Second Graders Weigh, Measure, Carve & Count

pumpkin math

Pumpkin Math, a second-grade tradition at Increase Miller Elementary, brims with good humor, curiosity and a sense of adventure!

The wonderful investigation of the great gourd's inside and out reinforces math skills students are learning in the classroom, adds in science exploration, and incorporates reading, writing and creativity. MORE

Celebrating Safe Streets & Everyday Exercise

KES celebrates walk & bike to school

“Hey, we can run a mile in less than ten minutes. Why are we walking?” With that, a group of students took off down the sidewalk, adding running to Walk and Bike to School Day at Katonah Elementary!

Walk and Bike to School is an annual fall event at KES that celebrates safe streets and everyday exercise. One Friday each October, the school arranges for three morning meeting spots. Families gather at the one that is closest to them, and head to school together. MORE

Empowering Students to Think Like Scientists

Kindergarteners scurry around their classroom, looking behind books and in little pockets of classroom displays for small slips of paper with acorns printed on them. When a child finds one, they stand tall and still, like a tree.  

The Meadow Pond Elementary students are acting out what happens to many of the nuts hidden by squirrels which are not found and eaten each winter. “They become trees!” said the kindergarteners. The game was part of program called Animals and Plants Change their Environment, led by PNW BOCES’ Center for Environmental Education. MORE

Tech 8 Takes Spiky Hair Challenge

Tech 8 takes challenge

"There’s a new series in development called Spiky Hair and the producers need you to come up with the character design."

That’s the quest that technology teacher Evan Lucieer gave his eighth graders, and they are up to the challenge.

Along the way, students flex their coding skills in BlocksCAD, a 3D modeling tool. It builds on Scratch, which they used in sixth and seventh grades, and prepares them for AutoCAD, an application they’ll use in ninth grade Design & Draw for Production. MORE

Testing the Waters at Lake Waccabuc

AP Environmental Science

Brooke Habinowski and Olivia Ofer wade into Lake Waccabuc carrying small vials to fill with water. Back at the worktable, the two seniors will test the samples for nitrates and phosphates.

Local fieldwork in Katonah-Lewisboro’s wealth of open space is what makes John Jay’s AP Environmental Science one of the school’s signature classes. Taught by Joe Gaudio and Matthew Funnell, it catches students who already love nature and develops their skills in observation and analysis. MORE
