Experiments in Action

In conjunction with Davison Avenue’s third-grade curriculum, students had the opportunity to dissect sterilized owl pellets courtesy of the T. Roosevelt Sanctuary. The experiment allowed students to discover what owls eat by comparing what they dissected against a chart of the bones of the prey animals that owls typically feed on.

iMalverne Parent Academy

On January 8th, our much anticipated parent Academy titled iMalverne was held in the HTH auditorium. After opening remarks from our Assistant Superintendent, Mrs. Rose Ricca, parents and community members were given the opportunity to experience how technology is being incorporated in the classrooms through the use of iPads, apps, and engaging websites. Wearing their iMalverne blue shirts, teachers from each of our four buildings took the audience on a hands-on journey of some of the applications and tools that our faculty and students use every day. All participants were given a school iPad to use during the presentation, and were treated to some delicious and much needed hot coffee and cake on this cold night.

Model UN

Seventeen students from Malverne High School’s Model UN Club recently participated in the December Model United Nationals Conference, which consisted of more than ten schools and more than 350 students. Each “delegate” was given a country and then had to emulate the United Nations, working together to solve world problems in a variety of different conferences. Congratulations to Jewell Stewart, who was one of only three students in his conference to earn the designation of “Honorable Delegate.”

Science Sanctuary

Third-grade students at Davison Avenue were visited by the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary. Presented by Julie Nelsen, the program was about Animal Adaptation and coordinated with the science curriculum. While walking around to show each animal, Ms. Nelsen spoke about the different adaptations and even let the students witness a turtle race.

World Holidays

Prior to the holiday break, kindergarten students at Downing were studying holidays around the world. Pictured are students celebrating Sweden’s St. Lucia Day, where they made crowns and had Lucia buns as a snack.

Honors Ensemble

Two students from Malverne High School have been selected to perform in the 2015 NAfME All-Eastern Honors Ensembles. Tenor Conrad Stewart and alto Jordan Tyson were two of only 350 students in the eastern region of the United States who were chosen to perform in the mixed chorus group for the ensemble that will perform in April.

Songs of the Season

Prior to the holiday break, the MHS Carolers and Brass Band visited Davison to sing carols. Members of the Davison Avenue Leadership Squad, which is comprised of fifth-grade students, joined in to perform “Deck the Halls.” The group visited various areas of the school so that all the students could enjoy some sounds of the season.
