Nokomis Elementary School third-grade students embarked on travel around the world as part of an interactive social studies lesson.

Each third-grade student wrote a report about a country from their heritage, exploring important elements such as its flag and prominent foods eaten in the area. The students then presented their reports to fellow classmates, answering questions and showing off items such as different forms of currency from around the world. 

Concluding the multicultural study, students indulged in a feast of prepared dishes from the locations explored. The feast featured dishes such as empanadas from Argentina, sausage bread from Italy, kebabs from Poland, Irish soda bread from Ireland and German chocolate cake.

Shortly before this year’s Veterans Day, students at Nokomis Elementary School welcomed past Nokomis student, High School North alumni and recent United States Marine boot camp graduate Amadeus Garay-Reyes for a special visit.

Over the past few months, third-grade students in Laura Clifford and Tara Erb’s class, including Amadeus’ younger brother Tyler, have been in contact with the new Marine during his time in boot camp, sending messages of encouragement, along with questions about his experience as a beginning military member. Amadeus replied to students with answers to their questions and thanks for their unwavering support. 

During the in-class visit, Amadeus thanked the students personally for their kind words and encouraged them to always try their best in everything they do. He continued the visit by answering more questions for the students and explained what Veterans Day means to him.  

Concluding the eventful day, Amadeus was surprised by his favorite teacher Bill O’Neil, who was his inspiration growing up.

Sachem students at Nokomis Elementary School were visited by members of the Ronkonkoma Fire Department as the district continued its emphasis on fire safety and prevention.

Students across all grade levels learned about the various gear that firefighters wear during emergency situations, such as a self-contained breathing apparatus which provides firefighters air as they enter a smoke-filled structure, how to safely escape a fire and the importance of knowing more than one way to exit their home if necessary. 

Concluding the fire prevention assembly program, students were guided through the multiple firefighting apparatuses within the department and had the opportunity to explore a fire truck.
