From today forward, every child who starts school in Oceanside will experience SMILES - that's the acronym for the new learning lab at the School #6 Kindergarten Center. The lab's full name is Six's Magical Innovation & Learning Exploration Space. Senator Todd Kaminsky, who helped the district secure the grant funding that made the space possible, cut the big red ribbon at the lab's entry. Kindergarteners handed out tour tickets to visitors and guided them in the use of each learning station. Dr. Phyllis S. Harrington, Superintendent of Schools, called SMILES a "long-held vision that has become a reality." FIOS1 News was on hand to document the event: http://www.fios1news.com/longisland/local-oceanside-school-number-6-smiles-lab-may-4-2018#.WuyoRGQrL1s>
Our own videographer/teacher, Mrs. Audrey Miller, documented the inspiration and transformation that culminated with this amazing event.
