While it was not decided who would win the Super Bowl (Broncos by 100 points), the school did an excellent job of collecting cans of soup in the sixth annual “SOUP”er Bowl on Friday, January 31, at Morning Program. The Sag Harbor food pantry got 427 cans of soup as a result.
Music teacher David Fox talked about groundhogs at Morning Program as a tie-in to Ground Hog Day, explaining that we should expect six more weeks of cold weather because the groundhog did see his shadow on February 2. He gave other information about groundhogs including the fact that they are also called whistle pigs, and then for fun, led the students in a speed singing rendition of “How Much Wood Would a Woodchuck Chuck?”
School will be closed for mid-winter recess from February 17 to 21.
