At Frank P. Long Intermediate School, students not only are encouraged to be expressive, but have been showcasing their dramatic talents on the stage.

Students who are members of the Actor’s Studio, an enrichment club that met once a week throughout the school year, recently performed “When in Doubt, Laugh It Out.” Under the direction of Trish Gallina and Cami Ciervo, the montage of skits was much like a Saturday Night Live comedy for kids. The numbers resembled summer camp skits. Students started rehearsing in January and performed live for parents and peers in June. 

Fifth grade students in Patricia Kraker’s and Suzanne Olivotti-Dodge’s classes also held performances of William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” and “Romeo and Juliet” in the courtyard learning lab. Dressed in period costumes, the students presented a more modern and fun-filled version of the author’s tragedies as presented by Brendan P. Kelso’s series “Playing with Plays.” Not only did the students learn to appreciate Shakespeare’s works and language, they learned stage direction, elocution and performance skills.

Rockstar Readers

Jasmyn Jackson in Mr. Tortora’s class and Samuel Sorto in Ms. E. Kelly’s class were rock star readers this year! Jasmyn checked out books 79 times and Sam checked out books 73 times from the library media center this school year. Jasmyn and Sam received a canvas bag with three new chapter books, a magnetic bookmarks, and some goodies. Keep up the great reading in middle school! (Thank you to Ms. Belford, library media specialist at Kreamer Street Elementary School, for the inspiration.)

Learning the Power of Spark

During an assembly with “The Donut Fix” author Jessie Janowitz, Frank P. Long Intermediate School students learned that there are three important elements to writing a story or book: spark, the question of what if? and revision. 

The popular author, whose second book “The Donut King” was released on May 14, read the first two pages of “The Donut Fix,” shared her inspiration for the story and led the students through exercises to excite them about the writing process. She also shared her preferences for stories with lots of character and dialogue and referenced several books that meet that description.

Students brought their own journals to write down notes and to record their own “sparks.” Students who ordered Ms. Janowitz’s book also had the opportunity to meet the author and have their book signed. 

Ms. Janowitz’s visit not only excited the students, many of whom have read “The Donut Fix,” but encouraged them to pursue their own writing.
