Third Graders in Mrs. Trapanotto’s class are helping the environment in two important ways. They recycle redeemable bottles and cans, and use the money they collect to help rehabilitate sea animals through the Riverhead Foundation for Marine Research and Preservation. This school year the class raised enough money to adopt five animals- three seals and two sea turtles! Two of the animals are currently in rehabilitation at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead. Adoption donations to the Riverhead Foundation help defray the cost of food and medicines that the rescued animals need to regain their health and be released back to the wild. Through this experience, the students are learning that even children can make a difference in the world!
Mrs. Weeks, Mrs. Dungate, and Mrs. Karpowicz's 5th grade classes performed a musical production titled Tide Pool Condos on Wednesday, June 6th. The oceanography show explored the wonders of the ocean to show real estate agents how important it is not to destroy tide pools to build condominiums. Poseidon, Neptune, and various creatures of the sea, show the real estate agents how interconnected our ecosystem is.
During the month of April Mrs. Phelan’s class participated in an Earth Day poster contest for Hauppauge fifth graders sponsored by Eastern Long Island Solar Project LLC. Srihan A. won with his poster titled, “We are Not Just Killing Trees.” Srihan was awarded a prize of $100 for his poster. We are very proud of Srihan!
