Cucinella Teacher Spotlight: Ms. Sonzogni, Mrs. Draghi, and Mrs. Melendez In this week's edition of our Teacher Spotlight, we turn our attention to the collaborative efforts of Ms. Sonzogni, Mrs. Draghi, and Mrs. Melendez. Last week, these dedicated educators brought together their 1st and 5th grade students for a unique peer learning experience. Ms. Sonzogni and Mrs. Melendez's 5th graders joined forces with Mrs. Draghi's 1st grade class, creating partnerships that led to a meaningful exchange. During this interactive session, students were paired up and participated in a "getting-to-know-you" interview with their newfound buddies. Subsequently, the older students extended their support to their younger counterparts, assisting them in articulating their preferences and interests in writing. This engaging and collaborative learning opportunity not only fostered connections but also allowed the older students to showcase their reading and writing proficiency while nurturing their 1st-grade buddies. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to Ms. Sonzogni, Mrs. Draghi, and Mrs. Melendez for their dedication to our students' growth and the creation of these impactful learning experiences.
We are all showing our OFRS blue and yellow SCHOOL SPIRIT!!! 💛📣💙
What a beautiful day... for installing a playground! It's getting there.
Math Games build strategic thinking and problem solving skills. Our first graders are loving playing a game of "Penny Dice". Math is fun at OFRS!
The playground installation crew was back in action today after a brief weather delay. It's coming along! We are about 5 days from completion, weather permitting of course.
Our new Pre-K program is thriving! Our "Bitty Bowsers" bring so much joy to the building.
