    Eggert Elementary Hosts Third Annual International Night

    Eggert Elementary hosted its third annual International Night on Thursday, April 18. The event offered opportunities for Eggert students and their families to learn about and celebrate different cultures, experience different foods, and participate in cultural crafts and activities.  The event was attended by more than 400 students and families.     Upon their arrival at International Night, families were able to view a school-wide art show featuring international-themed artwork created by Eggert students, participate in an international scavenger hunt and complete traditional crafts. Some of the crafts included creating Kente cloths from Ghana, Origami from Japan, Rangoli sand art from India, and more.  In addition to crafts there were international foods to sample.  The menu included chicken empanadas from Sabores de Mi Tierra, sushi, dumplings, and noodles from DAO Sushi & Grill, traditional Indian food from Taj of Orchard Park, and sausage with sauerkraut from Butcher Dave’s.  Families were able to visit countries around the world using virtual reality in the library, learn about Taekwondo from Master Chong’s Taekwondo, check out the Slyboots Circus interactive drum ensemble in the gymnasium, and take pictures at a family photo booth.  International Night offered so many fun and engaging activities!     Click here to learn more.

  •  OPMS student drives an RC car through the track students built.

    Students Use Math To Create RC Racetrack City

    OPMS students in Mr. Bischof's class built a 1:64 scale city and racetrack for their RC race cars in math class. Students chose landmarks to create and build as a part of the track. They used their knowledge of proportions, scale, geometry, and measurement to take real-world dimensions and scale them down to the size of their RC race cars. Once the models were complete, students were able to drive the RC cars through the racetrack. They had a view from the driver seat of the car with cameras that snap onto the cars and augmented reality goggles!

    Eggert Elementary Students Launch Eggert's Best

    Students in Mrs. Funigiello's class at Eggert Elementary launched Eggert's Best this fall. They offer pop-up stands serving, coffee, tea, hot cocoa, and chocolate-covered pretzels. So far this year, they have delivered beverages like coffee, tea, and cocoa to staff at Eggert Elementary in addition to utilizing their storefront where faculty and staff members come to them to place their orders. The students even took a field trip to the Orchard Park Central School District Offices and had a pop-up stand there! Eggert's Best provides its students an opportunity to work on their social skills: greeting customers, taking orders, and communicating a customer's order to their peers. They are working on cooking and occupational therapy skills like sequencing a recipe, measuring ingredients, safely handling food items, identifying ingredients, and assembling the final products! The hot cocoa with marshmallows, peppermint, and whipped cream comes highly recommended!
