Schools: Pet Supply Roundup, Music Success

The Cold Spring Harbor Central School District Board of Education has recognized eight  student-musicians. Four students were chosen to perform at the Eastman School of Music during the New York State School Music Association (NYSSMA) Winter Conference in early December. Four students were selected as alternate musicians.

 

The Harborfields Pet Awareness Club at Harborfields High School recently partnered with the district’s three other schools – Oldfield Middle School, Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School and Washington Drive Primary School – for the club’s annual Howliday Pet Supply Drive. “Once again the generous Harborfields community came through for our four-legged friends,” said Dan Barrett, the club’s co-adviser along with Jule Rosen. “These supplies not only go to shelters and rescue programs, but also to community food banks that help people who are struggling financially.” Photo by  Harborfields Central School District.

Working with reading teacher Kristen Schaefer, students at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School in the Harborfields Central School District recently used the Joanna Kalafarski book “Dinosaur Fleas” to compare and contrast dinosaur fleas and the fleas of today. “They really used their comprehension skills to determine the main idea and find the supporting details,” Principal Mary Williams said.
