At the district’s annual STEAM Night, held at Elwood Middle School on Jan. 24, the fine arts were integrated into the thematic activities, reflected in this year’s fair’s title, “Exploring the Sights and Sounds of STEAM.” Through art and music, students from kindergarten through eighth grade explored sound, amplitude, frequency, the Fibonacci sequence, coding and the force of gravity.

“Simple experiments and activities help children to develop big ideas and problem solve, helping them to make sense of the world around them all while having fun,” said Dawn Valle, Elwood’s director of math, science, technology and federal grants.

Retiring Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction Dr. Maureen Hull was honored for her more than six years of dedicated leadership at the Elwood School District Board of Education’s Jan. 26 meeting.

Dr. Hull joined Elwood’s administrative team in 2016 after working in the Port Jefferson School District for a decade, first as director of English language arts and social studies and then as executive director of curriculum and instruction. Prior to Port Jefferson, Dr. Hull served as an elementary principal in the Comsewogue School District and an assistant principal in the Harborfields School District, and as a band director for the Harborfields and Amityville School Districts.

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Dr. Hull in two districts for a combined 13 years,” Superintendent Dr. Kenneth Bossert said. “Of every educator I’ve ever had the opportunity to collaborate with and to work alongside, she ranks as the most passionate, dedicated champion for children that one could ever hope to represent our school district.”

“I wish all the best for much success for our students, our staff and our community,” Dr. Hull said.
