District Representatives thumbnail247037
John Lewis Childs School student Sofia Dellagiovanna and Floral Park-Bellerose School student Emma Vlassis were selected to represent the district’s orchestra program by attending the 80th anniversary celebration of the Kolstein Music Center. According to orchestra teacher David Elyaho, both Sofia and Emma have demonstrated tremendous leadership skills within the orchestra, are always prepared for lessons, have consistently participated in NYSSMA at an above average performance level, and have been selected to perform with groups such as All-County and LISFA. In doing so, these two serious string music students were provided the opportunity to visit Alice Tully Hall at the Lincoln Center to watch the Children’s Orchestra Society’s (COS) annual Lincoln Center Concert on May 22. This performance is one that features some of the finest scholastic student musicians and the opportunity to attend is provided by Kolstein’s (in partnership with COS) in order to further nurture and encourage orchestra students.

John Lewis Childs School fourth graders recently culminated research and presentations on the school’s outdoor Pocket Prairie Garden. Created last spring, the garden grows native plants that once used to grow in the Hempstead Plains.

In their Discovery Lab lessons with Janice Hyland, the fourth grade classes were split into groups to research how to care for the garden, the specific flowers and grasses that grow in it, the history of the Hempstead Plains and benefits of the garden.

As the kindergarten classes recently released butterflies into the garden, they were invited to the Discovery Lab for the fourth graders’ presentations.

Spring has sprung in the JLCS Discovery Lab! Our second graders planted lettuce seeds in the lab’s hydroponic garden.
