For the ninth year in a row, students at Oakside Elementary have come together to compete in a cup stacking competition to help raise money for Cystic Fibrosis. Students spent the past few weeks practicing their cup stacking skills to compete in the event, which was organized with the help of Coach Murphy, Oakside's PE teacher.
Second grade Dual Language students at Oakside Elementary added an adorable touch to the school's monthly PBIS celebration when they performed Shirley Temple's, "Good Ship Lollipop." In honor of March being Women's History Month the children learned about Temple's career and watched clips of her performances.
Oakside teacher Janice Stewart, who helped organize the school’s Box Top collection, has been participating in the Box Tops for Education program for over seven years. To earn the rock wall, Oakside spent the past few years accumulating over 40,000 Box Tops, which earned them enough to credit to acquire the $4,000 item.
When Oakside teacher Lynda Delmonaco received an email from George Goess¸ one of the co-advisors of Peekskill High School’s Interact Club, asking for help in collecting donations for the club’s “Fluff the Pups” event¸ Delmonaco was happy to volunteer and eagerly involved her third grade students in the effort as well.
