  • Irrigation Project Update

    The Irrigation Project at the Floral Park-Bellerose School is on schedule to be completed for use by spring. The district took the initiative to begin the irrigation project in advance of the season and is awaiting approval from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation. The three- to six-month approval process was timed to coincide with the change of season, and we are on track to have the system operable as planned. We will be keeping you informed throughout the process of all of our facilities improvement projects.

  • FPBS Journeys Into Native American Culture

    Fourth-grade classes at Floral Park-Bellerose School attended an in-school workshop called Journeys into American Indian Territory. The presentation included discussions, videos, games, a small museum of artifacts and Native American songs and dances. At the end of the day students created small clay ducks of their own utilizing some of the symbols they learned throughout the program. Students were active participants in games Native Americans played in the past, were able to see the clothing they wore and weapons they used, as well as view a replica of a dwelling used by some of the tribes in the United States. The fourth-grade curriculum focuses on the role the Native Americans had on New York and this interactive workshop served as a unique hands-on experience for the students.

Each sixth-grader paired up with one or two kindergartners to talk with them and answer any questions they may have about the school. Throughout the year, the buddies plan to participate in activities and read together, as well as assist with class assignments.
