The Power of Mentoring at KLSD
A web of mentoring crisscrosses our district--relationships between people of varying levels of expertise that encourage both parties to learn and grow.

Below are three glimpses of mentoring in action: kindergarteners working alongside high school students to design a better doghouse, middle school orchestra members playing with high school musicians, and a science research student finding direction from a scientist actively working in her chosen field--then adding another strand to the web by volunteering at an elementary school's science fair.
The Doghouse Project Packs a Lot of Happiness into STEM
The Doghouse Project creates an exciting bridge between district kindergarteners and high school students enrolled in Design & Draw for Production.

While the most thrilling moment is the morning that the high school students visit the kindergarten classes, the genius of the project is the import it brings to both age groups’ work. 

Musical Mentorship Engages, Connects and Inspires
There's a new program that engages both middle and high school orchestra members. It's the Big/Little program created by music teacher Elissa Leventhal. S tudents in the two schools' orchestras connect through playing musical games and learning new music together.

"I am very excited for younger orchestra members to be mentored and inspired by more experienced high school musicians," said Leventhal.
Ashley Stagnari Wins 1st Place for Science Research
Congratulations to senior Ashley Stagnari, winner in the Earth and Environmental Science category of the region's Junior Science and Humanities Symposium.

Each student in the Science Research program works closely with Ann Marie Lipinsky, the director of John Jay's science research program, as well as a scientist in the student's field of study.
