Prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, elementary students gave thanks in a variety of ways and settings.

At Tuttle Avenue Elementary School students participated in a Thanksgiving celebration, which recognized and honored all essential workers in their school and the veterans in their community. It was a morning of poetry and song as each of the grade’s classrooms donned turkey and pilgrim headdresses and took to the stage to perform a variety of Thanksgiving holiday music and to recognize the important work that the faculty and staff do each day.

At Eastport Elementary School, sixth grade students attended a Thanksgiving feast get-together. They ate their turkey and fixings, prepared by the PTO, generous parents and teacher George Marino. “I’m grateful for” placemats were also created by the students and included a family photo and a short description for which they are most thankful.

South Street Elementary School students also demonstrated generosity by donating baskets of nonperishable food items and toiletries. The baskets will be distributed throughout the community to families in need.

In recognition of Veterans Day, Eastport Elementary School students provided local veterans with a special breakfast in the school cafeteria on Nov. 9.

The honored guests from all branches of the military were cheered by the student body as they walked through the halls. Then joined by families and student-relatives attending Eastport Elementary School, the veterans settled down to coffee and breakfast while speaking with the students about their experiences in the military. They also had the chance to peruse biographies taped to the cafeteria walls about “My Favorite Veteran.”

Principal Thomas Fabian welcomed the veterans to the breakfast and thanked them for their service. “We want Veterans Day to be in the minds of our students and not just another day off,” Mr. Fabian said. “We believe in giving back to the community, and this is one of the ways we can give back to those who have served.”

For one full week, Eastport Elementary School students made their health and social-emotional well-being a priority through participation in Wellness Week, held from Oct. 9-13. Each day, students participated in activities that made them stronger and healthier individuals, and learned lessons that will last them a lifetime.

Students incorporated mindful music into art lessons to add to the creative process and participated in a WizFit Challenge during physical education classes. Using “Classic Goes Pop,” pop music was transformed to classical renditions for a relaxing and calm atmosphere. Students also learned about the use of therapy dogs and spent some time with one. There were also schedule mindfulness walks and a story walk based on Susan Verde’s “I Am Peace.” The students read each page of the book as they walked along the story book trail and learned about the meaning of mindfulness. An apple coding activity also led to learning about animated sprites and a discussion about healthy eating.

The PTO also provided healthy yogurt bars, fruit cups and wellness kits for faculty and staff to enjoy.
