Oakwood teacher Mr. Watts and his 2nd graders helped cut the ribbon on the District’s two new digital planetariums.

On Friday morning, March 29th our South Huntington family cheered the grand opening of our new Digitalis Digital Planetarium. This dynamic, mobile teaching center, made possible through New York State Smart Schools Funds, provides state-of-the-art, interactive learning experiences within the district’s own schools and facilities. The two Planetarium additions are part of our on-going mission to use the very latest STEAM-based equipment and programs and encourage students to literally reach for the creative stars. Board of Education President Nicholas Ciappetta was effusive in his praise of the Planetarium initiative, saying “This new equipment represents yet another step in our quest to provide the very finest experiences for our South Huntington students.”   Board Vice President, Laura Carey, who supervises the South Huntington Curriculum Council, added: “The fact that our district was able to purchase these 21st Century devices at no cost to the taxpayers represents a creative win/win scenario for students and community members alike.”
