Leigh Shaw thumbnail184930
Leigh Shaw was appointed principal of Hampton Street School, effective July 1. Ms. Shaw has five years of experience in the district and was hired as an instructional leader for grades pre-K through 12. In this administrative position, Shaw was responsible for professional development, coaching and supporting teachers and teacher leaders, formal teacher observations and special projects focused on furthering the district’s mission. One project Shaw is exceptionally proud of is embedding a schoolwide enrichment model throughout the district, including virtual enrichment clusters in both Spanish and English, as well as supporting the development of the double accelerated seventh grade math course.

            Most recently, Shaw served as the district’s virtual school principal for pre-K through second grade. This position allowed her to get to know Hampton’s learners and families on a deeper level. Additionally, she taught the fourth grade academically gifted program throughout this school year. Prior to working in the Mineola UFSD, Shaw spent the majority of her career as a teacher at P.S. 334 – The Anderson School, in Manhattan. She holds a bachelor’s degree in legal studies from the University of Wisconsin, a master’s degree in childhood education from Hofstra University and an advanced degree in school leadership from Hunter College.


Earth Day Festivities

As part of ongoing celebrations of Earth Day, students at Hampton Street School are getting outdoors and participating in activities to help our planet. Over the course of three days, each grade level circled through stations of different tasks led by STEAM teacher Lisa Richards.

Students participated in schoolwide planting projects. Kindergarten classes planted zinnias, first graders continued to develop monarch waystations and second grade classes established a native species garden. The goal of the planting projects is to help the environment and wildlife, while also beautifying the school grounds.

Some classes had the opportunity to work with organizations like the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary and Volunteers for Wildlife. Educators with the Theodore Roosevelt Sanctuary spoke with students about bird adaptations whereas Volunteers for Wildlife educators brought in real animals for students to make observations, while discussing their habitats and traits.

Students participated in hands-on activities as well, including decorating reusable grocery bags, recycled bead making, planting seeds to bring home and launching seed-balls with catapults made by kindergarten classes.
