A Day to Explore and Showcase Languages

For World Language Exploration Day at May Moore, seniors from the high school studying Spanish, Italian and French visited kindergarten, first-grade and second-grade classrooms to teach language lessons to the younger students. The annual project, held this year on March 29, is planned to coincide with March as World Languages and Cultural Awareness Month.

“The high school seniors get the opportunity to create engaging lessons for the primary kids, allowing them to think critically about how languages are both learned and taught,” said teacher Ashley Rosenberg. “Equally as important, the elementary kids gain an awareness of languages other than English. The program ties in nicely with our district’s ENL program, as ENL students at the elementary level are able to showcase their language skills. The entire process creates an environment of cultural exploration, acceptance, appreciation and tolerance.”

May Moore Celebrates Uniqueness with Autism Puzzle


Students at May Moore learned the importance of acceptance and empathy during Autism Awareness Month, with teachers Alannah Boccard and Susan Mirman leading the school in joining literacy and social action.

Each class read a student-centered book about “being different and unique.” Classes then created puzzle pieces to go along with the text they read. With the help of art teacher Michelle Sarco, each puzzle piece was combined to create a large art installation that was put on display in front of the May Moore library and media center.

“Our students learned that diversity is what makes us unique,” said Principal Alicia Konecny. “Just like Elmer the Patchwork Elephant, whose herd reassured Elmer that they love him because of his differences, not in spite of them. The children also celebrated by painting themselves in multicolored paint in recognition of Elmer’s unique appearance and personality. This is an important life lesson we try to teach everyday in our words and actions, not just during Autism Awareness Month.”

May Moore Second-Grade Artists Selected for Colors Exhibit

Gianna Montes and Blake Muller, both second-graders at May Moore, were selected to represent Deer Park and have their work displayed in the 19th annual Colors of Long Island student art exhibit.  

Colors of Long Island, sponsored by Astoria Bank, gives K-12 students the opportunity to show their artistic talents in a museum setting. May Moore was one of 179 schools participating in this year’s exhibition.

Accompanied by teachers Briana Nussbaum and Michelle Sarco, both students and their families attended the reception for the exhibit, which runs through April 16 at the Long Island Museum in Stony Brook.

“We are very proud of our students,” said Nussbaum. “It was great to see them so excited to be in a special art show.”

May Moore's Mad Hatter's Tea

May Moore kindergarters decorated fancy hats for a Mad Hatter’s Tea celebration on Valentine‘s Day. Each student read the reasons why they love their special chosen person, and they performed such songs as “Love” by Nat King Cole, “All You Really Need” by Raffi and “That’s Amore!” by Dean Martin.

May Moore ENL Students Celebrate Love at Family Fun Night


Students in the English as a New Language program at May Moore recently celebrated love and unity at the school’s Family Fun Night, performing songs like “All You Need Is Love”, “What the World Needs Now Is Love” and the “The Polar Bear Stomp” for their families using props. They also collaborated on crafts and shared heart-shaped cookies.

“There was a great turnout of ENL students and their families, and overall the night was a great success,” said ENL teacher Danielle Finocchiaro.
