Celebrating March Madness with Cereal Box Challenge

Forest Avenue Elementary School combined a community giving effort with a fun learning activity. Throughout March, the school collected boxes of cereal to donate to the West Babylon Senior High School food pantry and local families. Each week, the school would tally which cereal was voted the most popular by the number of donations to determine the March Madness Cereal Champion. After the month of collection was complete, the students celebrated by creating a giant cereal box domino run. Fruity Pebbles was crowned the champion.

Students in Ms. Shaw’s class at Forest Avenue Elementary School celebrated nutrition week at their school prior to spring break. They were given colored T-shirts from the class parents to represent the color of vegetables and fruits. Each student had their chance to shine with their T-shirt. The students learned the value of eating healthy in a fun way.

On March 4, Forest Avenue Elementary School hosted a pajama night, sponsored by the school’s Parent-Teacher Association. This year’s wonderful reading event was reimagined and went virtual. Students logged on to see and hear their teachers – and some special guests – read aloud. The literacy night joined families together for a night of special books and even included milk and cookies (sent with each student via a take-home bag).
