In celebration of all of the wonderful initiatives they took part in this school year, students enrolled in the district’s C-Quest program recently invited their family members to Bosti Elementary School for the school’s annual C-Quest Showcase event.
With assistance from advisers Lisa Manzo and Kevin Keane, the students were joined by their proud family members as they displayed all of the hard work they put into their projects while attending C-Quest.
The students’ work was on full display for their guests, showcasing their in-depth research topics which highlighted the anatomy and lifestyle of the frog, and the history of motor vehicles and what they can be expected to look like in the near future.
Lining both the classroom walls and surrounding hallway area were student-projects from the school year, including their fun and creative biographies, along with an art project in which they beautifully created paintings of panda bears.
The district’s C-Quest program is dedicated to enhancing the educational experience of fourth and fifth grade students. Based at Edward J. Bosti Elementary School, C-Quest services the needs of more than 100 students throughout the district.
As a culminating activity for National Autism Awareness Month, Edward J. Bosti Elementary School recently hosted their inaugural “Bubbles for Autism” event, as hundreds of students and staff members from the school community gathered in the back of the school to support autism awareness.
“As a sign of community and respect for students, family members and friends living with autism, members of our community gathered on the field in the outline of a large heart and blew soap bubbles,” said Bosti Elementary School Principal Laura Kimball.
Mrs. Kimball expressed her gratitude toward Nichole Johnson for coordinating the event, Joanna Zalewski and the “Recycling Rangers” for donating the bubbles, along with Michael Oldis, Jusin Maas and Mike Johnson for their invaluable help throughout the course of the day.
April is recognized as National Autism Awareness month, as schools and students across the country go above and beyond to promote autism awareness.
