Deasy Students Catch the Wind

Second-grade students at Deasy School received a lesson in engineering when STEM teacher Jessica McKenna educated them on how wind can be a clean alternate energy source when transformed with the help of technology.

The students learned about windmills and turbines and how they operate. McKenna also showed students a video of a wind turbine from the East End of Long Island and discussed the possibility of a wind farm being installed off the coast of Long Island.

Students used the Engineering Design Process outlined by the Museum of Science in Boston to design and create blades for a windmill design. The seventh-graders worked in pairs to brainstorm and sketch out their designs. Once they decided which designs would be best, they constructed their prototypes.

To conclude the unit, students tested their prototypes. Once testing was complete, they shared their thoughts about why certain designs were successful and why others failed. In STEM, McKenna says, “fail” stands for first attempt at learning. STEM class students are taught not to get discouraged when something doesn't work, but to persevere and redesign if they aren’t successful on the first try. The second-graders were encouraged to think about how they would improve their blades to successfully complete the challenge.

Next year, the second-grade students will bring their knowledge of STEM to Landing School and will continue their STEM exploration with Landing STEM teacher Kenneth Altamirano.

Deasy First-Graders Celebrate Dad


First-graders at Deasy School spent quality time with their dads when the school held its annual Father’s Day celebration on June 14.
During the morning event, students and their fathers played kickball, under the guidance of physical education teacher Christopher MacDonald. They also enjoyed a snack and constructed wooden toolboxes, thanks to Home Depot. The retail chain donated the materials for the toolbox activity, which included work aprons for the students. The first-grade dads were also presented with pictures and stories that the students had created.   

Deasy Students Learn About Fish


First-graders at Deasy School learned about the anatomy of fish when the Long Island Children’s Museum outreach program Fish Tales took place at their school on May 16. The students learned about the function of different organs, and even got to taste a piece of cooked fish!

Deasy Families Gather for International Night


The Deasy Outreach Committee hosted International Night on May 17 at Finley Middle School and Deasy Elementary School.

The evening began in Finley’s cafeteria, with Deasy families arriving with a variety of ethnic homemade entrees and desserts, including rice and beans, a Peruvian potato dish, as well as salads and pasta selections to share. After dinner, families moved from the middle school to Deasy’s All Purpose Room, where Aloha Dancers entertained them. The children and parents also had the opportunity to put on grass skirts and test out their hula skills. At the end of the evening, Deasy School Principal Ken Craft adorned a headdress and hula skirt and danced the last hula of the night. It was a wonderful evening for everyone in attendance.
