A Day in the Life

Fire Island is not only a beautiful place to live but also to learn, and the Woodhull Elementary School fifth grade students took to their local shores to participate in an ecology project called a “Day in the Life of Fire Island” for the third consecutive year this September.

Joined again by Woodhull fifth grade teacher Gabrielle Donovan, Ranger Kelsey Sucena of the National Parks Service and Adelphi University Visiting Assistant Professor Ruth Coffey, the students spent the September morning taking samples of bay water, sediment and aquatic life and analyzing their results. Meanwhile, students from Bay Shore High School and Longwood Junior High School were in other areas of Fire Island performing similar work.

The “Day in the Life” events, which are organized by several government agencies at federal, state and county levels, take place in various locations on Long Island throughout the year to check the health of its aquatic ecosystems and promote policy changes to maintain them accordingly.

Woodhull’s school community came together this June to celebrate the collective successes of its students in grades pre-K through sixth grade during a special graduation and year-end concert.

During the ceremony, each member of the sixth grade class was individually honored and commended for their achievements before being presented with commemorative moving-up certificates and tokens of appreciation. In addition to honoring those moving up to middle school, the district also honored the school’s youngest scholars who completed pre-K this June. Donning miniature graduation caps and gowns, the students received certificates of promotion and took the next step in their educational journey.

After an opening performance of the national anthem by second grader Catherine Philippe, the spring concert continued with performances by the concert band. The group played such pieces as the theme from “The Avengers” movies and Dvorak’s New World Symphony, which featured solos by each of the sixth grade students. Later, younger students sang together accompanied by the third graders on ukulele, and then the fourth and sixth grade joined as the whole school performed “The Teeny Tiny Boat” in English and Spanish. Olivia Asaro-Apsley, Cailee Couch and Ariel Vizcarrondo performed stirring solos, followed by a return of the concert band to perform Camila Cabello’s “Havana” with improvised solos. Finally, the whole school performed the song “Try Everything” from the movie “Zootopia,” which ended the concert on the familiar themes of perseverance, curiosity, kindness, optimism and enthusiasm.
