The second-graders in April Carone’s class made a presentation about community helpers. They have been studying about the differences between rural, urban and suburban areas and tied those concepts in to the careers they envisioned for themselves in the future. There was a PowerPoint of their artwork depicting the various careers they had chosen.
Esther Ricker from the Ladies’ Auxiliary of the American Legion came to Morning Program to tell our students about Memorial Day.

Physical education teacher Hank Katz announced the latest members of our Milers Club at Morning Program.

At Morning Program, Principal Matthew Malone introduced members of the Sag Harbor Whalers, our team from the Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League. Many of these players are being sponsored by and residing with families of our students during the season. They each announced the college they will be attending, as well as their area of study. Team manager and coach Brendan Monaghan spoke to the children about the importance of working hard in school. Coach Monaghan and parent Sandi Kruel presented Mr. Malone, a dedicated Mets fan, with a plaque and bobble head doll of Mets legend John Franco. The Hamptons Collegiate Baseball League season schedule and other information about the league are available at hamptonsbaseball.org.
School nurse Margaret Pulkingham talked at Morning Program about the importance of eating a nutritious breakfast. The entire student body danced to a video called “Think Breakfast,” which they had learned in class with music teacher Gavin Lahann.
