May Moore Starts Up Engines at Annual Safety Program

May Moore Fires Up Engines at Annual Safety Program

Students from May Moore recently learned all about fire safety with Deer Park Fire Department Assistant Chief Phil Scarfi and his team. Held annually in the district’s elementary schools as part of national Fire Prevention Month, Scarfi’s annual safety program also features an outdoor visit to one of the department’s fire trucks.



Six Second-Graders Serenade Board of Ed

Six Second-Graders Serenade Board of Ed

In honor of School Board Recognition Week in October, students and staff from each of the district’s buildings presented gifts of appreciation to each board member, recognizing the time and commitment they make to the school community.

One of the schools, May Moore, “adopted” trustee Donna Gulli Grunseich, whose children attended May Moore. Six May Moore second-graders – Sharon Offiah, George Montes, Kaitlyn Mosquera, Mohammed Rauf, Karina Salgado and Alexa Thiesen – presented Gulli Grunseich with flowers, a card created by the school’s art teachers that was signed by all of the May Moore students, and a specially made blanket in Deer Park’s colors of maroon and grey, portraying the school’s students. In closing, under the direction of music teacher Kristen Lombardo, the sextet of students serenaded the board with “Thank You Board, Thank You,” including kazoo solos.

 

Developing Deer Park’s Digital Innovators

Developing Deer Park’s Digital Innovators 2

Ten Deer Park teachers –the high school’s Katelyn O’Brien; John Heeg, Matthew Oleaga, Jon Steigerwald and Scott Surdi from Robert Frost; Michael Capobianco, Thomas Fitzmaurice and Lori Palopali of JFK; and Dana Grafstein and Sue Steinman from May Moore – were recently chosen to participate in the district’s new Digital Innovator Program. The goal of the program is to align classroom instruction with technology, rather than vice versa.

“In the past, teachers would often ask how to use a piece of tech in the classroom, rather than focusing on what the instructional goal or outcome is, and then using the technology to get there,” explained Christopher Kauter, the district’s administrator of instructional technology, who developed the program. “It’s been a lot of reflection and sharing.”

The Digital Innovator Program uses the SAMR Model of ongoing monthly collegial workgroup sessions to allow sharing multilayered ideas for technology use with peers and administrators, focusing on areas such as digital classrooms and storytelling, maker education, coding and curriculum development, and establishing learning spaces. The teachers also develop an action plan and pilot programs and software.
