Earlier this month, several residents of the Arbors Assisted Living facility at Bohemia traveled to Bosti Elementary School to work with students in preparing colorful Valentines to be sent to local veterans as a means of thanking them for their service to our country. “Today, our students gathered together with our Grandfriends to make Valentine’s for military veterans,” said teacher Emily Sciame.  “The Grandfriends highly enjoyed the opportunity to engage with our students, while assisting them in decorating these special Valentine Day greetings.”

Collaborations in Literacy

As a supplement to their literary studies, second- and fourth-grade students from Bosti Elementary School recently worked on a collaborative reading activity in the school’s library.

After reading engaging stories in their classroom, fourth-grade students from Linda Tabatchnick & Elizabeth Whitson’s classes met with second-graders from Diana Boyle’s class on to teach them about all of the important facts they learned.  

“The students learned about authors Eric Carle, Steven Kellogg, Kevin Henkes, Mo Willems, Cynthia Rylant and Helen Lester,” said library media specialist Annamarie Tongue. “Each student read several books by their author, and researched background information about each writer.”  

Edward J. Bosti Elementary School Principal Laura Kimball also participated in the activity by reading and listening to the students interacting with one another.   

All Aboard the Polar Express

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.
