Dutch Lane School students in grades two through five participated in a unique and important learning opportunity when “The Kids on the Block” troupe, sponsored by the Epilepsy Foundation of Long Island, visited our school and presented a puppet show. Students learned how to help a child experiencing a seizure and had the opportunity to ask the presenters several questions about Epilepsy. At the conclusion of the assembly, everyone sang a song titled, “All Kids Are Different” along with the puppets.
Dutch Lane School took a trip back to pre-historic times when Dinoman visited Dutch Lane School. Students experienced a three-dimensional timeline from those times until now and how time is divided into eras. Students learned about the Mesozoic era, how fossils are formed and proof that dinosaurs really did exist!
Dutch Lane had its first “annual” Kinder “garden” planting ceremony. Each fall, our entering Kindergarten students will plant tulip bulbs to celebrate “putting down roots” at the Dutch Lane School. Each spring, our fifth grade students will commemorate the garden by planting a garden stone they create, as they “flex their wings” towards the middle school.
Dutch Lane proudly wore patriotic colors in honor of Constitution Day. The students, faculty and staff gathered near the flag to participate in "Pledge Across America,” a program that invites students across the United States to participate in a simultaneous Pledge of Allegiance.
