4:00 PM WUT Executive Board Meeting
This holiday season Wantagh Middle School will be conducting a Toy Drive for children who happen to be spending the holidays in the hospital. Selected students from B.E.S.T. will be giving out these toys to the children at The Nassau University Medical Center. The purpose of this drive is to provide the children with a present to brighten their holiday season. The B.E.S.T. Club is looking for donations of NEW toys, books or games for these children. The extra toys that we have left after our hospital visit will be donated to a local charity. Please do not wrap the toys. The B.E.S.T. club will be doing the wrapping. Donations of wrapping paper would be appreciated.
The chess club meets two times per month and all are welcome. Besides learning and playing chess, some students have introduced Uno to the group. This club includes all ability levels of chess players. The pictures are of the Middle School Chess Club, with advisor Dr. Steve Taylor.
Eighth-grade E-Business students are well-informed on the importance of a clean digital footprint. In honor of Stomp Out Bullying Day on Oct. 5, the students disseminated their knowledge to sixth-graders by hosting a digital citizenship and cyberbullying class, which emphasized that a digital footprint remains forever.
Wantagh Middle School students simply rolled out of bed and came to school in pajamas to benefit Ryan’s Case for Smiles, an organization that sews decorative and personalized pillowcases for hospitalized children. Each student wearing pajamas donated a dollar, which resulted in a collection of $326 for the organization.
Middle school sixth-grader Emma Alexander’s award-winning 2014-2015 PTA Reflections film production entry “Helping Hands” was chosen for public viewing at the New York State PTA Reflections Art Roadshow exhibit, to be held at the Cradle of Aviation Museum in Garden City from Oct. 17 to Nov. 1. The Roadshow artwork will also travel to Niagara Falls for the 119th Annual Convention where it will be on display from Nov. 13-14.
Incoming sixth-grade students and their parents eagerly lined up at registration tables on the middle school’s front lawn to receive their schedules during the school’s annual barbecue. During the event, the students were invited to tour the school, find their lockers and mingle with friends.
