Students at Harborfields High School, Oldfield Middle School, Washington Drive Primary School and Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School are still getting their weekly dose of STEM learning opportunities.
Thanks to a collaborative effort by Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum Instruction and Administration Dr. Rory manning and teachers Jennifer Washington and Drew Lockwood, the students have been tasked with weekly challenges on KidOYO – an educational platform used to teach students creative computing and coding.
Some of the challenges have encouraged students to create animated rainbows while others have challenged students to program and design E-cards using inspirational quotes, digital confetti and songs.
While a new challenge will be posted each week, students will still be able to access past challenges for a chance to earn badges, which are displayed on the KidOYO leaderboard.
“I thought that it would be nice, especially during this time, to spread some positivity across the district,” Ms. Washington said.

main thumbnail167677
Congratulations to Harborfields High School senior Daniel White who recently earned a Silver Key award in the 2020 Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for his phenomenal photography skills.
Each year, nearly 340,000 students submit artwork and writing samples to the Alliance of Young Artists and Writers, which is made up of leaders in the visual and literary arts, as well as Scholastic Awards alumni. The submissions are then judged based on three core values: originality, technical skill and the emergence of personal voice or vision.
Daniel has had an artistic eye since a very young age – a talent and passion that he was eager to pursue as he got older. Currently, he is the lead photographer for the Greenlawn Civic Association. He is also a member of the high school’s interact club and serves as a rowing coach with the Long Island Rowing Club.
After graduation, Daniel is planning to study photography at University of Hartford in Connecticut.
