. The Elementary Chorus, Senior High Jazz Band and Senior High Chorus all performed for the crowd. Directors, Mrs. Jessica Salaway, , Mr. Pete Ceglio and Mrs. Seanna Silver were proud to have their groups perform along side many others from the community. The cold temperatures were no match for the warm holiday spirit of the event.

Treats for Troops

The K-Kids at Centre Avenue recently organized a candy drive for Treats for Troops. Centre families donated Halloween candy and K-Kids wrote letters to thank those brave men and women serving the country. Soldiers at Fort Drum in upstate, New York, took pictures of themselves posing with the boxes of treats and student letters.

Students Perform Word Surgery

The students in Mrs. Rottkamp's second-grade class at Centre Avenue School completed a "text feature surgery." After reading their Scholastic News, the students identified the text features they found and then cut and glued the text features in the correct places. Second-graders finally completed a "post-op report" by identifying the purpose of the text features.
