Shortly before this year’s Veterans Day, students at Nokomis Elementary School welcomed past Nokomis student, High School North alumni and recent United States Marine boot camp graduate Amadeus Garay-Reyes for a special visit.

Over the past few months, third-grade students in Laura Clifford and Tara Erb’s class, including Amadeus’ younger brother Tyler, have been in contact with the new Marine during his time in boot camp, sending messages of encouragement, along with questions about his experience as a beginning military member. Amadeus replied to students with answers to their questions and thanks for their unwavering support. 

During the in-class visit, Amadeus thanked the students personally for their kind words and encouraged them to always try their best in everything they do. He continued the visit by answering more questions for the students and explained what Veterans Day means to him.  

Concluding the eventful day, Amadeus was surprised by his favorite teacher Bill O’Neil, who was his inspiration growing up.

Sachem students at Nokomis Elementary School were visited by members of the Ronkonkoma Fire Department as the district continued its emphasis on fire safety and prevention.

Students across all grade levels learned about the various gear that firefighters wear during emergency situations, such as a self-contained breathing apparatus which provides firefighters air as they enter a smoke-filled structure, how to safely escape a fire and the importance of knowing more than one way to exit their home if necessary. 

Concluding the fire prevention assembly program, students were guided through the multiple firefighting apparatuses within the department and had the opportunity to explore a fire truck.

As part of a life science lesson, Nokomis Elementary School students explored aquatic pond organisms during a presentation by the Department of Environmental Conservation. 

During the interactive presentation, fourth-grade students from Nokomis Elementary were asked to identify the segmented parts that make up each organism. Equipped with magnifying lenses, the students began to inspect the pond organisms and worked together to sketch the individual parts. Among the various pond organisms were tadpoles, dragonfly nymphs and crawfish. The students also learned of the larger species that inhabit ponds and their unique roles as predators within the ecosystem. 

At the conclusion of the activity, David Pomeranz and Maggie McCabe from the DEC initiated a conversation amongst the students about how each segment of the organisms serves a purpose out in the wild.
