On February 5, 2020, the administration, teachers, and students of Woodward Parkway Elementary School welcomed nearly 25 families to the second of a series of breakfast workshops designed to strengthen the home/school connection and to let parents know about the great things going on in the classrooms.

The workshop, "Our One-to-World Initiative: How our Teachers and Students are Using Technology," featured students and teachers sharing apps like Google Slides, FlipGrid, Book Creator, and Padlet, which have enhanced engagement and provided students with choices about how to share their learning experiences.

Music teachers shared an incredible tool called SMART Music, which students use to engage in purposeful repeated practice. Parents were also introduced to an app called Quaver, used by students to compose their own pieces of music. Library Media Specialist Lidia Horyn shared Epic—a comprehensive digital library—plus a host of other resources that students have access to through ClassLink. 

"We are so grateful to Mrs. Squicciarini, Mrs. Leff, Mr. Weber, Mrs. Haas, Mrs. Dandrilli, Mrs. Horyn, and Mrs. Cocheo for sharing their expertise with our families,” said Woodward Parkway Elementary School Principal Dr. Patrick Klocek. “We could not be prouder of the students who took on the role of teachers, as they explained to parents how the tools work and why we’re all so excited to use them.”

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.
