Gobbling Up Books

Students in grades 3-5 at Westhampton Beach Elementary School rang in the new year by exploring new books during a “book tasting” event cooked up by school librarian Joy Campagna. 

As an authentic touch, the school’s library was transformed into a restaurant, complete with artificial candlelight, classical music and a menu featuring a variety of book genres. Students were encouraged to “taste” new books and take one home to devour.  

“Students left the library with books they never knew were on the shelves,” said Campagna. “They learned that you don’t know whether you like something until you try it.”

 

Celebrating an Hour of Code

To mark Computer Science Education Week, held Dec. 9-15, Westhampton Beach Elementary School students each spent an hour learning code through activities provided by Code.org.

Known as the Hour of Code, the experience gives students an opportunity to explore coding as the basis for a possible career in computer science. It also allows them to hone their problem-solving skills and celebrate the birthday of computing pioneer Grace Murray Hopper. 

Students also showed their eagerness for coding by participating in spirit days throughout the week, wearing bright colors, jeans, sneakers and Westhampton Beach spirit wear to school.
