Walking the hallways of Bellerose Avenue Elementary School just got a bit more energetic. Students walking past the main office towards the school’s primary wing are now greeted with a colorful interactive pathway, with options for them to jump, tiptoe or march down the hallway. 

The hallway also includes areas for hopscotch, toe to heel walking, wall push exercises and a section to show off their best tree pose. 

Elementary Teacher Coordinator Dana Ward said that the pathway was created to nurture the students’ creativity as well as help them develop growth motor skills.   

The idea for the interactive hallway was a collaborative effort by the school’s Shared Decision Making committee, whose mission is to “provide students with the tools which will enable them to develop their abilities and interests.” 

Principal Lori Beekman said that the pathway offers students a break from the classroom. “It’s a nice way for kids to get their wiggles out,” she said. “They took to it like ducks to water.”

Spots Available for Northport High School's Early Childhood Program

Northport High School’s Early Child Education program still has available openings for the Two-Year Old Toddler Program for the 2019-20 school year.

In this program, each toddler is paired with a student from Northport’s Family and Consumer Science class, where students are studying toddler development. The classroom where the program is held is specially designed with learning tools and age-appropriate toys for toddlers aged 2 through 4. The goal of the program is to introduce the children to a classroom environment, provide opportunity for them to learn to separate from their caregivers, and interact with their peers.

In order to qualify for this program, toddlers must be 2 years of age on or before Dec. 31, 2019, families must be residents of the Northport-East Northport School District, and the students will have the ability to regularly attend the program, which is vital to the success of the program.

This class meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11:55 a.m.-12:25 p.m. There is no cost for the program, and parents are responsible for their own transportation of their child.

For interested families or for more information, please call the office of Assistant Principal Richard McAllister at 631-262-6670.
