Waverly Elementary Pledges for Peace

Students across grade levels at Waverly Elementary School recently attended a special assembly promoting peace throughout their school community and beyond. They helped to plant seeds of kindness as they wrapped daffodil bulbs in peace pledges that were planted in front of the school.

As part of the character education curriculum, each student at Waverly Elementary School was asked to write an essay on what peace means to them. Then, during the assembly, several students were selected to read their essays to fellow classmates, allowing the students to reflect on the ideas of their peers. 

Continuing the connection to promoting peace throughout Waverly, the students organized a fundraiser to benefit the nonprofit organization The Team Jesse Foundation, which provides education and support to families of fallen soldiers in honor of SSG Jesse Williams. The students sold Team Jesse bracelets and raised $400, which they presented during the assembly to the parents of Kevin Mincio, founder of The Team Jesse Foundation.

To conclude the event, all students wrote pledges on how they can make Waverly Elementary a better place. They then walked outside the school to plant daffodil bulbs that will bloom beautiful flowers in spring, reminding each student of their promises to promote peace. 

Spooky STEAM for Sachem Students

Waverly Avenue Elementary students in Cathy Juliano’s fourth-grade class participated in a Halloween-themed STEAM activity that challenged their creative design skills by calling for the construction of miniature haunted houses.

To begin the project, students drafted unique design ideas, keeping in mind the structural integrity of their buildings. Following the design process, students turned their ideas into reality utilizing popsicle sticks and glue. Throughout the construction process, students employed problem-solving techniques by incorporating the objects around them to act as braces, allowing the glue to set and the structures to strengthen. 

Following construction, students decorated their houses with paint and Halloween-themed cutouts.
