Career Day took place on May 20, during which local community members visited the school to speak with students about their careers, including firefighting, police work, veterinarian services, dancing, and more.
The Garden Club recently visited Summerhill Farm, owned by parent Declan Blackmore, to learn about trees, diseases, and how to take soil samples. Each student will take samples of their own gardens to be sent to a lab.
Freshly picked greens from Southampton Schools’ organic garden are now being served in the school cafeterias. The garden has taken on a whole new look thanks to the generosity and hard work of many students, parents, and community members. Pat Daffy Woodworking built and provided new compost bins and Adam Halsey of Halsey Farms provided about 600 seedlings, and donated and built the deer fence. Cardel Development provided all of the materials, including wood, sand, and dirt, for the new raised beds and the Garden Club is putting to use the $250 grant received from the 2014 Southampton Town Community Service Challenge. Teachers from the home and careers and science departments are utilizing the garden in their lessons even more after a visit to the New York Botanical Gardens was provided by a grant from United Health Care.
