East Quogue Elementary School students recently participated in a number of exciting physical activities as part of the annual Field Day events.
This year, students competed in a plethora of engaging challenges such as steal the bacon, flag tag, Mississippi river and mat madness. Physical education leaders lent a helping hand during the kindergarten, first-, second- and third-grade Field Day activities.
Concluding the fun-filled day, the PTA served a refreshing treat of watermelon for the student-participants to enjoy.
In addition to the Field Day activities, during the last week of school students participated in the Running Into Summer event that encouraged students to arrive to school early and be active. As part of the event, students collected donations for the Wellness Committee.
Students across grade levels at East Quogue Elementary School recently participated in the third annual Flag Day Ceremony that celebrated the American flag and honored veterans from surrounding communities.
As part of the event, organized by Susan Masera, the East Quogue marching band performed “You’re a Grand Old Flag” under the direction of Penni Russo. Accompanying the band were fifth- and sixth-grade students who sang along from the sidelines.
On Wednesday evening, the marching band will take the field of Bethpage Ballpark in Central Islip for its final performance of the year, where it will perform the national anthem prior to the Long Island Ducks baseball game.
A recent science lesson amazed third-grade students at East Quogue Elementary School as they observed the life cycle of butterflies. Beginning at the larva stage, students watched the transition process into the chrysalis stage before it transformed into a beautiful adult butterfly.
As part of the unit, students also studied parts of a caterpillar and butterfly and what each of the creatures eat.
