Move over CNN, The Miller Avenue School’s AP2G News Team has taken to the airwaves. Second graders in Mr. Robert Verbeck and Mrs. Patricia Schuchman’s class created a video that highlights the district’s upcoming blood drive in a creative and educational format.

Working under Mr. Verbeck’s supervision, the class presented the latest in a series of special reports, with students serving as news anchor and reporters, and supplemented with interviews with various school staff members including second grade teacher Mrs. Alice Steinbrecher, who chairs the blood drive slated for Thursday, April 28 from 3:15 to 7 p.m. at Wading River School.

“Mrs. Schuchman and I are most proud of this project and that the students are taking on a bigger and bigger role in planning, staging, and writing these videos,” Mr. Verbeck said. “They are really enjoying this and are learning a lot about teamwork and collaboration in the process.”

Students in Miller Avenue School’s Student Council welcomed a representative from Happy Tails Dog Rescue and two rescue dogs to the school. Ms. Gerri Stewart, Goofy and Connie, shared a thank-you with the students for their community service efforts. The second graders, along with advisers Mrs. Mary Anne Benz and Mr. Robert Korchma, presented additional fleece blankets that they made for the organization along with a check for $938.61.

Student Council students raised the money from running a pop-up shop for St. Patrick’s Day. Ms. Stewart thanked the students and advisers for bringing the organization’s attention to the school community as they continue their mission in rescuing animals, finding foster homes and eventually forever families for them.

Miller Avenue Students Visit Long Island Museum

What better way to connect with social studies lessons than to step back in time?

That is what Miller Avenue School second graders did when students visited the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook.

Mrs. Linda Burke and Ms. Renee Gilmore’s class visited the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook on April 1. As was the tradition, girls wore long dresses, aprons, shawls, boots and bonnets. Boys wore caps and suspenders and pulled their socks up over their pants to look like breeches.

According to Mrs. Burke, the students attended class in the Nassakeag School, a one-room schoolhouse built in 1877. They also learned about chores on the farm such as churning butter, turning hay and threshing wheat. They had lunch and outdoor recess at the museum, when they played old-fashioned games such as hoop rolling and a flying circles game. Afterward, they toured The Carriage Museum where they visited different galleries and learned about the story of transportation before the automobile.

“It was a wonderful day,” Mrs. Burke said.

Research on plants and flowers, water fun, osmosis and coastal pollution were just a sampling of the vast display of original scientific experiments conducted by K-2 graders as part of the Miller Avenue School annual science fair.

It was a fun family event that highlighted the student’s questions, hypotheses, procedures, investigations, analyses and conclusions.

The blue-ribbon winners were kindergartner Rebecca Tyler, first grader Everett Bannon and second grader Cameron Regini. The Shoreham-Wading River School District congratulates all its student-scientists.
