Roslyn children 6 years and under are finding a new way to have fun. That’s due to the mid-summer opening of the dreamy play space and learning center called Kidville at 250 South Service Rd., Roslyn Heights, a place easily accessible from nearby towns and villages.
“We have more than 250 members who not only come from all areas of Roslyn, but also Williston Park, Oyster Bay Cove, Syosset, Jericho, Merrick, Long Beach, Oceanside and Forest Hills,” said Kidville Manager Brittany Sage.
The Long Island Alternative Education Association held its first annual conference on Saturday, Oct. 5 at Roslyn High School. Teachers and administrators from 18 school districts in Nassau and Suffolk, and others from as far as Albany, were represented at the conference, which provided networking, professional education and support for professionals involved in alternative education. The daylong program featured speakers from all over the United States, including keynote addresses delivered by highly regarded experts in the field of alternative education.
The Physical Education Department at Harbor Hill School in the Roslyn School District received a grant from the Michelle Obama “Let’s Move Initiative” program. As a result of the grant, students in third grade are participating in the 100 Mile Club and running or walking laps during the week to move 100 miles each by the end of the school year. Students have their cards hole punched for every lap they make.
This year, the Roslyn High School football team is having a banner season. But the Marching Bulldogs band is also in fine form, recently finishing first in their group at the US Bands Competition hosted by Manhasset High School.
The theme of this year’s show was the “Sound of Music” and was comprised of scores from that legendary musical production. The band performed with its usual high energy, one that was complimented by its dancers and color guard. The band’s components made for a spectacular performance as the Marching Bulldogs received their highest score of the year while on the way to the first place score.
Roslyn High School had a grand reopening of their school store on Sept. 16. The store is managed by Roslyn’s Distributive Education Club of America (DECA) students under the guidance of business teacher Sallykaye Kaufman.
DECA officers interviewed Life Skills and ESL students for positions in the store. Each prospective employee filled out an application and received a list of interview questions so they could prepare in advance. This enables the Life Skills students to interact more fully with the overall student body and helps the ESL students practice their English language skills in a workplace environment. It also provides the Life Skills class a chance to prepare for jobs in the community by offering an opportunity to engage in proper social interaction and solving job specific situations.
