The district’s elementary and middle schools have been recognized as Distinguished Schools by Project Lead the Way for the 2019-2020 school year. 

For the fourth consecutive year, all seven of Smithtown’s elementary schools have been designated as Distinguished Launch Schools based on its PLTW Launch program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s elementary schools represent seven of only 11 in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 374 Launch schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.

For the third consecutive year, all three of Smithtown’s middle schools have been designated as Distinguished Gateway Schools based on their Gateway program in the 2019-2020 school year. Smithtown’s middle schools represent three of four in New York to be recognized. Across the United States, only 158 Gateway schools have received this distinction for 2020-2021.  

“This recognition is a result of the district’s continued commitment to providing all students with the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills through a STEM-based approach in the areas of biomedical science, computer science and engineering," said Paul Strader, assistant superintendent for curriculum and assessment.

Cereal Challenge Combines Community Giveback and STEM

The entire school community came together for a lesson that combined community service and STEM learning at Smithtown Elementary School on May 26.

As part of a recent Project Lead the Way lesson, fourth grade students learned about potential and kinetic energy. During the past few weeks, teachers, students and staff brought in cereal boxes to be donated to local organizations and food pantries. But, before they were donated, the students had a chance to apply their energy knowledge to create a cereal box domino chain.

Fourth graders engaged in the engineering design process, applying their knowledge of potential and kinetic energy conversion, as they created a chain of dominoes (cereal boxes) throughout the halls of Smithtown Elementary. The other grade levels came to watch the dominos fall and also explored other domino challenges in their classrooms. Each classroom was given a set of 1,000 wooden dominos and a corresponding set of domino challenges. During the challenge, the school collected more than 350 cereal boxes which will be donated to various food pantries in the community.
