In addition to academics, health and safety are paramount to a student’s education. During the week of May 6-10, Shore Road students explored various options for remaining healthy and safe through attendance during several assemblies and guest speaker visits. The assemblies were also in line with the district’s leadership principle of continuous improvement, “mind, body, heart.” 

The week commenced with a visit from eighth grade positive student leaders from Grand Avenue Middle School who spoke to the sixth grade students at Shore Road about being proactive by doing well in middle school, keeping healthy and becoming involved. Shore Road School’s fifth grade peer buddies also visited Winthrop Avenue School students with advice on doing well in school and in their personal lives. This activity followed with a visit from AAA representatives who gave tips on bicycle safety. Nassau County police officer Yolanda Turner also presented tips for keeping safe in the community and online, while Christine Arnouse from the Long Island Crisis Center met with sixth graders to talk about anger management and handling strong emotions. The week concluded with a performance by Patricia Shih, Big ideas in Health and Safety, who engaged the school in ideas about healthy eating, getting enough sleep and exercising every day.
