  • Digging in for the Earth

    Green thumbs were abundant on Earth Day at Somers Intermediate School. Students celebrated the day by weeding and planting their school garden. “It was fun to be outside and know that we were helping the earth,” says Isabella Ciavardini, a fourth-grade student in Beth Monteleone’s class. Students in several different classes helped prepare pots of flowers that were to be planted for every class in the school. Each class then had the opportunity to head to the garden to plant their class’s special flower. “We put some new soil in the garden and dug some holes and took weeds out,” says Matthew Van Tassell. “It is caring for the earth and it makes it a better place.”

  • Full S.T.E.A.M. Ahead at SIS

    The third-grade students at Somers Intermediate School ventured on a virtual field trip to Challenge Island recently. The children built working windmills from household items to understand first-hand how wind’s kinetic energy can be harnessed by a windmill or wind turbine, and then transferred to mechanical power or electricity. “We used paper towel and toilet paper rolls, popsicle sticks, paper cups and yarn,” says student Laurel Knapp.
