Cherry Lane went virtual with their annual Hour of Code event, where more than 50 Cherry Lane students and families participated.

Students were assigned a different coding themed activity in Seesaw each night to complete and share. Mrs. Theresa Collalto and Ms. Jessica Racanelli provided videos about each theme and the history of computer science. These themes included sequencing, looping, algorithms and hardware vs. software.

Participants completed plugged and unplugged coding tasks from Dec. 7-12. They coded, danced, created and learned all week long. Mrs. Collalto and Ms. Racanelli said they “are very proud of the hard work these students put into this year's Virtual Hour of Code.”

Middle-High School Virtual Enterprise International students took the lead in a presentation during the district’s December board of education meeting.

The informative display discussed what the class is about, the events they participate in and how it helps prepare students for the business world. Virtual Enterprise students run a virtual business and engage in company activities with a global network of student-run businesses in more than 40 countries. The classes are in-school, live, global business simulations that offer students a competitive edge through project-based, collaborative learning.

Now on its fourth year, 33 students are currently taking the class this year, with the new student-run firms called “Apricity” and “Splash.”

Board members and administrators were impressed with their accomplishments and wishes them luck for the rest of the school year.

It was an exciting night during the district’s December Board of Education meeting, as board members and administrators celebrated two student achievements.

The night kicked off with the board honoring Middle-High School student Nicholas Pascarella, as he was selected to join the Nassau County Police Department Youth Council. This program began as an initiative from the New York State Governor to address police reform. Students involved in this program discuss how they would like to see changes in the Nassau Police Department and across the country.

In addition to this, Nicholas and another Middle-High School student Leah Iglesias were acknowledged for their participation in the Nassau BOCES Long Island Regional Virtual Student Forum. During the forum, which took place in November, selected student participants made their voices heard and shared their thoughts regarding important topics like remote/hybrid learning, social justice, social-emotional health and more. Their feedback provided insight as to what can be improved and enhanced during these difficult times.

The district is proud of both Nicholas and Leah on their wonderful achievements.
