Last month, educators from the Dolan DNA Learning Center, the world’s first science center devoted entirely to genetics education, were at St. Dominic Elementary School. The Learning Center is an operating unit of the Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory. The educators worked with the students in grades 4, 5, and 6. They used the new science lab and presented lessons on cells, traits, and heredity. The students used the DNA lab’s state-of-the-art microscopes and other equipment that enabled the students to participate in many experiments.
The students in grade 4 made animal cells out of gelatin and different dried beans. The gelatin represented the cytoplasm and the different beans represented the various organelles.

They have excelled in sports, academics, and extracurricular activities.

OBHS Junior Laurel Dorfman performed at Lincoln Center as part of her HaZamir choral group on Sunday, March 17.
Each year all HaZamir chapters learn the same repertoire at their weekly local rehearsals and then come together for an annual three-day festival that culminates in a performance at a major concert venue such as Carnegie Hall or Lincoln Center. These HaZamir performances have been nothing short of magical. They are a unique platform for presenting contemporary and classic Jewish choral music to an expanding audience.”
