High School East Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, under the guidance of advisers Connie Smith and Jaclyn Fettinger, hosted a virtual fruits and veggies challenge in March for National Nutrition Month.

The challenge was open to all students in Dogwood, Tackan, St. James and Mills Pond elementary schools in the Smithtown Central School District. Students tracked the amount of fruits and vegetables they ate during the month. The FCCLA chapter members kept track of their accomplishments and posted weekly updates and inspirational videos for the students. 

The three participating schools ate a total of 6,008 servings of fruits and vegetables. A top class was named in each school: Ms. Baker’s class at Mills Pond Elementary, Ms. Horsfall’s class at St. James Elementary and Mr. Korba’s class at Dogwood Elementary. Mr. Korba’s class was named the top class out of all three schools. Each student who participated received a prize for their efforts and the top classes received a certificate and bracelet.

Dogwood’s Literacy Fair Sparks Love of Reading

Dogwood’s Literacy Fair Sparks Love of Reading thumbnail182286

To coincide with its annual Parents As Reading Partners celebration of reading, Dogwood Elementary School held a literacy fair in March. Students in kindergarten through fifth grade showcased their favorite book in a unique way. The students could present the book in any manner they chose; some created posters, models, cereal boxes and dioramas. The idea is to give students a host of ideas to spark their love of reading as well as encourage them to try new books and genres. The fair is displayed by grade level, and each class visits the different tables throughout their tour of the fair.
