Before heading into their winter break, Middle Country Central School District’s elementary schools were busy sharing the holiday spirit through various activities. Newfield High School’s Drum Club visited New Lane Elementary School to spread holiday cheer by performing with their drums. New Lane Elementary School students also read The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray. Students were given clues and had to figure out where the gingerbread man was hiding.
At Eugene Auer Elementary School and Holbrook Road Elementary School, the Elf visited to wish all the families a happy and safe winter break. Holbrook Road Elementary School also delivered beautiful poinsettias to Arbors Nursing home in Hauppauge.
Making a surprise visit to Middle Country Central School District’s pre-kindergarten students were the Grinch and the gingerbread man. The young learners spoke to the visitors about what the holidays mean to them and how excited they were to spend time with their loved ones. At Jericho Elementary School, Centereach High School student Adam Piotrowski, an accomplished accordion virtuoso, shared the holiday spirit by playing throughout the school’s halls and classrooms.
At Hawkins Path Elementary School, students, staff, PTA, and Santa served up holiday cheer at Apple Bee’s flapjack fundraiser to raise money to provide meaningful assemblies focusing on kindness, building self-esteem, and making possible visits by local authors.
