Southampton Community Notes, May 30


Southampton High School
Several students in Jennifer Keller’s Advanced Placement environmental science classes have been named finalists in the East End Seaport Museum’s East End Challenge. The challenge, open to all high school students on the East End was to “complete a project that explores the intersection of science and art—much as Rachel Carson did, who used literature to express the findings of her rigorous scientific observations.” Claire Hunter completed a project on Mecox Bay; Nathalia Gracia, Gwen Clarke, and John Kraus completed a project on septic pollution in our bays; Carley Guida, Harrison Carter and Allison O’Connor completed a project on cultural eutrophication in Agawam Lake; Shannon Manley, Cassie Scanlon and Eden Benard completed a project on litter; and Maria Clemente and Kassandra Taraku completed a project on DDT and bioaccumulation in ospreys on the East End. The students will be honored with cash awards ranging from $100 to $1,000 at a reception at the East End Seaport Museum on May 25th.
Southampton Intermediate School
The eighth grade class traveled to Washington, D.C. from May 21 to 23. The itinerary for the three-day, two-night trip included visiting the Capitol, the Holocaust Museum, the monuments, Arlington Cemetery, Mount Vernon, Georgetown University, and a Smithsonian Museum.
Southampton Elementary School
It was Leadership Week last week at the school and each grade level presented their community service projects during special Morning Programs and the week culminated with a visit from local leaders on Friday, May 24. Visitors were given a tour of the school building by student tour guides before enjoying lunch and entertainment by SES strings, Performance Club and kindergarten students. The guests had the opportunity to view presentations and speak to students about their year-long community service projects at the Leadership Expo in the gymnasium. During the closing ceremony, Student Council representatives honored retiring teachers Debra Peters and Cathleen Musick for their years of service to the students of Southampton Elementary School.
