Beyond the Classroom Walls...

Ms. Realmutto
Students in the Gardening class will be continuing the fall clean-up in the garden.

Marine Park Robotics
Mr. Gamsey's Marine Park Robotics class ventured to the Animal Medical Center of NY (AMCNY), one of the largest animal hospitals in the country. This year's First Lego League (FLL) theme is called "Animal Allies". To help with their research, the teams met Dr. Goldstein, the Chief Medical Director for the hospital. He and his staff gave the students a "behind the scenes" tour of the hospital. Some of the departments we saw were the emergency room. intensive care unit, surgical suite, dental lab, physical therapy, cancer care and catheter lab. We watched as dogs were having their teeth cleaned; having a cardiac stent inserted; recovering from surgery, and going through physical therapy. It was a unique, once in a lifetime experience for the students.
