During the week of Thanksgiving, Grand Avenue and Merrick Avenue Middle Schools staff were invited into the FACS 7 classes to cook their favorite Thanksgiving dishes for the students.  

“The lesson is used to show students how food brings us all together and is a key element to family and culture,” explained Sarah Norton, a family and consumer sciences teacher. “Each member puts on their own cooking show demonstrating how to make the item, shares the meaning behind the dish and of course provides a tasting.”

Students in Michelle Biancardo’s Tech 8 Arduino class at Grand Avenue Middle School digitally designed fidget spinners prior to 3D printing them.

“Tinkercad is a computer-aided design (CAD) program enabling students todesign, modify, and print 3D objects, experiment with circuits, or learn to code using blocks,” explained Biancardo.

While student Jeremy Dang devised a base for students to model, others became creative with designs like cats, flowers, hexagons and more.

On Nov. 22, students worked on printing last minute touches and assembly of their spinners.

“Constraintsincluded the diameter of the ball bearing and other technical skills to shape and align the spinner parts,” she added.

The results were a spinning success.

This year, Grand Avenue partnered with the North Bellmore Elementary School District to serve the Bellmore-Merrick community to help children in need during the holidays.  

The charitable focus of this year's Turkey Trot on Nov. 21 was to provide new and unused winter hats, gloves, and scarves to the Lions' Club Polar Express. 

“Despite the chilly weather, the kind-hearted compassion and generosity of Grand Avenue's students warmed the event,” explained Spanish teacher/athletic director and event organizer Benjamin Fisher. “Over 250 Grand Avenue student participants walked, jogged, trotted, wobbled, and danced their way through the event.” 

More than 100 individual items were donated by students to be provided to the Polar Express.
