Northport K-8 kindergartners in Melody Nieves’ classes completed an author study in the school’s Media Center recently as a culminating activity for their Dr. Seuss birthday celebration. Students listened to the story “There’s A Wocket In My Pocket” read by media specialist Lynne Gruszka, then participated in a rhyming word sentence structure activity. Students then modeled their sentences for the very enthusiastic group of learners. Pictured are the students, along with, from left, assistant Tyna Richards, Ms. Nieves and assistant Mrs. Cleveland.
The Oak Hammock Osprey Band, led by Director of Bands Amy Isenhower, performed the National Anthem at the New York Mets’ recent Spring Training game against the University of Michigan. This is the third time the group has performed at a Mets game as they are appreciated for their performances.
