Mrs. Sukoff/Ms. Figari and Ms. Damadeo’s 4th grade classes recently participated in a community service project. The students made coloring books for the children at the NYU Cancer Center. This is the hospital that is linked with the Kicks for Cancer program that the Hauppauge High School organizes. Every year the girls’ HS soccer team takes a trip into the city and visits this hospital. They will be bringing the coloring books that our students made and hand them out to the children at the hospital. We are so proud of the community service our students are participating in and wanted to share this with you.
Mrs. Kennedy and Class 3-1 organized a collection of pumpkins from the families and staff at Bretton Woods. These pumpkins will be donated to the Double D Ranch in Manorville, NY. This farm cares for and houses unwanted and abused farm animals. The pumpkins will be used to make food. Great job by all! You can visit doubledbarranch.org to find out more about how you can help too!
Thanksgiving is here and we wanted to show the residents at the Arbors Assisted Living Community that Bretton Woods students in Ms. Figari and Mrs. Sukoff’s 4th grade class care about them. The students painted festive pictures on pumpkins and the Arbors will use these pumpkins to decorate for their Thanksgiving feast. Thanksgiving is a time to reflect. As we gather with family, friends and loved ones to enjoy our Thanksgiving dinner and the bounty of food at our tables, let’s take time to reflect on all that we have to be thankful for. This activity encouraged our students to be mindful of others and be appreciative of all that they have and what they can give to make others smile. CLICK headline for photos.
The First Grade students at Bretton Woods Elementary School have been studying life Long Ago as part of their Social Studies curriculum. One of the activities that they do is to celebrate the First Thanksgiving Feast, including all of the trimmings. The students dressed up in costumes made in school as well as some who dressed up from home. A good time will be had by all the students.
