Davison Avenue has partnered with Crossroads Farm to engage fourth-graders in the farm’s Sow to Grow program. Students learn all aspects of the plant life cycle, as well as the tenets of organic farming, from soil blocking all the way through harvesting of crops. Students recently worked with members from Crossroads Farm to block soil and plant seeds. For the next month, they will care for their seedlings and in April, they will visit the farm to plant their seeds. They will return to the farm one more time in June to harvest their vegetables and prepare a feast with their organic produce.

Sweet Treats

In honor of Valentine’s Day, the Davison Avenue PTA hosted a Bake Shop. Classes visited the decorated STEM lab to frost and decorate their very own cupcake. What a “sweet” treat!

In honor of the Winter Olympics, each class at Davison Avenue is representing a country and participating in schoolwide activities. To kick-off the celebration, each class marched in an opening ceremony led by administrators, members of the school’s Special Forces, and Olympic Gold Medalist and Malverne alum Derrick Adkins. Each class took an athlete’s oath and then participated in Global Play Day, rotating from class-to-class with their “passports” to play games from around the world.
