Good Morning Albany Avenue!

Friday mornings at Albany Avenue Elementary School begin with a student produced newscast by the Albany Avenue Broadcasting Company (AABC). The show—AAE News—is generated from a green screen studio and hosted by two teams of fifth grade students—auditioned and mentored by teachers Kevin Schwab, Carolyn O’Gorman, and Catherine McLoughlin. They prepare copy, read news, share the weather forecast, and make birthday announcements. Each week, they pre-record the pledge of allegiance with a new class, chosen and announced via lottery during the live show.

On Thursday, February 6, 2020, Farmingdale High School hosted the All District Chorus Concert, bringing together 420 students from all six Farmingdale schools—elementary through high school. 

Each year, the All District Concert is a showcase that demonstrates the amazing level of growth that takes place from the elementary to the high school level. It alternates every three years with band, orchestra, and chorus. 

Music teachers Christina Cinnamo and Emilie D’Andrilli conducted the elementary chorus. Danielle Tucker conducted the middle school chorus. The high school women’s chorus was conducted by Edward Kozlowski, and the mixed chorus was conducted by Jessica Mischke. The combined ensemble was conducted by Catherine McLaughlin. 

The grand finale brought all the students together to sing “You Will Be Found” from the musical Dear Evan Hansen.

Fourth Annual Cardboard Arcade at Albany Avenue Elementary School

fullsizeoutput_cb80.jpg thumbnail161164
Fifth-grade students at Albany Avenue Elementary School transformed their gym into a colorful cardboard arcade yesterday.

This was the fourth year for the event, originally inspired by a YouTube video called Caine’s Arcade, about a nine-year-old Los Angeles boy named Caine Monroy, who spent his entire 2012 summer vacation dreaming and building an intricate DIY arcade using cardboard boxes from his dad’s auto parts store.

The young students began working on their games a few months ago with a brainstorming session, then created, decorated, and named their games for the big event.

Every grade was given a time to visit the arcade and each student received a fun pass to play five games. A fun time was had by all!
