Woodhull Elementary School sixth graders captured first place in the multimedia category for third through 12th graders in the 33rd annual Walt Whitman Birthplace Association Student Poetry Contest. 

For their submission, the students collectively wrote a poem called “A Limitless Future” and included a corresponding collage-like drawing that each student had contributed to. The winning group was honored during a special ceremony at the Walt Whitman Birthplace in Huntington on April 7.

For the fifth consecutive year, Woodhull Elementary School has been recognized by the National Association of Music Merchants Foundation for its support of music education. 

The organization bestowed the SupportMusic Merit Award on individual schools participating in the “Best Communities for Music Education” survey that meet criteria relating to music program content, resources, staffing, scheduling and opportunities for students. A separate designation is given to school districts.

Woodhull offers all students at least two periods of music per week. All students in third through sixth grade participate in instrumental ensembles and have an additional period of music per week. Vocal music is incorporated into classroom music, and the school also produces a theatrical musical every winter featuring all PK-6 students.

“It’s a very unique thing to have 100% of students in a grade level participate in instrumental music,” said Woodhull music teacher Philip Tamberino. “I enjoy it because I do believe music is for everyone and it teaches valuable life skills.” 

A Reef of Readers

Celebrating Reading at Woodhull photo

Woodhull Elementary School students and staff demonstrated their love of reading this March, as the school once again participated in the New York State PTA’s Pick a Reading Partner program, promoting reading through a monthlong series of activities and events.

During this annual event, the school designates a unifying theme for the program to enhance its more creative elements. This year’s theme is “Reader’s Reef,” with art created by students adorning the main hallway, as well as a vibrant mural by Board member and Fire Island parent Kate Skelly-Kurka. Students also received T-shirts featuring Pick a Reading Partner-themed artwork by Woodhull student Jaxson Adams. 

Throughout the month, students keep track of their reading at home, logging the number of minutes. They turn in these logs each week and advance their likeness on a large board in the hallway, which this year represents each student as an underwater sea creature. Students participate in literacy-promoting activities like karaoke, wearing gear that has writing on it to school, reading a story or poem to another student during recess or dressing up as a literary character. The month is traditionally kicked off with a schoolwide breakfast and closed with a schoolwide pizza party.
