Columbus and Webster Schools Begin Readathons

November 11, 2017 - 10:12

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- As three elementary schools wrapped up their month-long readathons this week, they passed the baton to two others - Columbus Elementary School and Daniel Webster Magnet School.

Students at Columbus and Webster began their readathons on Wednesday, setting out to see how much they could read during the month of November. In many of the readathons, students find sponsors to donate to the PTAs for every minute they spend with the written word. At Webster, the funds raised will go to improving the school's Learning Garden, possibly to buy a greenhouse.

New Garden is the Buzz at Columbus

November 11, 2017 - 10:03

NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Columbus Elementary School second-graders helped assemble a wooden bed for an outdoor garden recently with the hope that, if you build it, they will buzz.

It is the first of five garden beds that will be built, not only to grow colorful flowers, but to create a mini-ecosystem where bees hover, butterflies flit and birds wing in for visits.

"I love planting flowers, because they give a good scent and that attracts the bees," said student Kaily Chavez. "It's important for the bees because that's their food."
