Students Promote International Peace

Fourth and fifth graders at Lee Road Elementary School participated in the International Day of Peace, an observance of the ideals of peace adopted by the United Nations and observed for the first time on Sept. 21, 1982.

 

During the week, the students discussed ways to bring about peace and read books on the topic, including Lauren Murphy Payne’s We Can All Get Along: A Child’s Book of Choices and Katherine Scholes’ Peace Begins with You. 

 

The students also decorated pinwheels for peace and wrote pledges to bring peace to their school and the world on dove-shaped paper. The doves and pinwheels were hung in the hallway. Also on display was a large dove cutout on which students signed their names to symbolize their pledge to further the cause of peace in the world.

Scores Tumble On New Standardized Test

Thursday, 15 August 2013 00:00

Educators assure parents

“new baseline” will pay off

Long Island students in grades three through eight saw their New York State test scores plummet by 40 percent compared to last year, but education administrators are telling parents not to fret because this year doesn’t compare to last year.

“The new Common Core assessments and standards are far different than anything New York State students have ever encountered; to compare the results from the Common Core to past exams would be a very unfair comparison,” said Dr. Charles Murphy, superintendent of the Island Trees School District. “These rigorous college readiness standards are far more complex than we ever imagined; in fact, New York State Commissioner of Education, Dr. John King wrote, ‘The change in test scores does not mean that students are learning less or that teachers and school are performing worse than last year.’,” added Murphy. “It’s the matter of more challenging assessments and a shift to a college readiness proficiency benchmark.”
