On Friday, May 10th, Bretton Woods was honored to have the ALS Ride For Life walk to our school. The weather was on our side and the students were lined up ready to cheer. When the riders arrived, students and faculty welcomed them with words of encouragement. We were able to present a generous donation from the Bretton Woods staff. Bretton Woods was recognized with a Certificate of Appreciation for participating in the ride. We hope to be one of their stops again next year!
Bretton Woods students participated in an Arts in Education Zumba program May 6th-May 10th in all Physical Education classes. This program was led by Jeanine Ekclund "The Zumba Lady". Zumba fuses Latin rhythms with easy to follow dance and exercise moves. The students, along with physical education teachers, Ms. Hanlon and Mrs. Casale, enjoyed moving to the beat and getting some exercise at the same time.
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. Currently the class has raised enough money to adopt three animals- one seal and two sea turtles. The two sea turtles are currently in rehabilitation at the Long Island Aquarium in Riverhead, while the seal has just been released. 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!

On Wednesday, March 27th, the BW kindergarten students took part in a “Teddy Bear Clinic”. The “Teddy Bear Clinic” was introduced to Bretton Woods by 5th grade teacher, Mrs. Leventhal and is an injury prevention program for children sponsored by the Trauma Center at Stony Brook Children’s Hospital. Mrs. Leventhal’s 5th grade students help with the program and assist the kindergartners as they first learn about car and helmet safety in a fun and interactive way before dressing up as doctors and nurses to take care of their “injured” stuffed animals.
