Sixth graders in Christy Roxo’s family and consumer science class at Oldfield recently worked on hand and machine stitches to create snowmen for their sewing unit. The students have been improving their fine motor coordination by learning sewing stitches such as running and overcast stitches. They also learned how to make a pattern, sew on a button and use a sewing machine. The sixth graders will finish their FACS projects by adding their own creativity using any learned stitches.

Fifth graders at Thomas J. Lahey Elementary School participated in the “Chain Reaction” program by the Frankel Sisters on Jan. 13. The musical assembly, sponsored by the school’s PTA, encouraged positive interactions to support social and emotional health and well-being.

“The Frankel Sisters’ songs and messages were about being kind to others through words and actions,” Assistant Principal Andrea Horowitz said. “They demonstrated how one positive, kind act can cause a ‘chain reaction,’ encouraging others to do the same.”

TJL students later worked on a follow-up activity where they wrote messages on colorful strips, serving as a reminder of what was learned from the presentation.
