Happy St. Patrick's Day, Stony Brook Vets Home!

Mount students strike again, this time sending well wishes to our local vets many different ways!  Ms. Lachler's First Grade Class made leprechauns and a pot of gold (cookies) to let the vets know they are "more precious than gold." 

Ms. Silverman's class made a class book of poems and limericks to share with the vets, while Mr. Rotunno's third graders made some beautiful watercolor paintings!  A representative from the vets home said, "The residents will be so happy!"


Valentines for the Vets

2nd grade students in Ms. Kenny, Ms. Fizzuoglio, and Ms. Pushee's classes made Valentines to be delivered to the Stony Brook Veterans Home!

‘Annie’ Captivates Audiences


W.S. Mount Elementary School fifth- and sixth-grade student-actors took to the stage this May to perform the beloved musical “Annie Jr.”

The students rehearsed under the guidance of directors and teachers Gretchen Tranchino and Daniel Hayes since mid-November to perfect the show’s dialogue and musical numbers as well as learn complex dance routines with the help of teacher and choreographer Lauren Horn. In addition to the actors on stage, several students worked behind the scenes as members of the stage crew with the help of teacher Melissa Levenson.

From the opening number to the familiar songs in between, including “It’s the Hard Knock Life” and “Tomorrow,” the show was a hit with all ages. The cast of approximately 55 students performed the musical during one daytime and two evening shows for packed audiences.


Top Mathematicians

W.S. Mount Elementary School’s Math Club defended their award-winning reputation this May by shining brightly at the ninth annual Suffolk County Math Tournament held at Stony Brook University.

During the event, 66 teams comprised of 330 students in fourth through sixth grade competed. Awards were given to the top three teams, and individual awards were given to the top 10 competitors. As a result of their determination, the Mount Math Masters’ two teams were awarded first and second place in the competition. In addition, Mount students were awarded seven of the 10 available trophies for individual excellence.

The district congratulates the following students and their coach, Linda Earls, on this remarkable achievement: Neal Carpino, Matthew Chen, Ivan Ge, Alexander Lin, Carolyn Lin, Ashwinaa Vaithianathan, Jacqueline Wu, Claire Yang, William Zhang and Ari Zucker.

Recycled Projects

W.S. Mount Elementary School third-graders put their creativity to the test when they invented a variety of projects using recycled materials.  
From paper towel rolls, plastic water bottles, discarded wood and a slew of other materials, the students created such projects as a floatation device, birdhouse, desk organizer and even a Nok Hockey board.

The classes proudly displayed their completed projects in a hallway museum and embarked on a recycled scavenger hunt. During the hunt, the students located projects based on the materials used and described which craft was their favorite and the supplies used to create the piece.

Wild About Nature

W.S. Mount Elementary School kindergarten students learned about a wide variety of animals during a school workshop with Nature Nick.

During the interactive program, the students had the chance to observe and learn about such animals as a kangaroo, snake and a monkey. With a connection to their classroom curriculum, they enhanced their understanding of these animals’ physical characters, habitats and diets.

Growing Awareness

W.S. Mount Elementary School third-grade students in Robert Rotunno’s class turned a simple writing exercise into a creative awareness project for a cause near and dear to at least one classmate’s heart – ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

The writing project called for the students to explain what they would do with $100 and several noted they would gift it to charity. Patrick Scali, the grandson of ALS advocate and Ride for Life creator Chris Pendergast, educated his peers about ALS and the class moved to turn the creative writing initiative into reality.

Each student contributed to raising $100 for ALS research and helped to plant a tulip garden dedicated to spreading awareness of the cause in the school’s bus circle.

“It feels really good to support and help those in the community affected by this disease,” said Patrick. “I hope when people see the garden they are inspired to learn more and find their own ways to help.”
