Middle School Students Energized About Engineering

As part of their study on energy, eighth graders constructed and tested bottle cars in their STEAM class at Edmund W. Miles Middle School. The hands-on activity allowed them to see for themselves how potential energy turns into kinetic energy.

Teacher Natasha Lim gave each student an empty plastic water bottle to use as the car’s body. Other supplies included metal and wooden rods as axles and bottle caps for the wheels. Students could choose either a low-tech or a high-tech option to power their cars – a straw connected to a balloon or a small, battery-powered motor. 

Students began the engineering challenge by doing research on their Chromebooks to explore potential solutions, then sketched out their designs before building. 

Service to Country is Appreciated in Amityville

To mark Veterans Day, students at Edmund W. Miles Middle School and Amityville Memorial High School learned about the brave men and women who served in the United States military and why their sacrifices are important.

At the middle school, social studies teacher Frank O’Brian and hall monitor Sykes Reese spoke to students through a Google Meet videoconference about their experiences in the Navy. They each presented a slideshow with photos and video clips, then participated in a virtual question and answer session with students.

Middle school students also wrote letters to veterans or current members of the military. They had the option of writing a thank-you letter to Mr. O’Brien, Mr. Reese, Amityville graduates Esteban Idrovo and Rene Idrovo who are presently serving in the armed forces, a veteran they know personally, or a generic letter to be sent through SupportOurTroops.org.

At Amityville Memorial High School, three current servicemen participated in a half-hour videoconference with students during their seminar period on Nov. 12. All classrooms tuned in and students learning remotely could also watch from their Chromebooks. 

The speakers included both active duty military personnel and reservists. Assistant Brian Suckle, who coordinated the program and facilitated the discussion, said they talked about their reasons for enlisting, the branches of the military they belong to, their military experiences and career opportunities in the armed forces. They also took questions from students and teachers. 

Earlier in the week, high school students learned about the six core principles of the Medal of Honor, the most prestigious personal military decoration, and watched videos about past medal winners. 

Middle School Honor Society Thanks Custodians

Keeping school buildings clean and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic is a vital role, and students at Edmund W. Miles Middle School wanted to recognize that effort. Students in the National Junior Honor Society showed their appreciation for the school’s custodial staff with a special presentation.

Honor society adviser Carlee Brunson said that although the options are limited this year, her students still want to find ways of fulfilling the organization’s community service mission. She met with them over Google Meet to discuss ideas, and they decided to recognize the custodians because their efforts directly impact the students. 

Ms. Brunson created a blank Google Slides presentation, and each student filled one page with graphics and personal messages of thanks. She then printed out the completed project and presented it as a gift to each custodian. 

The eighth grade members of the honor society contributing their messages of thanks were Lizette Acosta, Tiffany Asbell, Jayda Barker, Jesus Barrios, Alani Bosse, Kayla Canales, Melody Cauley, Nyla Epps, Paola Flores, April Kenny, Julina McMeo, Alisson Molina, Nathalia Moreno, Luis Moreno, Janaiya Randolph, Jonathan Ruiz-Chirinos, Janithza Sanabria and Sasha Urias.

“You always ensure that the students can learn in a clean environment, you are friendly with the students, and you make sure everything is safe for not only students, but for faculty as well,” Alani wrote.

Tiffany, the chapter president, wrote, “Thank you so much for keeping our schools safe, comfortable, and clean! Even if you don’t always hear it from everyone, we appreciate all of you!”

“When I come into school I feel relieved knowing that the school will be cleaned and safe,” Jonathan shared in his message. “It takes bravery to do what you do especially when there’s a pandemic going around. You are what is keeping kids able to go to school and get the education that they deserve.”
