District’s String Musicians Rock Out

West Babylon School District’s orchestra students had a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to play alongside a famous musician, thanks to an artist-in-residence program with Mark Wood, one of the founding members of the Trans-Siberian Orchestra. Mr. Wood visited with the student-musicians in grade 5-12 from throughout the West Babylon School District on March 14 and 15. Mr. Wood, a native Long Islander, worked with students for two days on a variety of rock songs from the ‘80s and ‘90s, including artists like AC/DC, Coldplay and Bon Jovi. As part of the Evolution Tour and the “Electrify Your Symphony” concert, Mr. Wood played in concert alongside the 220 West Babylon student-musicians during a show at the West Babylon Junior High School on March 15.

Finding Plant Life in Unexpected Places

The fifth graders at Santapogue Elementary School have been studying weather and deposition as part of their recent science unit. As the weather improved, the students ventured into the courtyard to continue their hands-on lessons. Students observed plants that were growing in unexpected places, such as in cracks in the concrete and in the rock garden. The students had to locate three different plants, sketch the plants and measure the width of the crack and height and width of the plants. When they returned to the classroom, the students reflected on if they were surprised by any of their outdoor findings.
