STEMming Through Summer

STEMming Through Summer Pic
Rising eighth-graders at HTH participated in a STEM Camp with science teacher Shannon Kelly. Students delved into the intricacies of the scientific method by learning how to develop hypotheses, differentiate between independent and dependent variables, and analyze data in order to support or refute hypotheses. Throughout the week, students experimented on Gummy Bears (What happens when Gummy Bears are placed in water?), Oreo cookies (Do DoubleStuf cookies actually have double the "stuff"?) and paper airplanes (Which airplane design is best for maximum flight distance?). On the last day of camp, students developed and conducted an experiment to determine the efficacy of different sunblocks.

Camp Read-a-Lot’s Camp Challenge is celebrating another year for first- through fifth-graders. The program, which strives to keep students engaged in reading throughout the summer months, is set to a Peter Pan theme this year. Students have been rotating through three stations, including character map development, guided reading, and learning songs from Peter Pan. To culminate the program, students will perform a short Peter Pan-inspired play with songs, which they have been practicing for each week.

Field to Be Named in Honor of Coach Britt

Field to Be Named in Honor of Coach Britt Photo
The Board of Education unanimously voted to approve the renaming of its football field to The Colbert J. Britt, Jr. Memorial Field at the July 11 meeting. The Board took the naming under consideration after receiving a petition from the community with more than 1,100 signatures.

A lifelong and respected member of the community, Mr. Britt cared deeply about the youth of Malverne/Lakeview. He was hired in 1972 as a physical education teacher at Howard T. Herber Middle School and remained there until his retirement on June 30, 2005. Mr. Britt coached many junior varsity and varsity teams during his time in the district and continued coaching for an additional ten years after his formal retirement. He served as a role model to students and was respected for his leadership abilities and determination in ensuring that all of his athletes succeeded both on and off the field.

Some of his most notable achievements include earning the 1990 Varsity Football Rutgers Cup Championship as well as training with 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist Derrick Adkins. He was responsible for beginning the Friendship Games, an annual track and field event, and was a charter member of the Lakeview Youth Federation.

Coach Colbert J. Britt died on Dec. 27, 2015. He is survived by his wife, Norma Britt, and their daughter Alma.

The dedication ceremony of the football field will be held on Saturday, Oct. 14 as part of the district’s homecoming festivities. All MHS alumni and members of the entire community are invited, and encouraged, to attend this momentous occasion.
