Smiles All Around for Dental Awareness Month


In honor of Dental Awareness month, Dr. Joseph Pantaleo and Dr. Terri Ambrose visited OLBSCA on February 10th. Dr. Pantaleo is a dentist from Central Park Dentistry, who also has a nonprofit organization called Tomorrow’s Smile Today. Dr. Ambrose is a pediatric dentist who assisted him. Together they came to educate the students in grades K through 8 on the importance of dental health. Grades K through 3 especially enjoyed learning the correct way to brush their teeth by practicing on the big teeth of the friendly stuffed dinosaur!

An Immigration Celebration

The 8th grade explored the immigration experience at Ellis Island and had the opportunity to research how his or her family arrived in America. Each student created a t-shirt mural that captured his or her culture and family’s journey. The students celebrated their unique identities by showing off the t-shirts and sharing cultural food, clothing, and personal items in class.
