Mrs. Bolton, recipient of the Support Staff Service Award, began her career with the district in 2005. She was a food service worker, assistant cook and is now head cook at Robert Moses Middle School. She cheerfully greets students and staff each day, providing 200 breakfasts and 1,100 student lunches. In addition, she regularly caters meetings, celebrations and special events. Mrs. Bolton is an active CSEA member and secretary of her unit. 

Mrs. Savastano received the Community Service Award for her outstanding efforts within the district, which has spanned 40 years. She serves on the PTA and has been the recipient of the Honorary Life, Distinguished Service and Lee Tatti Community Service awards, as well as the North Babylon Teachers’ Organization’s Distinguished Service Award. Mrs. Savastano contributes to many district committees and community organizations such as PASA, PEP, PYAC, Site Base Management Teams, Human Relations, Scholarship Committee, Health & Safety Committee, NBCYS and Lions Club. She continues to show an impressive level of dedication to community service. 

Ms. Carlino, recipient of the Teacher Service Award, is a valued member of the Belmont Elementary School staff, teaching at the elementary level for 23 years. She is a mentor to untenured teachers, participates in curriculum writing and is a member of the Superintendent Teacher Advisory Council.

Parliament hosts Dual Language Parent workshop

Parliament Place hosted a Dual Language Parent workshop, where students in the K-3 Dual Language program performed a production in Spanish for their families. The production was based on the folktale, “La Ratita Presumida/The Vain Little Mouse.”

After the performance, students participated in a variety of Math and Movement stations in the gym, where they used fun floor mats to move around and practice math concepts. These fun, kinesthetic activities helped support the development of skills, such as bilingual counting, skip counting, place value, counting by 10s, and telling time.

Celebrating Diversity Through Literature

Parliament Place highlighted the arts and the multicultural diversity through literature for the school’s International Children’s Book Day celebration. For the celebration, teachers had guest readers read trade books on each grade level that represent many different ethnicities.

In Ms. Montuori’s class, Town of Babylon Councilman Terence McSweeney visited students and read “The Steadfast Tin Soldier” by Hans Christian Andersen. After that, Ms. Montuori’s students rehearsed a performance for Councilman McSweeney, which they later performed for other students in the building. The performance consisted of students singing songs and reciting poems that reflected the theme of the day. 




Students Brought Historical Figures to Life

Woods Road School fifth-graders took spectators back in time during the school’s third annual presentation of the Living Wax Museum 2019 Hall of Heroes. For the project, students were assigned with an inspirational figure from ancient to modern times who have made historical impacts. Students represented individuals who were activists, creative thinkers, inventors and leaders who inspired the world.

Students were tasked to create an informative poster board and then take on the persona of that individual by dressing as them for the museum. 

During the viewing, students posed in front of their posters and waited for parents and other grade-level students to “press” a button that was placed on their attire. This prompted students to come to life and provide an informative speech about the individual they were representing.

The interactive activity was a great way for students to become deeply informed of significant historical figures that changed the world.

NBHS junior Joseph Candia was recognized for earning the rank of Eagle Scout at the March 21 North Babylon School District’s Board of Education meeting.

Superintendent of Schools Glen Eschbach presented Candia with a certificate of commendation and spoke of his efforts in achieving this rank. For his Eagle Scout project, Candia repaired and replaced a damaged fence around the playground at the park of Our Lady of Lourdes Parish in West Islip. He also created playground art in the adjacent parking lot on Toomey Road, cleaned up the entire playground area, trimmed all low tree branches to avoid potential injuries and planted more than 70 bulbs in the various gardens around the church.

Candia also serves as a member of the Superintendent’s Student Advisory Council, which Superintendent Eschbach described him as an outstanding student.

“He’s always willing to participate, give us ideas on how we can improve our school district,” Superintendent Eschbach said. “I’m really proud to know you, and congratulations on accomplishing the Eagle Scout rank.”
