East Quogue Students Spread Kindness

Throughout the month of December, East Quogue Elementary School first-grade students spread the spirit of generosity as they collectively participated in activities benefiting others. 

The first-grade students took part in multiple community service initiatives as they engaged in random acts of kindness around the building. They created necklaces for faculty and staff members and gathered a collection of socks to be donated to local senior citizens. 

Continuing December’s theme of generosity, students created bookmarks in art class that they then included in letters to first-graders at the Helen Jydstrup Elementary School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Along with their letters, the East Quogue students included stuffed “Reading Bears” and books to share their love for reading with their new student buddies.

East Quogue Union Free School District students in Kimberly Clemensen's music class have been participating in a plethora of musical activities as they become familiar with musical instruments and rhythm concepts.

In a recent music class, first-grade students practiced composing rhythms by arranging popsicle sticks in different patterns. Third-grade students worked collaboratively as they practiced songs on their recorders and fifth-grade students astutely analyzed a cartoon for which they will compose their own soundtrack.

Students Learn about Landforms

Sixth grade students enjoyed an in-house field trip with Steve, an educator from the Group for the East End. He taught students about geological landforms and explained how Long Island was created by a glacier. This fun activity ended with an ice cream treat that simulated a glacier creating a landform.

Fifth-grade science students from East Quogue Elementary school recently participated in a science field study as part of their comparative research of Long Island's North and South shores.

During the field study at Wildwood State Park, students learned about the formation of our island as a terminal moraine, made up of the debris that has accumulated as a result of an advancing glacier. Then, utilizing soil sifters, students examined the rocky makeup of the North Shore soil. Students also studied directionality incorporating a compass to identify their location on the island.

Concluding the study, the student scientists created and studied topographic maps.

Fourth grade students at East Quogue Elementary School assembled Halloween goody bags for the children at Stony Brook Hospital. Each student decorated one bag and stuffed it with Halloween goodies such as slap bracelets, pencils, glow-in-the dark tattoos, stickers, activity pads, rainbow scratch masks and of course some gooey slime. This was a great activity to teach the students that giving is just as fun as receiving!
