Second Graders Study Sea Life


Second grade students at West Gates Avenue Elementary School had the opportunity to experience marine life from the comfort of their classroom. Representatives from the Cornell Cooperative Extensions of Suffolk County brought the beach to the classroom through the Seashore Safari and Marine Reptiles and Their Land Buddies programs. Students were given hands on experience with local marine life and taught fun facts about each creature. Students explored seashore safari animals including hermit crabs, clams, mussels, oysters and a horseshoe crab, before switching classes to study a bearded dragon, leopard gecko, a diamond back terrapin and two snakes; a ball python and a corn snake.            

Students who enjoyed the experience could further their understanding of the subject by visiting the programs website at  

Middle School Students Make Mindful Portraits


Seventh grade students in Sean Mcgevna’s art class at the Lindenhurst Middle School recently enjoyed a visit from portrait artist Gary Long. Long is a retired art teacher from NYC, who currently teaches and exhibits as a full-time professional artist on the east end.  During his visit he explored with students the mindfulness of portraiture and the ability to render a human face with a true "likeness." Long shared with students the “four valuable conceptual aids using the sight-size method of drawing/painting” which establish the foundation for accurate drawing. He encouraged students to train their sense organs to see things as they really are and shared examples of his work.            

“When you are emotionally energized by something, there is nothing stoping you,” said Long. “You are only held back by you.”
