Stewart Manor School’s Lego Robotics team had a successful season, participating in both the FIRST Lego League Challenge’s FIRST Long Island Qualifier in January and the FIRST Long Island Championship on March 10. The team participated in the MASTERPIECE challenge, tasked with imagining and innovating new ways to create and communicate art across the globe.

The team is comprised of students in grades 4-6 who underwent an application process. Under the guidance of advisers Parveen Rampal and James Ristano, the students created a virtual museum.

At the qualifier event in January, Stewart Manor’s team received the Champion’s Award for their design, as well as the opportunity to advance to the championship round. They were once again victorious, as they were recognized as the First Finalist for the Innovation Project Award at the championship.

This is the second year of the Lego Robotics team at Stewart Manor School.

Stewart Manor School first graders in Taylor Miklus’ class celebrated National Children’s Dental Health Month, which is observed every February, with a visit from local dental hygienist and Ms. Miklus’ mother, Lisa Miklus.

Mrs. Miklus discussed with the class why it’s important to take care of their teeth, explaining how to floss, how to brush their teeth, what foods are healthy or not healthy for teeth, and to visit the dentist yearly to get their teeth checked.

Each student practiced brushing on a replica mouth and completed a “How to Care for my Teeth” paper spinning wheel. Later in the school day, the class also read “The Tooth Book” by Edward Miller together.
