Helen Atkinson-Barnes of The Retreat, which offers domestic violence prevention services, has recently been a guest speaker at the school presenting the “Hands are not for Hitting!” program to first- and third-grade students. A series of three workshops, the “Hands are not for Hitting!” program covers topics such as feelings and healthy ways to express them, manners and the golden rule of treating others with respect, bullying information and prevention, and cyber safety.

Bridgehampton High School seniors Tatyana Dawson and Jennah Hochstedler have been nominated for scholarships from the National Honor Society. The nominations celebrate their achievements in scholarship, leadership, character, and service to the community.

The third quarter ASPIRE (After School Program for Inquiry, Research, and Enrichment) program began on Monday, January 27, by welcoming the newest members with an Authors’ Tea celebration. Current student members of the Aspire program wrote and illustrated original tall tales and shared them at the celebratory tea with new members. ASPIRE teachers Jen Suarez and Aleaze Hodgens coordinate the after-school program, which provides opportunities for enrichment in reading, writing and investigative skills. The theme for the third quarter of ASPIRE will be an in-depth study of fables.
