Rhame Avenue Elementary School second grade students in Ms. Maryann Raffaniello and Mrs. Deborah Iannico’s class and Mrs. Marissa Diamond’s and Mrs. Erin Kennedy’s classes got into the holiday spirit by listening to the story “Snowmen at Night.”

They wrote a story pretending they were a snowman or snowwoman at night by using their knowledge of personal narrative writing. Various Thinking Maps were used to help guide students’ thinking and writing process. Some of the creative activities the students pretended to do if they were snowmen or snowwomen included playing tennis with a frozen racket, dodgeball with a snowball or dance and twirl like a ballerina in the snow. They then illustrated their individual snowman/snowwoman with a winter snowy scene.

Rhame Avenue Elementary School students in Ms. Maryann Raffaniello’s class offered a helping hand this holiday season for children who face adversity by participating in the annual Scholastic Pajama Drive.

The students collected 15 pairs of new pajamas, which were donated to In Kind Donation in Bethpage. For every pair of pajamas donated, Scholastic donated a brand-new book to children affected by instability.

The district applauds the students for their efforts in this worthy cause.
