100 Days of Learning

Students in the Riverhead Central School District had reason to celebration on Feb. 24 — they reached the 100th day of the school year.

In the district’s elementary schools, classrooms celebrated the milestone through a variety of activities. Students dressed as 100-year-olds, participated in 100 counting activities and reflected on what they have learned.

“In a year that has been so challenging in so many ways, it’s a joy to be able to celebrate the completion of 100 successful days,” said Bryan Miltenberg, Aquebogue Elementary School principal.

Play All Day

While the Riverhead School District’s Global Play Day looked different due to COVID-19 restrictions, the annual event on Feb. 3 still fostered collaboration and social interaction among students at Aquebogue and Riley Avenue elementary schools.

At Riley, students created a multitude of art projects and played socially distanced games. The same was true at Aquebogue, where teachers created fun and creative play opportunities.

The full-day event was brought to the district two years ago by the third grade team at Roanoke Avenue Elementary School in hopes that it would inspire families to plan for more unstructured play time during non-school hours while also developing students’ social and imaginative skills.

Celebrating Black History Month

Students at Riley Avenue and Aquebogue elementary schools in the Riverhead Central School District are celebrating Black History Month with a number of educational activities.

Three students at Riley — Ayden Hennings, Jessica Lopez Valasquez and Julia Viola — taught their peers about famous Black Americans through virtual recordings. Each spent time researching a significant individual and then recorded themselves speaking on their research. The recordings were played over the school’s PA system on successive mornings.

At Aquebogue, third graders studied the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and reflected on love and service to others. They also created an informative gallery walk featuring prominent Black Americans, including Mae Jemison, Langston Hughes, Thurgood Marshall and Sojourner Truth. The tour’s focus on past individuals was balanced out by some of today’s many influential Black Americans, including Amanda Gorman, Lloyd Austin and Kamala Harris.

Across all grade levels, there has been a focus on including voices and stories that build every child’s more complete understanding of Black history in America. Along with celebrating Black Americans such as Shirley Chisholm, Gordon Parks and Jane Bolin during the daily morning announcements, Aquebogue Principal Bryan Miltenberg and Assistant Principal Gary Karlson have been sharing read alouds for students on the school’s distance learning website, which has a dedicated tab with Black History Month recordings and resources.

“Ultimately, Black History Month aims to inspire year-round and lifelong learning about the history, voices and experiences of Black Americans,” said Karlson. “The students at Aquebogue have found the recent kickoff of Black History Month to be a powerful education on our past, an opportunity to appreciate the contributions of the present, and a chance to build an even more hopeful future together in our school, homes and communities.”
