Students in every grade at East Quogue Elementary School shot for the stars in the school’s annual Hoops for Heart event, aimed to raise money for the American Heart Association. 

Participants rotated through a collection of basketball-themed stations such as a dribbling obstacle course, Super Shooter, Jackpot Shot and Knockout, a shooting game. Their athletic efforts raised $6,000 for the AHA, with fifth-grade student Harry Maloney coming out as the top fundraiser. 

The day concluded with the entire school gathered in the gymnasium to watch the building’s teachers compete in Knockout.

Adding to the school’s extraordinary volunteer efforts, teachers recently garnered $260 in donations by participating in Go Red for Women Day, an AHA initiative that raises awareness for the prevalence of heart disease in women.

As part of a recent science unit, fifth-grade students at East Quogue Elementary School explored mixtures, compounds and different states of matter. As a culminating activity to the science unit identifying the differences between a solid, liquid and a gas, the students made their own rock candy by submerging a string into an oversaturated sugar solution and letting the candy crystals form. 

In a separate activity, fifth-grade students learned about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. as they studied some of his famous quotes and described their meanings using their own words.

During a series of experiments, fourth-grade students at East Quogue Elementary School observed the multiple ways energy affects our everyday lives.

In the science lab students conducted experiments identifying the different forms of energy around us, including light, heat and sound. Students learned that when we speak energy is released as sound waves that can be seen in the vibration of a balloon. Also, students explored how thermal energy stored in the body leads to the color changes of a mood ring. Continuing the study of energy, students identified that the potential energy found within a toy’s spring transforms into kinetic energy when wound up.   

As a result of the science discoveries, the student-scientists are eager to further explore the power of light, sound and heat energy.

East Quogue Elementary School students in Ms. Luckingham’s third-grade class recently explored the capabilities of Google Classroom as they used the program to write about their goals for the new year.

During the assignment students practiced essential aspects of the Google Classroom program, such as creating a text box, and typing and changing fonts. Students also learned how to insert, resize and crop photos to fit within their documents. 

In another interactive activity, Ms. Luckingham’s third-grade students teamed up with Ms. Russo’s first-graders for a holiday-themed STEM activity. The students’ task was to design and construct a bridge capable of supporting an elf. Utilizing Popsicle sticks and clay, the student teams worked together to create functional shelves to hold their elves. 

Each team excelled during the activity as they incorporated problem-solving techniques and revisited their designs to make improvements.
