Babylon School District
Fourth graders at Babylon Grade School participated in hands-on workshops in late March courtesy of the school’s Parent-Teacher Association’s cultural arts program. Benner’s Farm from Setauket visited the school to teach about life during colonial times. The workshops focused on the life experiences of colonial children. Students carded wool and used a drop spindle to turn the wool into yarn. They made a spinning top, a popular toy of colonial children, that helped them learn how to use the drop spindle. The students were able to use a loom to learn weaving. At the calligraphy and painting station, students used feather quill pens to write their names and painted using stencils. After grinding corn to make cornmeal on the stone, they sampled some corn cakes.
Throughout his high school career, valedictorian Kenneth Graham has participated in numerous activities in and out of the classroom. He is a member of the Student Council, National Honor Society, Class Cabinet, DECA and science research. He also plays on the lacrosse and golf teams. Graham is undecided on his choice of college at this time.
Salutatorian Alexis Lewis serves at the president of DECA and is a member of the National Honor Society, Business Honor Society and Social Studies Honor Society. Outside of school, she is a volunteer at Stony Brook Hospital and a volunteer student teacher at Center Stage Dance. She is also the recipient of gold and silver awards from the Girl Scouts. Lewis is still undecided on her college choice.
Babylon Union Free School District congratulates both students on their exceptional academic and extracurricular records and wishes them the utmost continued success as they become Babylon alumni.
The club created a schoolwide mural featuring the school community and different cultural perspectives. Each day, announcements were made by speakers in their native language including Bangladesh, Urdu, French, Chinese and Spanish. Using the letters in the word “human,” each day was themed around a different activity. On March 7, the focus was habitat. Students scanned different homes using QR codes placed throughout the building. On March 8, students signed up in the teams to compete in an after-school jigsaw puzzle competition, focusing on unity.
A schoolwide music showdown was the focus of day 3. Students scanned QR codes to vote on their favorite songs in Spanish and French. On March 10, students went on an adventure scavenger hunt to track down different letters to solve a Wordle puzzle. The final day of activities focused on need. As part of a Penny Wars initiative, students collected change while staff participated in a Jeans Friday to raise more for UNICEF’s efforts in the Ukraine.
