Showcasing collaborative creativity, Harborfields High School’s National Art Honor Society students displayed their work at the ninth annual NAHS 6x6 Collaborative Art Installation. The exhibition took place on May 18 at the Heckscher Museum in Huntington.

Co-founded in 2014 by art teachers and NAHS advisers Jeanie Ritter of Harborfields and Rosemarie Elder of Plainview-Old Bethpage John F. Kennedy High School, the 6x6 project seeks to encourage NAHS students to connect, collaborate and create. Allyson Uttendorfer, NAHS adviser for Half Hollow Hills High School East, joined the project in 2015, with the three teachers serving ever since as 6x6 Collaborative coordinators. Other high schools participating in 2023 included Babylon, Cold Spring Harbor, Hicksville, Massapequa, Northport-East Northport and Syosset.

Numerous deserving students were recognized at Oldfield Middle School’s annual All-Star Awards Breakfast on May 16. Each student was introduced with words of praise from the teacher that had nominated them.

The All-Star Awards are designed for students who may not be eligible for more traditional awards. Nominees typically have made small strides throughout the year, achieved personal goals or academic gains, shown overall positive attitude or overcome hardships to meet with their own level of success from an academic, social, emotional or behavioral standpoint.

“These awards are our opportunity to recognize the contributions of our students at every level – their character, effort and attitude,” guidance counselor Dahlia Roemer said.

Samantha Little’s fourth-grade class at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School recently earned a reward for a camping day. Each student had a “tent.” They colored in a camping scene and then wrote spooky stories to share. They made s’mores using solar energy, engineering their own solar oven to heat their tasty treats. The fourth graders also painted pet rocks, created an “All About My Pet Rock” worksheet and kept their “pets” with them during the day.

“The kids had a great time,” Little said.
