    March 18, 2019

    Parents and students packed the cafetorium on March 18, 2019 for the West Nyack Elementary Science Expo.

    Walking in the aisles between rows of tables, visitors listened to the students present the results of numerous experiments they had recently completed. In addition to their oral presentations, students provided parents further insight while referencing the pictures and artifacts connected to their poster boards.  The experiments were connected to the following catergories: Chemical Science; Earth; Electricity; Life; and Physics.

    While visiting with students, I learned the results of their experiments: Pop Rocks Expander; Gummy Bear Science; The Fastest Egg; Which Solution Prevents Apples from Browning?;Geodes; The Race - Salt vs. Pepper.

    The Science Expo Committee included Maria Cavaliere, Sara Fine, Kristin Hanley, Elyse Hausner, Alana Murphy, Laura Pestone, and Melissa Tsironis.

    West Nyack Elementary Principal Annie Streiff commented, "I am so proud of you for pursuing your intellectual curiousity, and for setting the example for all of your fellow students by creating your projects for the Second Annual WNES Science Expo.  Thank you for all of your hard work, and thank you to all of the grown-ups who helped you along the way to make your exhibits interesting, fun, and scientifically specially - especially moms and dads. Most especially, thank you to all the WNES grown-ups who made this event possible!"

    The Link IB World School students celebrated cultures from around the globe on March 3, 2017.

    In front of a packed crowd of parents, students, faculty, staff and family members, the students took turns performing on stage while showcasing cultural elements of several countries. Principal Fran Cuccia, and then Co-IB Coordinator Danielle Jackson, welcomed the audience and students at the outset of the program.  The students then performed the following: International Chorus, Irish Step Dancing, Indian Dance Pair, German Song, Russian Ballet, Latin Dance, Spanish Club Dance Lessons, Indian Poetry, Frere Jacques, Greek Dance, USA Dance, Tae Kwon Do Demonstration, Indian/American Dance, and an International Fashion Show.

    When entering the school, visitors viewed displays in the hallway that included essays about famous people from around the world.  Adjacent to each essay was a doll that students created to portray the individual they wrote about in their respective essays.

    Members of the Link PTA provided desserts made from international recipes.

    Then Board of Education President Michael Aglialoro was in atttendance as were Board of Education members Walter Litvak and Zizette Deutsch along with Assistant Superintendent for Personnel Jeff Sobel, and then Elementary Curriculum Coordinator Dr. Ellen Connors.
