Babylon Elementary School Students, Staff Familiarize Themselves with Different Forms of Communication

BABYLON, NEW YORK (January 2024)—Students and staff at Babylon Elementary School recently had the opportunity to familiarize themselves with alternative forms of communication. By learning these different, non-verbal methods of communicating, members of the school community are able to better interact with their peers who may struggle with speech.

As part of the effort, BES Speech Pathologist Kelly Baccari led a series of grade-level assemblies on communication boards. The boards display a number of symbols and pictures that students can point towards to convey certain interactions. By using the boards, the students learned new ways to invite their friends to play at recess. The students look forward to using these communication boards on the playground when the weather becomes warmer!

Students Learn About the Different Components of Nonfiction Text

BABYLON, NEW YORK (January 2024)—Students in Ms. Kennedy’s third grade class at Babylon Memorial Grade School recently received a lesson in media literacy, and were tasked with identifying and understanding the different components of nonfiction text.

As part of the lesson, students read issues of Scholastic News Magazine and identified different components of the articles. The students highlighted and cut out the headlines, subhead lines, captions, charts and graphics from the articles to complete a scavenger hunt. The lesson gave the students practice with looking at the ways in which news is conveyed both in print and online.

Schools Spend December, January Spreading Cheer Through Music

BABYLON, NEW YORK (January 2024)—The Babylon School District wrapped its winter concert season this month after several weeks filled with beautiful music. Students at every grade level practiced tirelessly to put on the best show possible for their family and friends in attendance at each Babylon school.

The season began at the start of December with Babylon Elementary School, where the District’s youngest sang holiday tunes to the delight of parents and staff. Just before the holiday break, the band, orchestra and chorus at Babylon Junior-Senior High School impressively showed off their months of hard work and generated holiday memories to be remembered for years to come. Finally, in January, the student musicians and singers at Babylon Memorial Grade School put on an unforgettable two-part show.
