As a highlight of their studies in business and economics within the social studies curriculum, fifth-grade students at Rhame Avenue and Centre Avenue Schools in East Rockaway recently hosted Entrepreneur Day.

For months, these dedicated students have been diligently preparing for this event. Each student designed and created an original product, developing a comprehensive business plan to market and sell their creations. This interdisciplinary project encompassed various skill areas, including creating business cards, composing advertising jingles, and designing logos, slogans, and websites for their products. In addition, the students manufactured their products and prepared to sell them.

On June 11th and 12th, parents and community members were invited to explore each student's store and purchase products using a QR code scanned with their cell phones.

Entrepreneur Day was a resounding success, providing an enjoyable and invaluable real-world experience for our students.

The winners of the annual school-wide Poetry Madness competition were honored at the Board of Education meeting on May 29th.

The Poetry Madness competition, conceived by former English teacher and poetry and basketball enthusiast Ginny Sievers, challenges ERHS students to write original poems based on a chosen theme each year. The submitted poems are evaluated by judges from the English department in a tournament-style format inspired by the NCAA March Madness, starting with 64 entries and progressing through rounds to the top 32, Sweet 16, Elite 8, and the Final 4.

This year's champion was Sugar Constant with her poem “Cyanide,” and the runner-up was Kaylin Vizelter with her poem “Caffeine.”

At the Board of Education meeting, Kaylin Vizelter received enthusiastic applause after reading her poem to the attendees. Although Sugar Constant was unable to attend, a recording of her reading her winning poem was shared.

Congratulations to both winners!
