    To kick off this year’s assemblies, Huth Road Elementary School welcomed Kids on the Block. The program consisting of puppets and puppeteers is presented by the museum of disability history, a project of People Inc. Our third and fourth grade classes enjoyed the puppets and presentation. The mission of the Kids on the Block is to use the power of puppetry to inspire children to appreciate differences, say no to all forms of prejudice, and develop skills to grow up healthy and safe. This is knowledge that will not only serve them well now, but throughout their lives, making children - and our whole community - stronger. The children at Huth Road Elementary now truly have a better understanding and acceptance of other children regardless of disabilities.

Science at Its BEST - June 2010


Click photo for larger view
    Nine students from the Chemistry Department at Canisius College presented chemistry magic to the students at Huth Road Elementary School on Thursday, June 3. They delighted the kids with demonstrations of rainbow colored fire, golden pennies, cryogenically frozen bananas, and other amazing tricks. The Huth Road students loved to see the amazing science tricks and offered their observations and thoughts about what they saw. The Canisius students, representing their Student Chapter of the American Chemical Society (SCACS), travel to local schools to help foster an interest in science. Dr. Steven Szczepankiewicz and his team of chemistry students presented a lively and engaging demonstration of chemistry for all of the students. “The more we can help young students see how exciting science can be, the more students we will have entering into the field,” said Dr. Szczepankiewicz. The students certainly had a lot of fun. Lots of spontaneous applause and plenty of “oohs” and “aahs” filled the gym. Canisius College is also sponsoring a Summer Science Camp for students entering 5th through 8th grade, August 2-6, 9am-3pm, with lunch included for $100.00. The camp website is: http://www3.canisius.edu/~szczepas/Camp/ssc.html.


Readers are Leaders at Huth - June 2010

Click photo for larger view
    Throughout the school year, the students at Huth Road Elementary School received books on behalf of the Readers are Leaders program through the Huth Road School PTA. For the last distribution for the school year, the students were asked to bring in a gently used book to donate to Project Flight. Project Flight is a not-for-profit organization devoted to promoting literacy in children and caregivers, through school and family literacy initiatives. While the students get a book, they are also “giving back” the books they have already read! It is important that parents encourage their children to read over the summer. Here are some reasons why reading to, or with, your children every day will help them become leaders.
• Because when you hold them and give them this attention, they know you love them.
• Because reading to your children will encourage them to become readers for life.
• Because children's books today are so good, they are even fun for adults.
• Because illustrations in children's books often rank among the best, giving children a life long feeling for good art.
• Books will enable your child's imagination to soar.
• Because every teacher and librarian they encounter will thank you.
   Here are some more ideas that may be helpful to you and your family over the summer on how to raise a bookworm: Make regular trips to the Grand Island Memorial Library. Help each child acquire their very own library card. Keep a special place at home especially for library books, so they are easy to find on the due date! Set up a bookshelf in your child’s room or in a corner of another room to keep their own books. Play Scrabble and Boggle and other word games. Model yourself as a reader. Curl up with a good book today. Remember the TV has an off button too. Give books as gifts for Birthdays, Christmas and other holidays. Plan a trip together -- read maps and travel brochures etc. Have your child keep a diary of the trip. Read aloud a lot and encourage quiet alone reading time every day. Discuss the books you and your child read. "Would you like to live during those times?" "Would you have chosen him as a friend?" "How do you think she felt when...?" "What would you have done?" Provide an unlimited amount of reading material... Magazines, newspapers, comic books, paperback books, encyclopedias, story books etc. Just remember to encourage your child to have fun and READ!
