Exploring Ancient History

Our sixth graders took a field trip to the Metropolitan Museum of Art where they were fully immersed in 5,000 years of Egyptian history!

Highlights included The Temple of Dendur, which was completed in 10 B.C. by the Roman emperor Augustus. Plus, they saw mummies, ancient statues and other artifacts and took part in activities as part of the tour. They even learned to walk like an Egyptian!

Thanks to the Met staff and our teachers for the amazing experience!

The Board of Education congratulates the winners of the Andrew J. Stern Memorial Essay Contest. This annual contest honors East Rockaway Class of 1978 alumni Andrew Stern who was killed during the terrorist attacks on Sept. 11, 2001. It is run by members of the Stern family who attended the meeting and presented the awards.

The contest winners:
Kirsten Carman (high school category)
Nathan Jaramillo (junior high school category)
Ava Dauro (elementary school category)

Each year, students are asked to submit an essay based on a specific topic or reflection relating to 9/11. This year the question was “if you were a teacher, what are the three most important things that you would teach your students about 9/11?”

The presentation was livestreamed on the BOE website. You can watch the presentation and hear the students read their essays below.
