Grundy Avenue Draws from Dots

Opening doors of artistic creativity and inspiration, Grundy Avenue Elementary students in Nicole Liuzzi’s third-grade classes participated in their annual monthlong International Dot Day art project.

Students began their project by creating a single dot on a sheet of paper. Mrs. Liuzzi then read her class “The Dot,” by Peter H. Reynold. The book portrays a little girl who is shy about expressing her artistic abilities. After some encouragement from her art teacher, she becomes inspired by a tiny dot she put on a piece of paper and then goes on to create many more works of art, all stemming from a single dot. The students in Mrs. Liuzzi’s class mirrored this process, revisiting their original dots at the completion of the book and creating their very own masterpieces. 

“I feel that the book and this project truly embody what art is all about, creativity and innovation,” said Mrs. Liuzzi. “The art room is truly the one place where students can lose their fear of being wrong and just have fun.”

While creating their works of art, the students often looked to a line from the book, “Just make a mark and see where it takes you.” Each dot took the students though their very own enriching artistic journey.

Energy Lessons Spark Student Interest at Grundy

Grundy Avenue Elementary Students learned about energy and effective practices to conserve it during a PSEG Long Island-sponsored assembly by The Energized Guys.   

The program incorporated multiple characters and explored four main topics: defining energy, the uses of energy, how energy is wasted and ways to conserve it. Throughout the show students were taught about various energy conservation methods and tactics to cut down energy waste around their homes. 
 
“It’s really important that we educate and help children and their families understand the importance of our natural resources and using energy wisely,” said George Coburn, customer experience manager for PSEG Long Island. “Even young students can understand that they have energy choices. The younger they begin learning, the more likely they will retain these concepts throughout their life.”

Following the presentations teachers reinforced topics learned during the performance with classroom activities on energy.

Among the various items collected were personal hygiene supplies, nonperishable food items and a harvest of crops grown in Wenonah’s community garden, as well as gift cards and other monetary donations.

All items will be donated to one of three Texas schools the district has adopted or to local organization Island Harvest.
