West Babylon School District held its annual fun run and wellness expo at West Babylon Junior High School on May 20. Organized by the school’s Wellness Committee, the event brings together community organizations, Parent-Teacher Associations, students and families for an evening of fun and engaging wellness activities.

On the turf field, the elementary school PTAs set up organized activities for attendees such as cornhole, hula-hoops and obstacle courses. Community organizations were on hand to speak to families, and students lined to get their face painted. The fun run was organized by grade level for students in kindergarten through sixth grade with plenty of cheering on the track as they made their way around. Community members were asked to bring a nonperishable food item for donation to the West Babylon Food Pantry.

Fourth and fifth grade students from Forest Avenue Elementary School recently participated in the Town of Babylon’s Department of Environmental Control sixth annual Waterways Poster Contest in memory of Burt Koza. The students were challenged with creating a poster to raise awareness of the importance of being good stewards in taking care of our planet, specifically the waterways. The Burt Koza Waterways Poster Contest provides students with a way for them to be active members of their community by creating posters to teach others the importance of our local waterways.  

On May 4, the Town of Babylon hosted its Earth Day Celebration at Geiger Park.  Forest Avenue Elementary School students took first, second and third place in the contest.  First place was awarded to Zarah Valentina Gomez (fifth grade), second place was given to Gianna Giannini (fourth grade), and the third place winner was Pearl Kruska (fifth grade). Honorable mentioned were also awarded to Zulmy Fuentes Reyes and Thiago Pintado Garcia.
