A Day of Civics

As part of its role as a NYS Civic Readiness Pilot School, Bellport High School hosted its first Civics Day on Jan. 21. The day was planned and organized by Director of Humanities Jaclyn O’Hagan, Lead Teacher for Social Studies Andrew Budris and Library Media Specialist Colleen Oates-Robesch. All government classes participated in this informative and engaging event, which was part of a project known as Generation Citizen that teaches students how to advocate for civic change. The teachers involved were Patrick Brady, Andrew Budris, Dennis Pluth, Lea Roth and Joseph Scioli.

O’Hagan opened Civics Day with the following remarks:

“On January 17, 2022, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday marked the 27th anniversary of the national day of service. This day was established to honor the life and legacy of Dr. King, and to encourage all Americans to volunteer to make a positive change in their communities. Dr. King stated so powerfully: ‘Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, what are you doing for others?' Our world has been faced with life-changing events. It’s you who have made a difference and are helping others through your advocacy work. We’re inspired by your passion, civic participation and opportunity to experience real-world democracy. You’re the voices. You’re the future. You’re the change-makers.”

During the event, held in the school’s library, Generation Citizen students presented projects they have been working on that involved researching an issue in their community, devising a solution to the issue and then asking community stakeholders to implement a solution. Projects addressed topics such as financial obstacles associated with college admissions, school start times, litter prevention, bolstering extracurricular participation in elementary schools and increasing custodial staff within school buildings.

Additionally, students heard from keynote speaker Assemblyman Joe DeStefano, who spoke about his career and the importance of being involved in one’s community.

Bellport High School students now have access to a wider variety of book titles through the school’s new Equity Library.

The Equity Library, which is housed within the school’s main library, was inaugurated this school year as the result of a collaborative curriculum enhancement review conducted by the English Language Arts Department and led by Jaclyn O'Hagan, director of humanities and Monica Pullows-Tetuan, director of ELL, Bilingual and World Language programs. Titles currently offered were evaluated and new ones that would provide students with access to fiction and nonfiction texts with diverse characters and stories were explored.

“It is important to provide students with windows and mirrors through characters who come from a variety of backgrounds and content that shines a light on diverse lived experiences,” said librarian Colleen Oates-Robesch.

Classes and individual students are already using the Equity Library. ELA students recently participated in a book tasting, complete with a menu of books and viewing of book trailers, where they “tasted” a variety of titles. During Hispanic Heritage Month, students took part in literature circles, where they worked in small groups to read and discuss books written by Hispanic authors or featuring Hispanic characters.

The books were all purchased with Title I funds and include titles such as “Just Mercy” by Bryan Stevenson, “Dear Martin” by Nic Stone, “The Poet X” by Elizabeth Acevedo, “Brown Girl Dreaming” by Jacqueline Woodson, and “March” by John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell.
