The resilience and perseverance of the Class of 2021 paid off as the last of outdoor Covid restrictions were lifted just days before "Stepping Up". Many thanks go out to our 5th grade teachers, administration and especially our custodians for being able to pivot so quickly to an outside venue. Our empty fields were transformed when filled with beach chairs, a BW stage and dais replete with our mascot "Hootie"! June 23rd dawned crisp and clear and was soon followed by the familiar strains of "Pomp and Circumstance". CLICK on the story headline to see the many happy faces at Bretton Woods' Stepping Up. Congratulations and good luck to all our future middle-schoolers. We will miss you.
Before our Hauppauge Seniors walked across the stage in their cap and gown, they came back to where it all began and paraded along the campus at Bretton Woods. It was awesome to see how proud their teachers were and how inspiring it was to the young students of BW. The Class of 2021 overcame a lot this year and they should be very proud. Students and teacher waved signs of congratulations and cheered them on as they wound their way around the school ending up on the fields where they played together and began to grow into the amazing people they are today!

From June 7 through June 11, Student Government sponsored a fundraiser for two organizations: The Ronald McDonald House and the World Wildlife Foundation. Each day, students dropped coins into containers located in their classrooms. Jars filled up quickly and the totals in each class were amazing. As a result of the outstanding effort by the entire school, a grand total of $2,663.94 was raised to be split evenly between the two charities. Thank you to all the teachers who helped to promote this fundraiser in their classes. We applaud the wonderful effort of the entire school to rally to raise so much money for these groups.
