Using pins, fabric and sewing machines, Kathleen Ciancio’s seventh and eighth grade family and consumer sciences students at Westhampton Beach Middle School put their sewing skills into practice and learned how to stitch their own face masks. After mastering mask making, the students plan to sew more for those in need.  

 

Expanding Language Skills with Pen Pals

Expanding Language Skills with Pen Pals  thumbnail176858
Spanish teacher Jennifer Anderson’s seventh graders at Westhampton Beach Middle School are expanding their Spanish speaking and writing skills though a new pen pal program.

The students recently met their pen pals, who attend a bilingual school in Buenos Aires, Argentina, via Google Meet. Both cohorts of students spoke about their respective schools, seasonal differences, communities and how life has changed in the last six months. The students all spoke in both Spanish and English.

“My students were very excited to connect with students their age from another country,” said Anderson.

The seventh graders will continue to write and converse with their pen pals throughout the school year to enhance not only their Spanish language skills, but their cultural knowledge as well. The classes will also work collaboratively on global projects.

Free Student Meals

The USDA is extending free meals for all students regardless of eligibility until December 31, 2020 or until federal funds last. Beginning Monday, September 21st, breakfast and lunch will be available free of charge to all our students. Students learning remotely, can pick up meals at the back of the Westhampton Beach High School from 3:30pm - 6:30pm daily. Also due to Covid concerns we will no longer be accepting cash for ala carte transactions for items like snacks and extra beverages. Funds can be added to your child's account by going to myschoolbucks.com or sending in a check payable to WHB Food Service. Thank you for your support as we navigate these changing times.
