Huth Road Elementary's Food, Toy Drive Benefits Neighbors Foundation - 2007

   The Neighbors Foundation of Grand Island provides a food pantry and offers aid to Grand Island families experiencing financial setbacks. The Foundation sponsored a Special Holiday Collection to be distributed by December 18th and Huth Road Elementary has participated in its food drive for many of years, establishing a reputation for its generosity. "For this year’s drive we have encouraged our students, teachers and staff to bring in toys, non-perishable food items, paper products, and personal care items for the week of December 6th -14th," a school spokesman said this week. "Our service club members made morning announcements to remind everybody about the food for families drive. We want to thank the students, parents, teachers and staff at Huth Road Elementary for making this year’s food drive a huge success!" she said.

   It’s a win-win situation when middle schoolers and elementary students can team up to benefit their larger community. And that’s exactly what happened during this holiday season between Mrs. Mary Jane Fonte and Mrs. Marcia McHenry’s Family and Consumer Science students at Veronica E. Connor Middle School and Mrs. Diane Lipp’s third graders at Huth Road Elementary School. The halls of the middle school were filled with the aroma of 1000+ freshly baked sugar cookies which the students prepared, wrapped and froze for the next step in the Interdisciplinary process. Mrs. Lipp’s students added the frosting, sprinkles and a little bit of love before selling them for the week of December 10th to the 14th to the students and faculty of Huth Road Elementary school. Thank you to everyone who donated the frosting, bags, and sprinkles for the fundraiser. What was learned by this exchange between schools? The eighth graders realized that, although they had graduated from elementary school, they could give back to others by using some of their culinary skill as well as profit from their Entrepreneurship projects to provide 90 dozen cookies. Consequently, the third graders learned to interact with their customers and put their math skills into action making change as they raised money for the 2008 Relay for Life event scheduled for the first Friday in June. And how fitting that this joint project should debut in the year of the newly announced Relay for Life theme: “Team Up For A Cure”! Last year the event sold over 2,200 cookies and made $1,208. "We are looking forward to another successful year!" a spokesman for the project said this week.

   Once again the summer 2007 reading program at Grand Island Memorial Library was a huge success. Students from Sidway, Kaegebein, and Huth Road Elementary schools participated in the New York State Summer Reading Program, in conjunction with the Grand Island Memorial Library. The theme this year was “Get a Clue at your Library and Investigate some good books.” The students were required to read eight books throughout the summer and return a completed form to school in September when school began.
   As a part of the Huth Road Elementary school’s summer reading celebration, 279 children from all grades were invited to a party where they enjoyed a tasty treat and played games. A big thank you to the Huth Road PTA as well as Mrs. Julie Estenoz, Mrs. Renee Akers, Mrs. Pat McMurray, Mrs. Reenie Peppers, and Mrs. Lauren Sutton for all of their help and support!
   Each year, the librarians and reading teachers from all elementary schools meet with Mrs. Anne Slater from the Grand Island Memorial Library to plan for the summer ahead. They are looking forward to planning yet another successful summer reading program in 2008.

Character Counts Program Reinforces Our Viking Values - 2007

These students have been nominated to receive the award for the Respect Character Trait.
Click photos for larger view.

   At the beginning of the school year Huth Road Elementary School implemented a new program called Character Counts. Overall it would reinforce the current Viking Values that are “Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be safe.” Each month a character trait is concentrated on such as respect, citizenship, fairness, trustworthiness, just to name a few. These topics will be discussed in the class room, on the bus, on the morning announcements and for the town meetings that are held each month in the auditorium. During this time, the children will have the opportunity to learn more about the character trait, by reading books, viewing a short video that models the trait and writing about the topic in the classroom. Each teacher then selects and writes about one student in their class who models the character trait the best. The 22 students get their picture taken and is displayed on our Character Counts wall of honor. This program is off to a great start and the modeled positive behavior is catching on very fast throughout the school and home for all of the students who attend Huth Road Elementary school.
   The following students have been nominated to receive the award for the Respect Character Trait. Pictured are the students listed alphabetically: Jordan Anthony, Brad Boreali, Joseph Boyko, Jason Buchannan, Julia Buscaglia, Andrew Carlson, Gianni Ford, Leah Geis, Ian Hardison, Joshua Hoy, Kimberly Huffnagle, Zane Johnson, Taylor Latvala, Joshua Less, Arthur Meaney, Emily Nobumoto, Gianna Novelli, Jake Schmidt, Emma Smith, Lindsey Supparits, Jessica Surace, and Anna Ungaro.

   The students at Huth Road Elementary School and Kaegebein Elementary recently had a wonderful opportunity to listen to the Beauty and the Beast Storytellers spin their tales and enjoy the art of storytelling. This program was part of the annual author visit organized by the librarians at Huth and Kaegebein, Ms. Vinnie Passanese and Mrs. Pat Rizzuto, and sponsored by the PTA.
   Beauty and the Beast Storytellers is a husband and wife team of Mitch Weiss and Martha Hamilton. Winning audiences and critical acclaim throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Asia since 1980, they are renowned for their work in teaching the art of storytelling, and are also award winning authors and recording artists.
   In preparation for their visit, students at both schools were exposed to literature and folklore from many countries around the world and participated in a variety of creative writing and storytelling activities. The authors spent a day at each school (April 3rd and 4th) where they gave four performances throughout the day, one for each grade level. At Huth Road, the librarian arranged a breakfast before school so teachers could mingle with the guest authors. An “Authors Luncheon” for students followed the morning presentations. Students in each class were asked to write an essay about why they would like to have lunch with the authors. One student from each class was selected to represent their class at a special lunch in the library with Mitch Weiss and Martha Hamilton.
    At Kaegebein, the authors enjoyed a luncheon with the faculty, and Kaegebein’s Girls’ Chorus, under the direction of Mrs. Renee Michki performed a selection from the musical Beauty and the Beast for the authors.
    “Mitch and Martha’s Author Day Visit” was wonderful! Their personal warmth combined with their love for storytelling left our children with a special gift…the knowledge that they to can make up and also tell great stories, and preserve this oral tradition.

After splitting up into three groups, and collecting the garbage, the class collected a total of four large bags of garbage! Many things, such as the amount of garbage they collected, and the “treasures” of golf balls they had found, surprised them! Earth Day at Huth Road Elementary School was taught in one of the greatest ways – keeping our grounds clean and Earth friendly. Pictured above are some of the students in Mrs. Lipp, Mrs. Kopf, and Miss Marisa DeBacco’s third grade class.

Click photos for larger view

   March 22, 2007 . . .For their semester research project, the third grade students in Mrs. Karen Schauger's class at Huth Road Elementary are researching candidates for the New 7 Wonders of the World campaign. The Seven Wonders web site explains the project as it is being run on a world-wide level - to check out more details go to: Students have researched and learned enough about their candidates to design a poster that will convince other children in the school to vote for one of the 21 New 7 Wonders candidates. This has incorporated persuasive writing, research skills using written sources and the Internet, and computer skills. Mrs. Amy McMann's 3rd grade class also worked on the project and between the two classes they researched all 21 candidates for this new honor.
   Jamie Mancuso, the Teaching Assistant for the Grand Island School District's Technology department, has been instrumental in adapting this idea and the resources available to a 3rd grade level, both academically and computer-skill-wise. She taught the students how to make posters on the computer using Printshop, importing images from several online sources to show a picture of the candidate and its location. This really took the project into the 21st century and beyond the days of poster board and paint!
   The classes are nearing completion of the posters. When they are done they will display them in the hallways at school, making viewers aware of this real-world event and their chance to help decide on the next 7 Wonders of the World by voting online.
