Sag Harbor Elementary School
Bethany Deyermond’s third grade class took part in a Questionnaire Project. Each student met with an elder (often a family member), who filled out a questionnaire about the changes observed over his or her lifetime. The children made posters about the person they interviewed, which included name, date of birth, pictures or illustrations with captions, and a quote from the person. The interviewees were invited to the classroom at the culmination of the project.
The first-graders in Jennifer Regan’s class made a presentation of some of the things they learned in Spanish class with teacher Rafaela Messinger at Morning Program. They recited a poem, “La Mariposa” with a Power Point of their drawings of butterflies in the background and sang the song “Des Colores.”
School counselor Michelle Grant is coordinating different presentations and guests to teach about career awareness at Morning Program throughout the month of May. Principal Matt Malone and Assistant Principal Donna Denon played a game about careers of the past such as bowling pin setter, switchboard operator and nut picker. The students were asked to imagine careers of the future such as avatar creator and vertical farmer. We also had parent David Waksman come to talk about his career designing and manufacturing large three-dimensional polystyrene masks.
