In late December, faculty and staff members of the Bosti Elementary School community welcomed family and friends to the annual Polar Express reception featuring the school’s pre-K students.
Thanks to the efforts of Nichole Johnson and her colleagues, the school’s atrium was adorned with a giant-sized bell hanging from the ceiling, as well as a locomotive passenger car and tables adorned with images surrounding a railroad theme. The students were joined by their family members as they took part in singalongs and indulged in tasty treats.
Prior to the big celebration, the young students gathered in their classrooms for a reading of the classic holiday book. The story is about a young boy who takes a magical adventure to the North Pole, and comes to believe in the possibilities and wonders, of the holiday season.
Additionally, the last part of the morning presentation included a visit from very special friend, Santa Claus, who came prepared with books and treats for the children.
Students, teachers, friends and family of the Bosti Elementary School community recently gathered in the Oakdale-Bohemia Middle School’s gymnasium to enjoy the 2018 edition of the school’s annual “O-Town Circus Academy.”
In preparation for the big performance, fifth-grade students worked for two weeks in their physical education classes to learn the special “circus” skills required to entertain their fans. They learned skills for clowning, juggling, stilt walking and mastering the Diabolo Sticks.
Edward J. Bosti Elementary School Principal Laura Kimball would like to thank O-Town Circus Academy coaches Andrew and Ray, along with the school’s physical education instructors Tara West and Michael Oldis and the Edward J. Bosti PTA for making this program available to the community.
Pre-K students from Bosti Elementary School recently enjoyed the annual Fall/Thanksgiving Festival which included games, navigating a 'corn' maze, crafts and tasty snacks. Many of the students and staff members were dressed in colorful fall outfits to celebrate, and festive banners were displayed throughout the building to illustrate how thankful we should all be for our families and friends.
