3-B Students Participate in the International Ken-Ken Challenge

On December 16th, four students from Mr. Bernarducci’s class: Anna Baba, Kohei Tada, Makio Matsukawa, and Masaki Tatezawa competed in the International Ken Ken Competition. They competed against students from different countries throughout the world. There were three rounds where the students had to solve the Ken Ken Math puzzles in a certain amount of time. All the students did their best and were some of the youngest participants in the entire tournament. They represented their class and Greenvale and we are so proud of them.

Greenvale Winter Concert

This week Greenvale students participated in our annual Winter Concert.   On Tuesday  morning students in the Orchestra, Band, and Chorus entertained the students and faculty with their musical talents.   On Thursday evening, the students performed for their parents at the Eastchester High School auditorium.    Enjoying the talents of our students was a special holiday treat for all.

Dear Greenvale Family,

We have done a fantastic job with our fundraising projects this school year. I am proud to inform you that we have collected six boxes of toys during the toy drive.  Thank you so much for sending in toys.  The Ugly Sweater contest will generate additional funds to purchase gift cards to be donated along with the toys.  Thank you again, parents, for all of your support.  The children are delighted and proud to give back to the community.

Have a Great Weekend!

Earthquake Design Challenge: Class 4-G

The students in 4 G became civil engineers for a day. Their job was to make models of buildings with marshmallows and toothpicks at least 15 centimeters high. Then conduct an experiment to test how well their structure would stand up under the stress of an earthquake.

The earthquake was simulated with a pan of Jello. The more the Jello was wiggled, the greater the earthquake’s magnitude. This was an engaging challenge that can be done at home.
