It’s no wonder Port Jefferson Middle School students have been treating one another with more empathy, compassion and acceptance. Students in Ms. Michelle Landetta’s class read R. J. Palacio’s bestselling book “Wonder” together, discussed its theme and steps they can take to promote kindness to others.

Students and staff decorated and wrote inspirational quotes, positive affirmations and words of hope on the popsicle sticks that were provided to them. They then created a “PJMS – We Stick Together” bulletin board right in a hallway of the school for all to not only admire their creative work, but to share in their refreshing ideas and promote everyone’s appreciation for the simple and joyful act of friendship.

Edna Louise Spear’s Future Engineers!

Fifth grade students in Ms. Kari Costanzo’s class have been learning the engineering design process and have used their skills to construct pompom launchers with a set number of simple objects including straws, popsicle sticks, tape, string and plastic cups to see how far their experiments could go.

As engineers, they examined the materials they could use, came up with their designs and moved on to building, testing, modifying and testing again. The students conducted an informal contest to see who developed the one that went the farthest (Clara Pearce), the sturdiest one (Kemp Garrett) and the simplest and most inexpensive one (Nina Gnatenko).
