Makerspaces Benefit Students After Test


To relax and decompress after their Spanish final last week, Ms. DiNome's seventh-grade Spanish classes participated in makerspaces in the library. They worked together to make a robot, color book marks and create Origami, to name a few. makerspaces provided the students with the opportunity to collaborate and use their creativity outside of the classroom.


Art on Display

Along with local artists and vendors, Advanced Placement Art students displayed their work at the East Rockaway Village Art Walk. This authentic opportunity for students was held on Friday, June 14 on Dock Street and invited community members to view beautiful artwork while listening to some amazing musical performances. Thank you to everyone who came out to support our students and their artistic endeavors.


Seventh Grade Book Tasting

Library Media Specialist Crystal Valentin, Middle School English teachers Jennifer Isik and Briar Falvo, and ENL teacher Caitlin Castellano collaborated on a summer reading event for all seventh grade students. In a culminating activity for the school year and to introduce the required summer reading assignment, a Book Tasting event in the newly transformed East Rockaway Jr./Sr. High School library was held. Students experienced a cafe experience, with music playing in the background, a menu of items to complete and a four-course book feast!

Tablecloths and a sign in the center of each table with the genres of Realistic Fiction, Biographies, Graphic Novels, Mystery, Fantasy, and Book Series were displayed. Students rotated after 7-minute intervals to experience a new genre and selection of books in at least four courses (Beverage, Appetizer, Entree, Dessert). After 5 minutes of silent reading, students recorded their thoughts/reactions, recommendations, and rating level. Students also eagerly shared their initial predictions and inferences with one another in their groups. They all left with a bookmark listing their top 3 choices for summer reading. Students were instructed on how to make an online book request from their local library to locate their book of choice. Seventh grade is ready for summer reading! Are you?

Café 217

Students working with Ms. Crowley, Ms. Ostrander and Ms. Mallor at ERHS are proud to announce the grand opening of "Café 217", which was a huge success! Staff members are invited to stop by our classroom, on select days and times, to place an order of hot or iced coffee or tea. The orders are taken, prepared, and served by our hard working students. Thank you to the East Rockaway Ed Foundation for providing the grant to make this possible!
