Sag Harbor Elementary School News, December 5


Sag Harbor Elementary School

The annual “Mitten Line” project, in which the wishes of local families in need are written on paper mittens and hung from a clothesline on the bulletin board in the hallway, is in process. Students and their families then take a mitten or mittens from the line, buy the requested item, and bring the unwrapped gift, with the mitten attached, to the school. School counselor Michelle Grant coordinates distribution of the gifts to the families. This tradition is an important school family custom that reinforces the importance of kindness and helping others. The Giving Mitten Line ends on Friday, December 13.

The fifth grade and kindergarten classes team up each year and the students become buddies, participating in events together, sharing learning opportunities, reading to each other, or going on joint field trips. The buddies in George Kneeland’s and Haley Luzim’s fifth grade class and Nina Landi’s kindergarten class performed together at Morning Program, singing the Beatles classic, “I Want to Hold Your Hand.”

The winter concert will take place on Thursday, December 12, at 7 p.m. in the elementary school gymnasium. Holiday and winter themed songs will be performed by all the musical groups, including band, large and small choruses, guitar ensemble and orchestra, in a festive evening for family, friends, and members of the community.

Deborah Price’s first grade class made a presentation at Morning Program, reciting the story, “Who Loves Getting Wet?” by Alan Trussel-Cullen and displaying their own watercolor illustrations to accompany the text in PowerPoint.

Various grade levels will make their performance art presentations on the following days: second grade, Thursday, December 5; first grade, Wednesday, December 11; and third grade, Monday, December 16. All performances will be at 1:50 the elementary school gymnasium.

The Sag Harbor Elementary School PTA will hold its annual Gingerbread Night on Friday, December 13, at 6:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.
